The precision compressor, made with German technology, has a service life of over 30,000 hours. The model has a large top handle that makes it easy to transport.
Under the Wistron WeCare CSR Program, the company has already distributed 1000 face shields and 10000 masks to the district police. Apart from the oxygen concentrators that were handed over today, a high-capacity oxygen generator plant will be installed in one of the taluk hospitals, thousands of health kits to employees and their families and hundreds of food ration kits and health kits to the poor and the marginalized from in and around the factory to be distributed, among others.
Wistron, as part of the commitment to the community, has launched the month-long CSR program to extend support and relief as well as improve the healthcare infrastructure and resource availability in the society, and will further expand the efforts as the need arises.
Handing over the oxygen concentrators as part of the CSR program, Wistron Infocomm Manufacturing India Managing Director Nagaraj M said there is a huge pressure on the healthcare infrastructure, and the district administration is doing its best to manage the same.
“Oxygen supply is being ramped up and as part of our CSR program, we decided to extend our support as well. We will be installing an oxygen generator plant as well very soon in a taluk hospital as suggested by the administration. We at Wistron would like to sincerely thank and appreciate all the frontline workers who are selflessly working day and night to take care of the affected as well as control the pandemic,” said Nagaraj M.
Nagaraj M also said Wistron is sure that these oxygen concentrators offer some assistance and relief in these efforts and the company plans to launch more initiatives over the next couple of weeks.
