Crescent fasteners for ventilators

Crescent Manufacturing Aid In The Fight Against COVID-19

Crescent is an integral part of the Ford/GE HealthCare supply chain.

Crescent Manufacturing is producing 800,000 brass fasteners for ventilators in the fight against COVID-19

Global Fastener NewsFord/GE reached out to their supply chain to look for help in making these ventilator machines. Crescent Manufacturing, being one of their suppliers has received specs for the fasteners needed for these intricate machines.  And now we are producing the much-needed fasteners.

There was a great article describing this healthcare supply chain in the “Wall Street Journal” on April 12, 2020. Subscribers to the WSJ can read “Auto Giants Trade Drills for Tweezers in Bid to Rush Coronavirus Ventilators” By Mike Colias.

The Crescent team responsible for making these parts is pictured above. From left to right: Erik, Threading; Edgar, Heading; and Shawn, Shipping. (Note: our employees are following Connecticut’s social distancing protocol but they removed their masks for this photo op).
