Biomet Inc: From Warsaw to the World
Write Stuff Enterprises, 2002 - Business & Economics - 144 pages
In the 1970's four men and their wives entered into a risky venture amid the cornfields of Indiana, taking on the orthopedic industry to form Biomet. In the face of formidable competition, the company has become a symbol of responsiveness and integrity. Today with more than $1 billion in sales and 3,000 employees, Biomet is a world leader in reconstructive hips: knees; and shoulders: dental implants: operating room supplies: and bone--growth stimulators. Lavishly illustrated, Biomet Inc--From Warsaw to the world by Richard F. Hubbard and Jeffrey L. Rodengen, chronicles the inspiring story of a rags-to-riches company that has improved the quality of life of tens of thousands of patients.
