Medical technology from NRW in demand

Small and large players from the industry are supplying the whole of Germany with vital accessories for ventilators.

Whether ventilation tubes, filters, connectors or masks: Accessories for ventilators are particularly in demand during the corona pandemic. One of the few manufacturers on the European market is the British company Intersurgical, which has its German headquarters in NRW. From Sankt Augustin, the company is supplying hospitals throughout Germany – demand has almost tripled in a very short time.

Production at the Bielefeld compressed air specialist Boge is also running at full pace. Among other things, the company manufactures compressors that are used in ventilators. The company BIW Isolierstoffe, based in Ennepetal in North Rhine-Westphalia, has converted its production at short notice: The focus is now no longer on the automotive industry, but on medical technology such as silicone tubes for ventilators.
