“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,” said 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.” Added Kevin Hartke, Chief Technical Officer of Resonetics, “We’ve been able to collaborate with the EaglePicher team and see a lot of synergies. We will invest further in their best-in-class battery solutions by implementing a Lightspeed Application Development Lab for battery solutions to compress development cycles and help our customers reduce their time to market.”

“We’re excited to welcome the Vancouver team to Resonetics and have Chris Huntington join our senior leadership team,” said 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, commented, “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 micro-manufacturing solutions for medtech and the life sciences.”
