London-based JMP Solutions is providing mechanical assembly support for a 10,000-ventilator agreement with the Government of Canada
VEXOS INC., A Markham-based global electronics manufacturing services provider, has signed an agreement with the Government of Canada to manufacture 10,000 Mechanical Ventilator Milano (MVM) units in the national mobilization to combat the Covid-19 pandemic.
To do so, Vexos is working closely with JMP Solutions, a London-based company that specializes in industrial robotics, control systems and systems automation.
The MVM Ventilator, developed by the International MVM Group, is an innovative, simple but powerful ventilator designed to address the specific needs for the care and recovery of severely affected Covid-19 patients. The International MVM Group originated through an international consortium of Italian, U.S. and Canadian physicists, engineers and companies in early March, 2020, working collaboratively across the globe to bring the MVM Ventilator from project initiation to FDA approval in a span of six weeks. Achieving this result in such a short time was made possible thanks to the cooperation of laboratories, institutes, universities and companies mainly across Italy, Canada and the United States, maximizing the benefits that come from sharing skills and resources.

Vexos will build the MVM Ventilator under an exclusive license agreement with Elemaster Group for the Americas (North, Central, and South America).
In a statement released today, Scott Shawyer, president and CEO of JMP Solutions, said, “We are honored to be collaborating with Vexos and the MVM team in the manufacture of the MVM Ventilator to support our national mobilization efforts against the COVID-19 pandemic.”
