Repurposing manufacturing lines for providing medical and other products and services in case of spiking demand times

Necessity is the mother of invention

The ongoing COVID-19 crisis has shown that several types of PPE and medical equipment are crucial, including the ability to deploy them rapidly. Because of cost factors, these products, or at least critical components for them, are often produced outside the EU. Once things normalize, there will be a large pressure to return to that situation.

Therefore, it is a real challenge to set up a concept, methodology and practical supply chain, especially since for large scale manufacturing one needs tapping into existing lines at commercial companies.
