Default Manufacturing for covid 19 response

I thought I would start a thread to let people know about manufacturing during this pandemic.
We have been making ventilator parts for several years. The last few weeks we have received several orders. The order states they are for the national emergency supply of ventilators and is subect to the defense production act invoked by the president.. Our normal lead times of 5-6 weeks have been reduced to just a few days. These go to the very front and our best people work on them and hand carry them to managers for expediting. Our vendors have been very helpful too.
It is important to understand that this type of manufacturing is essential. Our people take it very seriously and have responded well to increased workload and shortened timelines.

We make ventilator assemblies for an OEM. They want 2 years worth of units over the next 1.5 months. Surprisingly, almost all of the component suppliers are keeping up. One of them who makes special fittings was falling behind, but yesterday they put all non-vent related orders to the side until further notice. Everyone is on board and focused on a common goal. Itís great to see

This makes so much more sense than trying to get companies who don't make these parts start doing it. It would take them forever to get to where you guys already are. Our country's focus should be on making sure current manufacturers have what they need to increase production. Thanks for what you're doing.

This is awesome! Curious as to the % increase in production you folks are making happen.
A 16 fold increase (Stripedo) is impressive!

Thanks for what you are doing to help save lives. I know money isn't your motivation for ramping things up, but I hope our government rewards you greatly for the extra work. I would definitely rather see you guys get a big chunk than some undeserving campaign contributor on wall street.

unless we had an innovative company such as Dyson that not only began manufacturing but redesigned the ventilator in 10 days.

Hope you guys are duly rewarded with good overtime pay and big bonuses!

I service paper, steel, and aluminum mills. Some of them have postponed work, but a lot haven't. Gotta keep pumping out cardboard for Amazon!

In the last 2 weeks we shipped 6 months worth of orders. We are very ahead of other portions of the supply chain and I intend to keep it that way. I am the GM of this company.
With regards to pricing, we have not changed the price. As a manufacturer that takes raw materials and makes parts from them a big portion of our cost is the setup. We have stripped other jobs out and set the emergency orders up. Our normal lead time is based on the workload of the particular equipment when the PO is received. In this case, the orders that we were processing will need to be reset. Technically we can charge for this based on current emergency rules but we wont.
We all need to do our part and we are very happy to be working.
I truly feel for all of the out of work folks. We will do our best to help by supplying and prioritizing whatever is requested.

Epitomizes American ingenuity and resolve to overcome IMO. Refreshing.

Did that happen? If so, wouldn't that indeed be an accomplishment.
