Karachi based mechanical company to manufacture ventilators

  • The development was shared by Federal Minister for Science and Technology Chaudhry Fawad Hussain in a tweet post.
02 Sep 2020

The Drug Regulatory Authority of Pakistan (DRAP) has approved the second company for the production of ventilators, as the country seeks to make itself self-sufficient in the manufacturing of PPEs and other related equipment required to curb the COVID pandemic.

The regulator has approved the ventilator design from Alsons, a Karachi based group specializing in the manufacturing of mechanical components (from bars, plates, forgings, and castings), CNC plastic injection molding, stamping, and assemblies in the fields of hi-tech engineering, aerospace, automotive, oil & gas, and power sector.

The development was shared by Federal Minister for Science and Technology Chaudhry Fawad Hussain in a tweet post. “One more production line and Pak will allow export of ventilators,” said the federal minister while congratulating the company for its achievement.

Back in July, the National Radio and Telecommunication Corporation (NRTC) became the first organization in Pakistan to indigenously developed and started local manufacturing of “SafeVent SP100”.

As per details, portable ventilator SafeVent SP 100 is FDA/CE approved economical and reliable ventilator. The NRTC has a production capacity to manufacture 250 –300 units per month, and it also handed over the first batch of its domestically produced ventilators to National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA).
