MG Motor India has announced that it has joined hands with Vadodara-based MAX Ventilator, a part of A.B. Industries, to increase ventilator production to fight the Covid-19 pandemic. Founded in 1995, A.B. Industries has been manufacturing ventilators for the last 25 years. MG Motor India says Max Ventilator is among the top 25 ventilator brands in the world and caters primarily to private hospitals.
The collaboration will focus on assisting the overall production of ventilators by addressing specific areas of the supply chain, IT system and manufacturing processes. The production capacity would be increased five times to 300 ventilators per month in Phase I which should be completed within next 8 weeks. In Phase II, the production capacity can be enhanced up to 1,000 ventilators per month, depending upon the demand, especially from the government hospitals to help meet the shortage of the life-saving medical devices in the country.
Rajeev Chaba, president and MD, MG Motor India said, “At MG, we are committed to supporting our country’s fight against Covid-19 crisis. We understand that ventilators are the most critical requirement at this time, and we would do our best to enhance ventilator production.
