Portescap motors support life-critical applications

30 April 2020

COVID-19 is creating an urgent need for critical care equipment such as ventilators and infusion systems, as well as increased requirements for lab analysers.

Portescap is proud to be able to play a critical role during this crucial time. However, more than technical expertise is required in these unprecedented times.

Collaboration, speed, and flexibility are needed as many of us work together to defeat this insidious opponent. These elements are what make Portescap a formidable warrior in the fight against COVID-19. Portescap’s team of engineers are no strangers to working closely with device manufacturers to create customised motion solutions that save lives. 

With its global manufacturing and engineering presence comes an urgent responsibility to mobilise quickly as it uses its expertise, roll up its sleeves, and do its part for the medical community. 

As part of Altra Industrial Motion, Portescap has created a Business Continuity Task Force as well as a Pandemic Response Plan to ensure the safety of its customers as well as that of its employees. 

The Portescap team is hard at work building motors that power ventilators, infusion pumps, clinical diagnostic equipment and many other medical devices used in the fight against COVID-19. 

It is working closely with device manufacturers to reduce the stress on the medical community created by the sudden surge in demand and shortage in supply. 

At the same time, the health and safety of its employees, customers and communities is the company’s top priority. It has been able to mobilise its global teams to help sustain production and fulfilment, while ensuring their safety and health through virtual meetings, workspace distancing and scheduled operational work shift teams in cooperation with the best-practice recommendations from the World Health Organisation (WHO), national health organisations, and other local government agencies. 

We are all in this together. Portescap’s commitment to making motors that improve, enhance and save lives is stronger than ever.
