Hear from Ventec Life Systems CEO Chris Kiple on our progress to build VOCSN critical care ventilators at our Kokomo, IN plant. We are proud to stand with other American companies and our skilled employees to meet the needs of this global pandemic.
As part of our ongoing efforts to support medical professionals on the frontlines of the fight against COVID-19, we are converting our Warren, MI, facility to produce Level 1 surgical masks. This employee-led initiative will begin this week and within weeks allow us to produce 50K masks a day with the potential to scale to more in the future.
In addition to our current workers, we’re looking to hire more production members to assist in the immediate effort to produce VOCSN ventilators at our Kokomo, IN, plant. If you are local to the Kokomo area and interested, apply here:
