Greatbatch Medical Opens Orthopaedic Manufacturing Center

Greatbatch Medical, a subsidiary of Greatbatch, Inc., officially opened its 80,000 square foot, state of the art, orthopaedic manufacturing center in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Greatbatch President and CEO Thomas J. Hook, and Greatbatch Medical President Mauricio Arellano were joined by U.S. Congressman Marlin Stutzman, local elected and business leaders and employees of Greatbatch Medical as they conducted a ceremonial ribbon cutting.

“This $17 million investment is the third project Greatbatch Medical has deployed as part of an overall strategy to partner with orthopaedic device makers,” said Mauricio Arellano, president, Greatbatch Medical. “We have made strategic investments with an intense focus on growing our global orthopaedics business through a sound commercial strategy, continuous investments in medical device innovations and streamlined operations and best in class execution.”

In 2010, Greatbatch Medical established an orthopaedic design center in nearby Warsaw, Indiana, providing customers with rapid prototyping capabilities to develop and deliver innovative solutions. In 2011, Greatbatch Medical completed more than $6 million investment at its Indianapolis, Indiana manufacturing facility where they produce orthopaedic delivery systems.

“Our company’s vision is to be the definitive leader in critical technologies by infusing integrity, innovation and operational excellence,” said Thomas J. Hook, president and CEO. “This investment is a critical part of our growth strategy as we strive to achieve growth in our core business, growth through targeted acquisitions and growth through new, innovative medical devices.”

Members of the Greatbatch Executive Leadership team were on hand as Hook and Arellano dedicated the facility in honor of Susan H. Campbell, who passed away unexpectedly in 2010. Campbell served as senior vice president of Greatbatch Medical’s Orthopaedic Business Unit.

“Today is a day of mixed emotions as we celebrate the opening of this tremendous facility and pay tribute to the life of our colleague and friend, Susan Campbell, who left this world much too soon,” said Thomas J. Hook, President and CEO of Greatbatch. “I am honored that Susan’s family is here with us today to witness the lasting impression she has on us as a company and as individuals.”
