Supporting Fight Against COVID-19

Apr 09 2020

Smiths Interconnect is proud to be collaborating with leading medical technology organizations around the world to combat the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. 

We’ve long been a trusted partner to key ventilator manufacturers providing high reliability connectors renowned for their durability and unfaltering performance in critical environments.

As a global organization with design and manufacturing locations in North Africa, APAC, the Americas and Europe, we recognize foremost the necessity of working across nationalities, time zones and cultures.  It is at the forefront of our operating model and at the heart of how we support our customers in times of crisis.

While governments around the globe increasingly appeal for quick delivery of even more life-saving ventilators, Interconnect is hard at work producing the connectivity solutions needed to ensure this urgent need is addressed.

Currently our teams in Asia, the Americas and Europe are supporting programs to deliver connectors for ventilator production and delivery within those regions. These are products we’ve provided for many years including among others:
