GM and Ventec Life Systems, in cooperation with StopTheSpread.org*, are collaborating to help Ventec increase production of its respiratory care products to help against the growing COVID-19 pandemic. Ventec will use GM’s logistics, purchasing and manufacturing expertise to build more of its critically important ventilators.
“With GM’s help, Ventec will increase ventilator production,” says Chris Kiple, Ventec Life Systems CEO. “By tapping their expertise, GM is enabling us to get more ventilators to more hospitals much faster. This partnership will help save lives.”
Mary Barra, GM Chairman and CEO says, “We are working closely with Ventec to rapidly scale up production of their critically important respiratory products to support our country’s fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. We will continue to explore ways to help in this time of crisis.”
