Lead Assemblies and Components

Seamless vertical integration is a must for successful medical device companies. With a complex supply chain, companies need to explicitly trust their outsourcing partners to deliver the components they need -- from coil to electrodes to machined components to wire -- perfectly produced to meet their demanding requirements. Reliability and performance are not just nice to have…they’re absolutely essential.
