通用汽车和Ventec公司从美国卫生和公共服务部(Department of Health and Human Services)签订了一份价值4.894亿美元的合同,将在6月底前向国家战略储备交付6132台呼吸机,8月底前运送30000台。


在COVID-19大流行期间,美国和世界各地的医疗机构迫切需要更多的救生呼吸机。3月底,美国总统唐纳德•特朗普(Donald Trump)根据《朝鲜战争时期国防生产法案》(Korean War era Defense Production Act)要求美国卫生和公共服务部(HHS)订购呼吸机,该法案在战争或国家危机时期优先考虑政府订单。自那以后,政府根据法律共签署9份呼吸机合同,价值超过25亿美元。

白宫国防生产法案政策协调人Peter Navarro在一份通用汽车新闻稿件中说道:“在特朗普时代,通用汽车迅速采取行动,制造出美国抗击冠状病毒战争中最关键的救生设备之一。” 

通用汽车和Ventec公司尽力从供应商处采购数百个的零部件和组装件,设计新的制造工艺,改造通用汽车的Kokomo工厂,持续雇佣1000多名工厂工人,以及全面执行健康和安全工作场所协议。

两家公司表示,他们将在本月装运600多台呼吸机。‍

General Motors kicks off mass production of ventilators

General Motors today began mass production of the Ventec Life Systems V+Pro critical care ventilator at the automaker’s Kokomo, Ind. plant.


GM and Ventec have a $489.4 million contract from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to deliver 6,132 ventilators to the Strategic National Stockpile by the end of June, with 30,000 shipped by the end of August.


Health providers across the United States and around the world desperately need more life-saving ventilators amid the COVID-19 pandemic. President Donald Trump in late March had HHS order the ventilators under the Korean War-era Defense Production Act, which prioritizes government orders in a time of war or national crisis. The government since then has inked a total nine ventilator contracts worth more than $2.5 billion under the law.


“GM has moved swiftly in Trump time to manufacture one of the most critical lifesaving devices in America’s war against the coronavirus,” Peter Navarro, the White House’s Defense Production Act policy coordinator, said in a GM news release.


The GM and Ventec effort involved sourcing hundreds of parts and assemblies from suppliers, designing a new manufacturing process, transforming GM’s Kokomo factory, the ongoing hiring of more than 1,000 plant workers, and implementing extensive health and safety workplace protocols.


The companies say they will ship more than 600 ventilators this month.
