INDIANAPOLIS — A company on the west side of Indianapolis has ramped up production exponentially, serving customers around the world, in the battle against COVID-19. Pulmodyne Inc., which manufactures airway and respiratory medical devices such as masks used in conjunction with ventilators, says it is expanding into an adjacent 7,000-square-foot building, where pre-assembly work will take place.
The company also recently hired 25 temporary workers, bringing its staff to 120 people, and plans to add 50 more production employees to keep up with demand.
"Our devices are designed to avoid intubation,” says Andy Shurig, executive director of Pulmodyne. The company ships products around the globe and saw the rapid spread of the coronavirus even before it hit the U.S. and Indiana.
