loans to U.S. and Israeli com-
panies doing business over-
seas, Gelman then opened a
splinter lab. After a year of
research, the idea appeared
feasible. Dr. Tanny hired more
scientists and they developed
the membrane filter.
"For some reason, Israel is
a center for membrane re-
search," Gelman says, adding
Israel has been a good busi-
ness move for his company.
"If you have a reason to do
business there, you should
give Israel some preference. I
support Israel," Gelman says.
"You don't do business just for
Zionistic purposes."
Costs for running a sub-
sidiary in Israel are about the
same as operating in the
United States, he says. Direct
wages are less, but taxes are
higher. Productivity is a little
lower, too, he says. Offices are
closed for Jewish holidays and
many employees get six
weeks off a year to serve in
the army.
"There are a lot of holidays,
and if . you do business in
Israel, you must take it into
consideration," Gelman says.
"There is bureaucratic red
tape, but you just have to get
by it. You must learn about
the local climate before set-
ting up business."
Dr. Tanny, he says, helped
the company learn about
potential problems in Israeli
business.
Publicly traded on the
American Stock Exchange,
Gelman Sciences is not heavi-
ly followed by Wall Street
analysts. But Gregor says the
Sunbeam process may give
Gelman the boost it needs to
attract more attention.
Its two major competitors
are Millipore Corp. of Bed-
ford, Mass., and Pall Corp. of
New York. Gelman is much
smaller than either, yet each
company holds its own niche.
Millipore, the world's
largest filtration company,
manufactures products used
primarily for analysis and
purification of liquids. Last
year, Millipore generated
about $621 million in sales.
Pall Corp., which primarily
makes fluid filters for use in
aerospace, biomedics and
fluid processing, sold $429
million in products last year.
A chemist with a BS in
chemistry and an MS in
public health, Gelman
started his business in 1957,
when he produced air pollu-
tion monitoring devices. At
the request of the U.S.
Department of Health, he
built an automated air
sampler. In 1963, the corn-
pany went public, moving in-
to the Ann Arbor facility, now
54 acres. At that time, he
switched the company's direc-

tion to making membrane
filters for scientific, industrial
and medical use. O
