EaglePicher Relocates to Plano

Medical device maker EaglePicher relocated to Plano from Missouri. The company makes implantable batteries for pacemakers, implanted cardio defibrillators, heart monitors, cochlear implants, pain management devices, neurostimulators and spinal cord and deep-brain stimulators. The company chose Plano due to its proximity to its customer St. Jude Medical Neuromodulation Division, DFW International airport and skilled labor. (4/09)
