JMP Solutions has partnered with Vexos Inc. to fulfill a contract for the production of 10,000 ventilators for use in Canada.
JMP Solutions, a systems integrator and engineering services provider based in London, Ontario, is part of Ventilators for Canadians, a consortium of manufacturers and solutions providers working to ensure Canada is equipped with sufficient supply of ventilators to aid in the fight against COVID-19.
Ventilators for Canadians was borne out of the need to quickly develop an agile team of industry professionals with complementary skills, technical expertise and access to fit-for-purpose supply chains and manufacturing environments.
As part of the Ventilators for Canadians consortium, JMP has been working with an international team of scientists and engineers from Canada, Italy and the United States named the MVM (Mechanical Ventilator Milano) Collaboration, the team responsible for the product engineering, design and testing of the MVM Ventilator.
The global team has been able to bring the MVM Ventilator from concept to FDA approval in a span of six weeks.
The team is now preparing to submit for Health Canada approval under the provisions of the Interim Order in regard to medical devices for use in relation to COVID-19.
Vexos Inc., an electronics manufacturing services provider based in Markham, Ontario, is also a member of the MVM Collaboration and has recently received a contract from the federal government to manufacture 10,000 MVM Ventilators.
JMP Solutions has partnered with Vexos to manufacture the mechanical sub-assembly, which will then be sent to Vexos for electrical assembly and testing.
“We feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to step-up and do our part to support our fellow Canadians during this crisis,” says Scott Shawyer, president and CEO of JMP Solutions.
“I would like to give a heartfelt thank you to the entire MVM Collaboration, the team at Vexos, everyone who has contributed to Ventilators for Canadians, and my team at JMP. One day we will all be very proud of all we have accomplished in such a short period of time.”
