Description: Greatbatch develops and manufactures critical medical device technologies for the cardiac, neuromodulation, vascular and orthopaedic markets; and batteries for high-end niche applications in the portable medical, energy, military, and environmental markets.
Greatbatch began more than 40 years ago in arguably the most critical and regulated proving ground that exists today –implantable medical devices – after Wilson Greatbatch co-invented the world’s first implantable cardiac pacemaker. Since then, their business has expanded well beyond pacemakers. Because of proven expertise in the implantable medical device field, where products need to perform reliably and consistently for years inside the human body, Greatbatch knew they could develop products that would serve other medical and non-medical customers as well.
Greatbatch now serves customers in the cardiac, nerromodulation, vascular, orthopaedics, portable medical, environmental, military and energy markets. They design, develop, and adapt new and existing innovations – from core discrete technologies to complete devices – to meet customers’ specific requirements. At Greatbatch, customization is standard. And customers from around the globe agree. Many engage Greatbatch throughout their entire product development cycles, from leveraging research and design expertise to the manufacturing of finished products.
