COVID-19: McLaren supports the Ventilator Challenge UK
During these unprecedented times, McLaren, as part of the Ventilator Challenge UK consortium – a collective of UK major manufacturing, medical and specialist tech and manufacturing companies including UK-based Formula 1 teams – has been working hard to help answer the national need for additional ventilators in response to the COVID-19 crisis. McLaren has been focused on component manufacturing for a ventilator based on existing technologies and is additionally deploying planning, project management and purchasing teams to procure all parts to help ramp-up production.
The contribution is a joint effort from across McLaren Group including McLaren Racing, McLaren Automotive and McLaren Applied. We are delighted to be positively contributing to the efforts to tackle the pandemic alongside the other businesses and F1 teams in the consortium.
