Added Kevin Hartke, Chief Technical Officer, Resonetics, "We've been able to collaborate with the EaglePicher team and see a lot of synergies. We will invest further in their best-in-class battery solutions by implementing a Lightspeed Application Development Lab for battery solutions to compress development cycles and help our customers reduce their time to market."

"We're excited to welcome the team in Vancouver to Resonetics and to have Chris Huntington join our senior leadership team," said Tom Burns.
