World and U.S. health officials alike are warning of risks to the medical supply chain from COVID-19. As the world becomes increasingly connected and the spread of COVID-19 worsens, it is important for customers to consider which companies have US based supply chain networks that can readily fulfill their demand.
The impact on manufacturing and production in mainland China, southeastern Asian, Europe and other countries due to COVID-19 have been insurmountable. According to the FDA 63 manufacturers which represent 72 facilities in China that produce essential medical devices are affected. Distribution of essential medical device technology is now experiencing major delays in shipping and production.
With that taken into account, MDPro & Edan USA, which have US-based warehouses and distribution, remain relatively unaffected by the supply for medical devices. MDpro currently stocks tens and thousands of medical products here in California, and has a distribution network of over 100 distributors across the United States. This allows for U.S. dealers to forgo challenges in dealing with international manufacturers during the pandemic.
We are dedicated to staying open to provide for the needs of hospitals in the U.S. The healthcare system has the possibility to be overwhelmed if the spread grows exponentially. We are prepared to offer expedited shipping from our U.S. warehouses to help ease that pressure and tension. When times are tough we are here to provide you with the essential medical equipment needed for a low cost. We are currently stocked well with patient monitors, vital sign monitors, EKG machines, spirometers and so much more. Together, we can beat this.
