Taiwanese company in the PH to produce face mask, ventilators and portion will be donated

Taiwan’s New Kinpo Group in the Philippines will produce 1,000 ventilators and 2.5 million face masks to support the country’s efforts to contain the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

New Kinpo's local subsidiary Cal-Comp Technology Philippines, Inc. will produce medical-grade face masks and ventilators exclusively for the Philippines, according to the Board of Investments (BoI).

The company will be modifying its Batangas and Laguna facilities to produce these supplies.

“This is necessary because the supply of raw materials from the usual suppliers from abroad have become very tight as a result of the same issues brought about by COVID-19,” Trade Secretary and BoI Chairman Ramon M. Lopez said.

A “big portion” of the medical supplies will be donated to Philippine hospitals and agencies dealing with the pandemic, the statement said.

“The rest of the masks and ventilators will be available to the Philippine market at very reasonable price points, considering that they will be produced locally,” it added.

Cal-Comp Philippines is an electronics manufacturer employing 7,000 employees in Philippine economic zones.

Lopez thanked the company for its willingness to help the Philippines amid COVID-19 pandemic, reported by businessworld.

  1. It is really good to see. These days disposable mask is more important to go outside. It, at least, saves us from the direct attachment of droplet from sneezing.
