MG Motor India has collaborated with MAX Ventilator- a part of A.B. Industries, to increase the production of ventilators in India. Vadodara-based MAX Ventilator is among the top 25 ventilator brands in the world and caters primarily to the private hospitals.
The manufacturers are coming together to focus on assisting the overall production of ventilators by addressing specific areas of the supply chain, IT system, and manufacturing processes. In the first phase, the production capacity would be increased five times to 300 ventilators per month. The brands plan on a second phase which would up the production to 1,000 ventilators per month, depending upon the demand, especially from the government hospitals to help meet the shortage of life-saving medical devices in the country.
Speaking on the association, Rajeev Chaba, President & Managing Director, 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. The collaboration comes as a result of aligned core values of both organizations and is designed to work towards the common goal of serving the communities around where our operations are based.”
