Medtronic’s supply chain is “holding up OK, but we’re seeing pressures like everybody else,” Parkhill said Friday in an interview with MassDevice‘s sister site Medical Design & Outsourcing.
“Semiconductors are an issue. Resins are an issue,” Parkhill said. “I think it helps that we’re a medical device manufacturer that’s producing life-saving technology … because when push comes to shove, I think we’re more important than new cars coming off the line, for example. We haven’t necessarily pulled that card, but I do think that that could help if needed.”
