Honda is lending a helping hand to those in need. The carmaker has started manufacturing and delivery vital parts for ventilators to Dynaflo Inc. of Reading, Pennsylvania. These Honda ventilator parts help Dynaflo produce their diaphragm compressors, which are a key component of portable ventilators, which are used in hospitals and by first responders throughout the United States.
Honda and Dynaflo have set a goal to produce 10,000 compressors per month when production reaches capacity, and will continue to do so through the end of August.
“Honda associates have successfully transformed a portion of our technical training center into an assembly line that will help support the urgent need to produce ventilator components,” said Rick Schostek, Executive Vice President, Honda North America, Inc. “With our supply of these key components to Dynaflo, we hope to help address one of the most pressing needs within the COVID-19 crisis.”
The production team for these parts has transformed 6,000 sq ft of the brand’s Technical Development Center in Marysville, Ohio, utilizing their production know-how to quickly ramp up production over the first few weeks. Honda associates are also working closely with Dynaflo personnel to ensure best practices in compressor assembly, allowing them to build and quality test the devices before they are shipped.
Thanks to Honda, thousands of first responders were able to get the ventilators they needed. If what you need is a car, though, then you should head on to Avery Greene Honda!
