Companies Offering Ventilator Circuits and Accessories
ProcurementIQ provides a list of vendors offering ventilator circuits and accessories
MO-based Allied Healthcare Products, Inc. is a respiratory device and ventilator accessory manufacturer. The company’s CEO Earl Refsland stated that the company produces 1,000 ventilators annually and that it would be at least eight months to increase production.
CT-based Bio-Med Devices Inc. is a manufacturer of transportable respirators/ventilators, reusable breathing circuits and related accessories. Buyers are likely to have a hard time procuring breathing circuits from Bio-Med Devices because customer service representatives stated they have to prioritize government contracts and have turned down some orders in the context of unprecedented demand. Furthermore, Bio-Med has a lower production capacity compared to alternative suppliers as evident of their commitment to give 100 ventilators to the State of Connecticut.
Drägerwerk AG (Drager) is a German conglomerate that manufacturers ventilation and respiratory monitoring equipment and accessories. Drager doubled production volume in February 2020 and has made public the company’s goal to quadruple ventilator related production by June 2020. Drager’s American production facilities are located in Houston, Texas and Telford, Pennsylvania. Customer service representatives stated they have limited supply of ventilator circuits and accessories at this time but advised putting in the orders soon because the earliest scheduled stock date was June 2020. Buyers wanting to order products, receive pricing or check inventory levels must establish an account with Drager. Therefore, when conducting outreach with this vendor, buyers should leverage a specific existing relationship (i.e. a specific medical facility that maintains an existing account with Drager) in order to yield accurate representations of inventories and to submit purchase orders.
Fisher & Paykel Healthcare Corporation Limited is a leading designer, manufacturer and marketer of products and systems for use in respiratory care based out of New Zealand. The company’s closest manufacturing facility is located in Tijuana, Mexico and is responsible for about 30.0% of the company’s total volume. Furthermore, this facility accounts for approximately 50.0% of all products sold in the United States.
Flexicare Medical Limited https://www.flexicare.com/ United Kingdom-based Flexicare Medical Limited is a manufacturer of ventilator breathing systems and accessories with manufacturing facilities located domestically in Irvine, California. A warehouse manager confirmed they had some levels of inventory of ventilator accessories at around 4:30PM PST on March 27, 2020. The manager suggested reaching out to Jaclyn Riley (714-747-7181; email@example.com) for more product information.
Hamilton Medical is a Swiss subsidiary of US biotech company Hamilton that specializes in adult, pediatric and neonatal intelligent ventilation solutions. The company doubled its production capacity by 50.0% in March 2020 and announced the goal to double its April production capacity to around 4,000 to 5,000 ventilators and related accessories per month. These manufacturing figures refer to production taking place outside of Switzerland, in China and to a lesser extent, the United States.
International Control Services Inc. is a medical device manufacturer with facilities located in Decatur, Illinois. The company announced it is increasing production of ventilator circuits and currently working to fill an order of 5,000 placed by the State of New York. The company is reportedly hiring 70 people to meet increased demand.
Medtronic plc is a leading medical device manufacturer that produces ventilator and related accessories in Minneapolis, Minnesota but is based out of Ireland for tax-purposes. The company announced in March 2020 it had increased ventilator and related accessories (i.e. ventilator circuits) production by more than 40.0%, putting Medtronic on track to more than double its supply capacity. In late March, Medtronic publicly released all the schematics and software required to build a portable ventilator and authorized any entity to use these blueprints to manufacture the devices.
Philips Electronics has made public its goal to double its ventilator and related accessories output to 2,000 units per week in the next eight weeks to mid-May 2020. However, Philips poses a greater supply chain risk because many vital inputs (e.g. circuit boards) are made in China and the Netherlands has ordered 2,000 respirators from Philips. Furthermore, a long time Philip’s supplier reported that the Pittsburgh production line was shut down for several days because of a lack of circuit board. Philips would be able to offer the United States a larger supply of ventilators and equipment in the event the Trump Administration uses the Defense Production Act to limit the export of ventilator products back to the Netherlands and Europe.
CA-based company ResMed Corp. is manufacturer of sleep apnea machines and ventilators for hospital and home use. The company has announced they will be doubling and eventually tripling production of hospital ventilators and accessories. Some production lines at factories in Singapore and Australia have switched away from sleep apnea devices to make ventilators.
IL-based company Vyaire Medical Inc. is a manufacturer of respiratory care devices and related accessories. Vyaire operates a manufacturing plant in Palm Springs, CA where it produces several ventilator models. However, Vyaire produces “consumables” such as masks and ventilator circuits at a manufacturing facility in Mexicali.
GE Healthcare credits its partnership with Ford Motor Company for the company’s ability to increase production capacity of ventilators and related equipment (i.e. ventilator circuits) to meet unprecedented demand.
Tesla Inc. is delivering the first batch of donated ventilator machines and accessories to New York City on April 3, 2020.
General Motors (GM) has been ordered by the Trump Administration to begin building ventilators and ventilator circuits as they invoke the Defense Production Act. GM and its partner Ventec Inc. are working out of the Kokomo, Indiana GM plant.
