The campaign to close Huntingon Life Sciences has and will always be fought on a financial basis and targets are closely monitored for involvement with Huntingdon.
They come in three basic categories which have sub categories in them:
CUSTOMERS OF HLS
Without customers of HLS there simply would be no Huntingdon Life Sciences. The customers pay HLS to test products and carry out research. If HLS lost even just two of their customers in the next 12 months, then they wouldn't have an income and would have to close.
There are only ten companies which give HLS 45% of their income, these include AstraZeneca, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Pfizer and GlaxoSmithKline. To see our extensive list of customers, click here
The recession of 2008 / 2009 has hit Huntingdon very hard, and with their financials continually looking more depressing, Brian Cass has himself said their future is "uncertain". We have been told by an expert that the loss of just two customers is extremely likely to send HLS under - they would have to close down! So we are now generating a global effort focused upon customers of HLS.
Many of these companies would have been happy to supply Auschwitz. As far as we are concerned they come in three separate categories: General, Specialist, and Logistics. For a list of Huntingdon's suppliers please click here.
General suppliers are companies like office supply equipment who are not vital to Huntingdon but cause huge problems when they leave especially in large numbers. Imagine trying to run a business without paper! HLS had to build their own laundry facilities because there is not a single company in the UK who will do it for him.
Specialist Suppliers are companies like Phenomenex who supply scientific equipment that not many if any other companies manufacture or supply. Losing these companies would have a seriously damaging effect on Huntingdon, and could prevent them carrying out certain research.
Logistics Suppliers are companies who transport goods (including animals) for HLS. The main logistical supplier to HLS is a small company called PDP from Middlesex, UK. Other logistical suppliers are companies like Fedex and Monock Freight who ferry everything from primates to blood samples around the world. Without this logistical back bone Huntingdon would find it difficult to operate. What would they do if customers in Tokyo or New Jersey, U.S.A. couldn't send samples because no company would deliver to Huntingdon?
The three main targets are important customers to HLS - AstraZeneca, Bristol-Myers Squibb and Pfizer. Also important are Bayer, Sanofi Aventis, Schering Plough (Merck) and Syngenta. Most of the these companies have been exposed as using HLS in 2008 / 2010.
If you are unsure of who to target, we would recommend demonstrating against one of these top 3 customers. Alternatively, you can find other customers using our customer database. At the moment customers are essential to HLS' survival, and the loss of any one of them will be one huge step closer to closing them down.
Last on the list of importance are Huntingdon's suppliers, knocking them out will not close HLS but it will make life difficult for them and coupled with the above losses of a customer could prove to be devastating.
Finally: If you have got this far you are interested, if there is a company that you see on the website that you do not understand their importance or what they do, simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we are more than happy to explain it to you.
