BUMAX has offered to provide companies that are producing much-needed ventilators with at-cost premium fasteners for their devices – as well as doing its best to maintain supply for all customers.
All around the globe, healthcare providers are using ventilators to treat the growing number of Covid-19 patients. Ventilators are essential in keeping people alive by helping to oxygenate their bloodstream. However, many hospitals don’t have enough ventilators and BUMAX has offered to support the production of ventilators by providing at-cost fasteners.
“We have already offered at-cost fasteners to companies manufacturing ‘basic’ breathing machines that can be rapidly produced on a large scale to cope with demand and save lives,” says Patrik Lundström Törnquist, managing director at BUMAX. “This is an open offer to all companies around the world who are developing and producing ventilators and other critical medical equipment to deal with Covid-19 – so please contact me to find out more.”
Manufacturers of medical components, including for ventilators, typically opt for BUMAX fasteners as they offer higher strength and consistency. “Our products reduce the risk of device failure – which can be critical in medical applications,” says Törnquist.
Premium fasteners play an important role in a wide range of critical applications all around the world. BUMAX is working to maintain the supply of its fasteners to ensure Covid-19 has minimal disruption on the global supply chain.
“We already maintain a large stock of our products that are ready for shipping – including both standard BUMAX products and some custom products,” explains Törnquist. “We have also set up our production teams in Sweden to minimize the direct impacts of Covid-19 on our production.”
