GM and Ventec Life Systems recently entered a partnership to drastically increase the production of Ventilators, which can alleviate the burden on undersupplied healthcare systems during the outbreak of COVID-19. The partnership between GM and Ventec Life Systems is part of an overarching effort undertaken by StopTheSpread.org, which is a collective of private companies addressing the issue of the COVID-19 outbreak.
The partnership dictates that Ventec will utilize the logistics, purchasing and manufacturing capabilities of GM. However, no exact production goals or timelines were released. However, the ability to utilize GM's capacity would greatly improve the production of ventilators.
Mary Barra, the GM Chairmen, and CEO spoke about the partnership, “We will continue to explore ways to help in this time of crisis."
