If you’ve been following the recent updates in the COVID-19 outbreak, you may have noticed rising concerns about the anticipated demand for personal protective equipment (PPE) in hospitals and health care facilities.
As many countries around the world have experienced shortages in critical medical supplies, companies with manufacturing capabilities and capacity can play a crucial role in keeping health care workers safe.
The need for sophisticated medical equipment
The machinery used to make protective equipment and medical disposables, such as masks and coverall safety suits is often highly specialized. In hospitals, personal protection must be robust and resilient during long shifts. The quality and reliability of these supplies comes not only from the materials they’re made from but also the end-to-end manufacturing equipment used to create them.
Companies like ours can help support the production of these essential items with proven automation equipment and custom machinery for each stage in the production process.
Keller Technology Corporation stands ready to build machinery for medical products and PPE such as N95 masks and surgical masks. We can help you increase your capacity of these critical items to keep our healthcare workers safe in the fight against COVID-19. We can help the nation meet this challenge and our customers comply with the Defense Production Act. We have the capacity, experience, supply chain, facilities and personnel to help make a difference.
How to identify a qualified manufacturing partner
Medical device OEMs who are looking for a qualified manufacturing partner should look for companies with ISO 13485 accreditation and Current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP). While companies may be expanding their service offerings to include medical manufacturing during this crisis, the stakes are too high to work with businesses without proven qualifications.
