US demand for wire forms in medical equipment 25 June 2020

The demand for medical equipment is very high worldwide due to the ongoing situation regarding Covid-19. Singapore-based John While Solutions Pte Ltd, a Lesjöfors company, has received a large order for wire forms used in life-saving equipment.

The US health care system is currently under pressure because of the rising number of Covid-19 cases. To treat the severely ill patients, emergency departments and ICU’s need more advanced medical equipment. The US government has granted funds for purchasing the required equipment.

For many years John While Solutions has supplied a wire form in small quantities for one of the companies that manufactures medical equipment. This year it has already produced many thousands of pieces over and above the shipping in the first quarter of 2020, and with the growing demand, it is expected that the number of wire forms will exceed ten times the already delivered items.

Roy Loh, vice-president of Lesjöfors spring technology in Asia comments - “We are very happy that we can contribute to fight this pandemic. Our products meet the high standards of the very restricted area of medical equipment and we do our utmost to speed up the production of this particular component and deliver in the requested time frame.”
