A global company in the advanced technology medical device and contract manufacturing and engineering services industry makes its home in Upper Bucks. Based in Milford Township, Pulse Technologies is a major player in the area’s economy and a global player in the medical device, component and assembly industry.
“What sets us apart is quality, service, technology and commitment,” said Pulse Technologies Director of Global Sales and Marketing Robert Madigan.
Specialized customer service is required by the Pulse Technologies’ team because of the niche industry the firm serves – and lives depend upon it. “We offer high levels of quality and our owners and our company have invested in, and embraced, advanced technology,” Madigan said.
Such technology advances includes ultra smooth medical surfaces and pump components used during surgical procedures, along with the development of new metals to be used in devices, components and implants for patient treatment and care, according to Madigan. “We are developing new materials specifically (for) medical markets,” Madigan said.
Pulse Technologies employs about 188 full time staff, working across three shifts; up to six days a week in its 70,000 square foot facility.
Madigan said 97 percent of the company’s business is medical device implants and examples would be heart pacemaker lead components and stent-line implants.
Pulse Technologies serves cardiac, vascular, orthopedic, spinal and extremity; neurostimulation, cochlear and ophthalmic, device, component and implant markets, the company’s website said. While 80 percent of the firm’s business is to clients in North America, on the global market Pulse Technologies serves customers in Europe, Israel, Southeast Asia and Australia, Madigan said. “We work closely with our customers to make life saving devices that are economically feasible,” Madigan explained.
Pulse Technologies was founded in 1993 by Bob Walsh and Frank Henofer, who are involved in the strategic focus and direction of the company, Madigan said.
