After efforts to recover from a huge corporate scandal, Tyco International is splitting up
. The move will create three spin offs--Covidien, Tyco Electronics, and Tyco International. Covidien (Mansfield, MA)Â will become one of the largest medical equipment manufacturers in the world. According to the Newark Star Ledger
, its sales of ventilators and respiratory management products increased 4.2% toÂ $704 million during the first half of the year. The Boston Globe
is also reporting that Covidien is making a clear effort to distinguish itself from the tarnished Tyco name via billboards and other advertisements. The company markets a range of healthcare products under brand names including Autosuture, Kendall Healthcare, and Syneture.
