was co-founded in 1956 by George N. Hatsopoulos
George N. Hatsopoulos
and Peter M Nomikos. Hatsopoulos is a MIT PhD in mechanical engineering and Nomikos a Harvard Business School
Harvard Business School
graduate.[6] It focused on providing analytical and laboratory products and services, and had revenues of over $2 billion in 2004.[7] Fisher Scientific
Fisher Scientific
was founded in 1902 by Chester G. Fisher from Pittsburgh.[8][9] It focused on providing laboratory equipment, chemicals, supplies and services used in healthcare, scientific research, safety, and education.[10] On May 14, 2006, Thermo Electron

and Fisher Scientific
Fisher Scientific
announced that they would merge in a tax-free, stock-for-stock exchange; the merged company was named Thermo Fisher Scientific.[11] On November 9, 2006, the companies announced that the merger had been completed.[11] However, the Federal Trade Commission
Federal Trade Commission
ruled that this acquisition was anticompetitive with regard to centrifugal evaporators, requiring Fisher to divest Genevac.[12] In April 2007, Genevac was sold to Riverlake Partners LLC[13] and the merger closed with FTC approval.[14] Currently, the company's products are sold under the brand names of Thermo Scientific, Fisher Scientific, and several other recognized brand names (e.g. Chromacol, Nalgene, Cellomics, Pierce Protein Research and Fermentas). According to company figures, 46% of its sales are in life sciences, 20% in healthcare, and 34% in industrial/environmental and safety.[10] Thermo Fisher has offices and operations in many countries, notably the U.S. and in Europe. In May 2011, Thermo Fisher Scientific
Fisher Scientific
Inc. bought Phadia to expand in testing for allergies and autoimmune diseases for €2.47 billion ($3.5 billion) in cash purchase.[15] In 2013 Thermo Fisher agreed to buy Life Technologies for $13.6 billion. The sale was completed on 4 February 2014, and the Life Technologies brand became part of the Life Sciences Solutions Group of Thermo Fisher Scientific. In February 2015, the company announced it would acquire Advanced Scientifics for $300 million in a cash-deal. ASI designs, manufactures and delivers technologies used in bioprocessing solutions.[16] In June 2015, the company announced its intention to acquire Alfa Aesar, a global manufacturer of research chemicals for $405 million[17] from Johnson Matthey, and the acquisition was completed at the end of September[18] In January 2016, the company announced it would acquire Affymetrix
Affymetrix
for $1.3 billion.[19] On May 27, 2016, the company announced it would acquire FEI Company
FEI Company
for $4.2 billion, a manufacturer of electron microscopes.[20][21] This acquisition is anticipated to close in early 2017 and will contribute to the growth of Thermo's Analytical Instruments business group.[22] In November the company announced it would acquire MTI-GlobalStem, a previously privately held company that develops reagents for cell transfection, neurobiology and stem cell research.[23] In February 2017, the company acquired Finesse Solutions, Inc., developer of scalable control automation systems and software for bioproduction after receiving early termination of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act.[24] The transaction was completed a day later.[25] In March, the company announced it would acquire Core Informatics, provider of cloud-based platforms supporting scientific data management.[26] In May, the company announced it would acquire CDMO, Patheon, for $7.2 billion.[27] Acquisition history[edit] The following is an illustration of the company's major mergers and acquisitions and historical predecessors (this is not a comprehensive list):
