The Camozzi Group is among the main manufacturing companies of components for the production and operation of lung ventilators around the world. SIARE Engineering requested 20.000 components and 3 types of integrated systems essential for the production of 125 ventilators per week.

Camozzi Group supports the health emergency that has struck the country and especially the Lombardy Region and the Province of Brescia by donating 8 lung ventilators to Spedali Civili and Poliambulanza, the two main hospitals in the city of Brescia mostly involved in assisting the local population affected by the Covid-19 virus.

The donation of 8 ventilators was made possible thanks to the cooperation and supply relationship the Camozzi Group can boast with Siare Engineering, the main manufacturer of ventilators in the country that also produced the 8 instruments donated to the two hospitals in Brescia. Siare Engineering will supply more than 2000 lung ventilators as a priority matter in the coming months, addressed to the Civil Protection Department for different medical facilities all over the country. For this purpose, Camozzi Group received the request from Siare to supply 20.000 components and 3 types of integrated systems. Camozzi Group, through the Camozzi Automation Division, designs and develops components and solutions for the control of fluids for the Life Science sector. The Group produces components and integrated systems for applications using oxygen, just like the ventilators used in the intensive care units The Camozzi components are essential for a proper functioning of those instruments.

Camozzi Automation operates in the Life Science sector for the main world producers – based in the USA, Germany, China, Sweden, UK, Czech Republic and others (including Medtronic, Getinge, Mindray, Aeonmed) - of medical devices, including the lung ventilators that our national facilities are also importing to cope with the sudden and extraordinary need. The Group will continue to manufacture essential components needed to produce lung respirators all over the world, being a key player in the supply chain, ensuring all measures are implemented to protect the workers and continuing to thoroughly observe all the provisions adopted by the Italian Government, the Lombardy region and the governments of other countries where Camozzi production sites are located.

Lodovico Camozzi, President and CEO of the Camozzi Group, said: “In a historical crisis that deeply affected the community of Brescia, we want to be alongside the health-care facilities and their staff with a concrete and quick initiative to support them. I wish to thank everyone who have helped us in this commitment, starting from all our workers for this great sacrifice and our client Siare Engineering that manufactures the ventilators”.

"The initiative of the Camozzi Group is very well-timed" - declares Marco Trivelli, General Manager of the Spedali Civili hospital of Brescia - “as it enhances our therapeutic line of intensive respiratory support, that is essential to cure the most serious patients, by allowing the lungs to rest and giving space to recover their functionality. Moreover, this donation is comforting and encourages all of us to continue our efforts, unprecedented in our history, to face this devious and violent disease, affecting so many people, with all the energy and intelligence in our power”.

"We thank the Camozzi Group for its important support " - declares Alessandro Triboldi, General Manager of the Poliambulanza Foundation - “Having 4 additional respirators for our hospital means saving human lives in this moment of great difficulty. This is of essential help for our operators who work tirelessly every day to always guarantee the best quality of care, which can only be achieved through the use of the right means of support".
