Ventilators and more. Viessmann is converting production during the crisis.
Times of crisis call for especially creative solutions and innovative approaches. This is currently being demonstrated by Viessmann, a company based in the state of Hesse which has been respected in the design industry for decades and is known most of all for its heating technology solutions that are present in many households. An initiative of its staff has resulted in a partial conversion of its production capabilities. The family business is now also manufacturing ventilators, mobile medical-treatment units, face masks and disinfectants alongside climate and energy solutions. “It goes without saying that we are aware of our social responsibility in times of crisis and will now strengthen it once more. The overall situation will only come to an end once it has ended for each person – all around the world,” says Co-CEO Max Viessmann. The ventilators are being developed in close coordination with the medical professionals at Luisenhospital, the Faculty of Medicine at RWTH Aachen University and other hospitals in order to gain a special approval as swiftly as possible. If that happens, production of more than 600 pieces per day would be possible. According to Viessmann, the ventilators enable individual settings for the pressure level and breathing rate and allow a variable mixture with oxygen.
