Stocks in this article: GB

Electrochem Solutions, Inc., a subsidiary of Greatbatch, Inc. (NYSE:GB), completed its ISO 13485:2003 registration audit, conducted by the National Standards Authority of Ireland (NSAI), and received recommendation for certification.

ISO 13485:2003 certification specifies processes for an organization’s quality management system to demonstrate the ability to provide medical devices and related services that consistently meet regulatory and customer requirements pertaining to medical device application standards. Electrochem specializes in technology solutions for critical missions where failure is not an option. This certification, coupled with Electrochem’s recent acquisition of Micro Power Electronics, an organization that is also ISO 13485:2003 certified, is a testament to Electrochem’s long-term commitment to the portable medical marketplace.

“We are thrilled to have earned this recognition because of the hard work and dedication our associates have shown to make Electrochem a world-class organization. This certification proves our commitment to quality for portable medical devices, of which we provide enabling power,” said Kevin Christopher, Director of Quality, Electrochem. “And, we firmly believe that by having high standards across all of our business processes, our customers will benefit from our ability to consistently meet their expectations and facilitate continued growth.”

Electrochem expects final certification to be delivered over the next six weeks.
