E2IP TECHNOLOGIES mandated by CAE to help deliver critical ventilator initiative
Montreal, Canada, July 9, 2020
e2ip technologies is proud to be one of CAE’s suppliers in the manufacturing of the CAE Air1™ ventilator destined to be used in the fight against COVID-19 throughout Canada.
e2ip will be building the mechanical parts of the ventilator from one of its ISO 13485 certified facilities in Montreal which relies on a specialized workforce of 200 employees supporting primary care electronic device design and manufacturing for global medical industry leaders.
“e2ip is a trusted partner in the design and manufacturing of human machine interface solutions for insulin pumps, hospital beds, infusion pumps, and many other primary care medical devices. We are proud to now be working with CAE on the Air1™ ventilator, a critical initiative for communities across Canada,” said Steve Birrell, Chief Commercial Officer for e2ip technologies.
“e2ip was quick to respond to global call for action to address COVID-19 challenges,” said Eric Saint-Jacques, CEO of e2ip technologies. e2ip plants in Montreal, Minnesota and Casablanca, all required to support global medical industry demand, remained at full capacity. Manufacturing operations increased and production lines were reconfigured to produce face shields for communities and governments across North America. Several disruptive innovations were also developed both by the company’s industry leading R&D team, and in partnership with the National Research Council of Canada, which will add further depth to the company’s broad portfolio of printed electronics intellectual property.
“This project with CAE, and our overall response to the COVID-19 pandemic, speak to e2ip’s core pillars of Innovation, Partnership, Operational Excellence and Talent,” said M. Saint-Jacques. “We also look forward to further developing our footprint in the global Aerospace market, a market in which we are recognized as a technology and innovation leader, through the integration of our printed electronics technology IP.”
CAE is a global leader in training for the civil aviation, defence and security, and healthcare markets. CAE designed the CAE Air1™ ventilator as a humanitarian response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Government of Canada mandated CAE to manufacture and supply 10,000 ventilators to support Intensive Care Units patients treated for COVID-19. The CAE Air1™ ventilator was the first entirely new ventilator to be certified by Health Canada since the beginning of the pandemic.
