General Motors Co. has begun mass production of the Ventec Life Systems V+Pro critical care ventilator under contract to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, more than 600 ventilators will be shipped this month and the full order will be completed by the end of August.

In less than a month, Ventec, GM’s supply chain and its manufacturing, logistics, legal, and talent acquisition teams were able to marshal support to deliver a 30,000-unit order from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. GM also presented strong sense of urgency from the beginning:

l   GM and Ventec executives had their first conference calls on March 17 and 18 to explore how GM could help Ventec increase ventilator production.

l   The next day, a GM team flew to Seattle to meet with the Ventec team and rolled up their sleeves to help.

l   On March 20, GM engaged its global supply base and within 72 hours, they had developed plans to source 100 percent of the necessary parts.

l   On Wednesday, April 8, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services awarded GM a contract under the Defense Production Act to build 30,000 Ventec V+Pro critical care ventilators.
