Medtronic is the world’s largest medical technology company, offering an unprecedented breadth and depth of innovative therapies to fulfill their goals of stopping pain, restoring health, and extending life. Last year, millions of people relied on Medtronic medical therapies, which treated cardiac and vascular diseases, diabetes, and neurological and musculoskeletal conditions. Medtronic has a global reach that extends to more than 100 countries with almost 50,000 employees.

Medtronic contacted PS&C because they had a need for the best and most dependable Uninterruptible Power Supply system available on the market to backup one of their advanced manufacturing facilities. This important plant was located in Puerto Rico, and they decided to go with PS&C Series MC UPS systems with battery backup to support their critical operations. However, Medtronic was so satisfied that they ordered additional units a few months later. This second round of UPS systems were Hybrid Rotary Uninterruptible Power Supply systems with Flywheel. This was one the first opportunities that PS&C has had manufacturing a Series MC with the flywheel technology as the backup power source. However, Engineering and Manufacturing were able to successfully collaborate to complete these two projects and earn another satisfied customer.
