US demand for wire forms in medical equipment 26 August 2020

Singapore-based John While Solutions Pte Ltd, a Lesjöfors company, has received a large order for wire forms used in life saving equipment, as the demand for medical equipment increases worldwide due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

The US health care system is currently under pressure because of the rising number of Covid-19 cases. To treat the severely ill patients, emergency departments and ICU’s need more advanced medical equipment, and as a result the US government has granted funds for purchasing the required equipment.

For many years John While Solutions has supplied a wire form in small quantities to one of the companies manufacturing this particular medical equipment. This year it has already produced many thousands of pieces over and above the shipping in the first quarter of 2020, and with the growing demand, it is expected the number of wire forms will exceed ten times the already delivered items.

“We are very happy that we can contribute to fight this pandemic, with our products meeting the high standards of the very restricted area of medical equipment. We are therefore doing our utmost to speed up the production of this particular component and deliver in the requested time frame,” commented Roy Loh, vice-president of Lesjöfors spring technology in Asia.
