Hitado's remarkable journey begins with an unexpected turn in the life of André Michel, the current Managing Director. He originally came to the Möhnesee to buy a car, but ended up in an unforeseen career at Hitado instead. Under his leadership, the company has grown to almost 100 employees.
A major milestone was the takeover by Sysmex in 2010, which brought new opportunities in processes and global reach. Today, Hitado is a key brand of Sysmex, with around 5,000 active device systems and approximately 9,000 customers.
