Ford is known for having some of the most capable factories and workers in North America. Now, that amazing capacity is being put for good use to fight the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of Ford's experienced workers have repurposed the factories to help build personal protective equipment and other critical resources for health care workers in Seminole, OK and beyond.

Ramping Up Ventilator Manufacturing

The Ford plant in Ypsilanti, Michigan, is one of the leading producers of life-saving ventilators. These ventilators are for patients who are unable to breathe on their own easily. With the country facing massive shortfalls in ventilators, these pieces of equipment will help save the lives of people across the country. Thanks to the Ford plant's incredible capacity, thousands of ventilators will be produced per month.

Creating Reusable Hospital Gowns

One of the biggest challenges facing our health care workers is the ability to have quality personal protective equipment for themselves and their patients. Ford is answering the call by producing high-quality reusable gowns from airbag materials. These gowns protect the entire body from airborne diseases.

Donating Face Shields To Save Lives

One of the most important pieces of hospital equipment needed in the COVID-19 pandemic is face shields. With a face shield, a medical worker will be able to interact with a patient without fear of viral transmission. To help healthcare workers get the face shields that they need, Ford is donating up to 15,000 face shields to hospitals across the country. These face shields are the highest standards from Ford's most advanced manufacturing equipment.

More Protective Equipment Created By Ford Across The Country

While the COVID-19 pandemic continues to challenge the country, Ford remains committed to repurposing their factories and their personnel to manufacture as much personal protective equipment as possible, including everything from facemasks to gloves. This high level of quick mobilization has allowed Ford to help thousands of hospitals across the country.
