Welcome to Vancouver, British Columbia
In 2000, EaglePicher acquired BlueStar Battery Systems in Surrey, British Columbia, just outside of Vancouver. BlueStar Battery Systems was focused on the development of batteries solely for medical products. The facility produced battery powered solutions to meet the demands of the medical implantable industry for nearly two decades.
The first implantable lithium-ion battery and the industry’s smallest implantable medical battery were both developed and manufactured in this facility.
What We Do
This location is the primary manufacturing location for EaglePicher Medical Power and has grown to include battery solutions for implantable pacemakers, cardiac monitors, neuromodulators and cochlear devices.
