Würth Elektronik has announced that it is supplying the PCBs needed for the rapid manufacture of intensive care and mobile ventilators from its three production sites in Germany.

To ensure the supply of medical ventilators for coronavirus patients in Germany, the German government has placed several orders with different manufacturers at short notice.

The company has responded to this request and its plants at Niedernhall, Rot am See and Schopfheim are able to supply all types of PCBs - manufactured in three shifts - from basic technologies to complex HDI printed circuit boards and sophisticated flex-rigid boards.

Würth spokesmen said that, even during the pandemic, its production sites are being maintained with the necessary resources and materials to accept orders for system-relevant products and manufacture them with the utmost care.

In the interest of security and safety, the firm also said that strict protective measures and hygiene regulations were introduced and are being implemented for all employees. These will be adapted as, and when, required.

Commenting Thomas Beck, managing director sales and marketing said, “We are in a position to accept orders at short notice, produce them smoothly and deliver them reliably. As one of the leading PCB manufacturers in Europe, Würth Elektronik CBT thus makes a valuable contribution to securing the supply chain in this medical emergency."
