Greatbatch announced that it has acquired CCC Medical Devices (CCC), the globally-respected active implantable medical device (AIMD) systems developer and manufacturer, effective immediately.

Based in Montevideo, Uruguay, CCC designs and produces a range of devices for some of the world’s top medical device companies, including implantable pulse generators, programmer systems, battery chargers, patient wands and leads.

"Our acquisition of CCC is ideal by all accounts. It allows Greatbatch to more broadly partner with medical device companies, complements our core discrete technology offerings and enhances our medical device innovation efforts," said Thomas J. Hook, president and chief executive officer, Greatbatch. "Combining the knowledge, talent and customer base of both companies will produce better products for the medical community and better lives for people worldwide."
