Great US demand for wire forms in medical equipment
Because of the covid19 spread, the demand for medical equipment is very high worldwide. The Lesjöfors company John While Solutions in Singapore has received a large order of a wire form with an important function in life-saving equipment.
The US health care system is under pressure because of the raising cases of covid19. The country is so far the worst affected in the world with more than 2,000,000 infected. To treat the severely ill patients, emergency departments and ICU’s need more advanced medical equipment. The US government has granted funds for purchasing the required equipment.
Rapidly increasing demand
One of the sub suppliers to the medical technology industry is the Lesjöfors company John While Solutions in Singapore. For many years, John While Solutions has supplied a wire form in small quantities for one of the companies that manufactures medical equipment. Already this year because of the covid19 outbreak, John While Solutions has produced many thousands of pieces over and above the shipping in the first quarter of 2020. With a new US government requirement, the number of demanded wire forms will exceed ten times the already delivered items.
Wire forms that meet high medical standards
Roy Loh, Vice President of Lesjöfors Spring Technology in Asia comments on the extended demand:
“We are very happy that we can contribute to fight this pandemic. Our products meet the high standards of the very restricted area of medical equipment and we do our utmost to speed up the production of this particular component and deliver in the requested time frame.”
