Our customer, part of the VentilatorChallengeUK consortium, is producing 5,000 medical ventilators by the end of May, and another 8,000 by the end of June.

The first ventilator came off the production line on Monday 27 April.

Rubix UK supported the consortium across four production lines and two sites, ensuring the necessary consumables were in place before manufacturing started.

Specifically, we provided products ranging from specialist chairs for the engineers through to PPE and bespoke torque gauges that were air freighted from the USA.

We also established a regular replenishment cycle to ensure the right products are available throughout production.
