I am from Buffalo, NY where the company was started by Mr Greatbatch. Back in 1985, a friend of mine accepted an engineering position with the company. The rest of us were envious. Greatbatch was a premier place to work, cutting edge technology, developing product to help people, a growing company.

Well have things changed. Mr Greatbatch left the company. New management from a local GM division came in. First management purchased a plant from another local Buffalo company. Then after they purchased it, they decided they could not use it - it was not suitable for a production facility. No clear direction. I do not think they know where the company should be taken.

If you are interested in my personal opinions, email me -

Now the stock has hit a real low. WOW.

Very few follow the stock, few are interested now.

I long for the 1980's !
