Crescent Manufacturing, a supplier of miniature fasteners to distributors throughout North America and a growing international market, is currently supporting the fight against COVID-19. The U.S.-based manufacturer is producing 800,000 brass fasteners for ventilators.
As Crescent Manufacturing is an integral part of the Ford/GE HealthCare supply chain, Ford/GE reached out to for help in making the ventilator machines, which are still in critical demand in hospitals.
After receiving the specs for the fasteners required for these intricate machines, Crescent was able to provide the the much-needed components.
There was an informative article describing this healthcare supply chain in the “Wall Street Journal” on April 12, 2020, available to WSJ subscribers here.
Crescent Manufacturing has been providing specialty, miniature screws — including the 3/8 (M10) sized fasteners — to the aerospace, military, and commercial sectors, as well as special engineered components for more than 50 years. The company meets the most demanding specifications, including MIL-I-45208A for Quality Systems and MIL-STD-45662A for Gage Calibration Systems.
