Resonetics has acquired EaglePicher Technologies’ Medical Power business, a manufacturer of implantable batteries for critical medical devices.
EaglePicher Medical Power—based near Vancouver, British Columbia—has been designing and manufacturing batteries for medical devices for over 25 years and produced one of the first lithium-ion cells for an implantable medical device.
The Vancouver site features a modern 60,000 square foot facility with extensive application engineering resources and manufacturing expertise. Chris Huntington, president, EaglePicher Medical Power, will join Resonetics as its chief commercial officer.
“EaglePicher Medical Power brings another innovative manufacturing capability to Resonetics that will enable our customers to advance the state-of-the-art in clinical applications requiring miniaturized bioelectronic devices,” says Tom Burns, president and CEO of Resonetics. “We believe integrating this essential battery technology into our core micro manufacturing and sensor capabilities uniquely positions Resonetics as a leading supplier to companies pursuing miniaturized implantable and wearable devices to address unmet clinical needs.”
Resonetics has completed eleven acquisitions in the past five years and has over 1,900 employees that operate out of 14 sites located in key medical technology markets with facilities totaling more than 650,000 square feet.
“We’re excited to welcome the team in Vancouver to Resonetics and to have Chris Huntington join our senior leadership team,” says Tom Burns. “Chris brings a wealth of MedTech experience gained over the last 20 years in the industry, including leadership positions with Stryker and Symmetry Medical in addition to EaglePicher.”
Chris Huntington, CCO of Resonetics, added, “I’ve enjoyed leading EaglePicher’s Medical Power division over the last three years, and I look forward to joining Resonetics to support the company’s continued growth in advanced engineering and manufacturing solutions for the life sciences industry.”
