EaglePicher Medical Power Moves to Texas



EaglePicher Medical Power supplies batteries for implantable medical devices, such as its Micro Cell battery, which can be deployed via a minimally invasive catheter.

EaglePicher Medical Power LLC, an EaglePicher company, is in the process of moving its headquarters to Plano, TX. The company supplies primary and rechargeable batteries for implantable medical devices. Previously located in Joplin, MO, the supplier plans to open its new facility in March 2009, complete with a state-of-the-art research and development center. The 20,000-sq-ft center will house laboratories and equipment for testing and manufacturing lithium batteries.The Texas location was chosen to help the company better focus on the markets it serves and to provide room for growth. Having experienced an increase in growth and innovation in recent years as a result of demand for smaller, lighter-weight, more-advanced batteries, the company also plans to open a manufacturing plant at the Plano headquarters in the future. It currently operates two manufacturing facilities and one R&D center in Joplin.The company's batteries are suited for use in such medical devices as pacemakers, ICDs, heart monitors, pain-management devices, cochlear implants, and neuromodulation systems. It offers a range of electrochemistries for implantable applications, including lithium-ion, lithium manganese dioxide, lithium thionyl chloride, and lithium carbon monofluoride.
