VentilatorChallengeUK Consortium

A consortium of significant UK industrial, technology and engineering businesses from across the aerospace, automotive and medical sectors, has come together to produce medical ventilators for the UK.


The VentilatorChallengeUK Consortium is led by Dick Elsy, CEO of High Value Manufacturing Catapult, a group of manufacturing research centres in the UK.


Companies in the consortium have now received formal orders from the Government for in excess of 15,000 units.


The consortium will now accelerate production of two agreed designs, based on existing technologies, which can be assembled from materials and parts in current production.  


The VentilatorChallengeUK consortium is committed to playing its role in delivering both medical ventilator designs to the required specifications and, in conjunction with these other companies, organisations and groups, aid the delivery of additional ventilators to the NHS. The companies involved have taken many of their people from key company projects to do this and serve the national need.


Companies involved include:
