Dräger N95 Manufacturing Facility
When the COVID-19 pandemic reached the United States in early 2020, N95 masks and many other forms of personal protection equipment quickly became in short supply. Dräger, a German-based company that is an international leader in the fields of medical and safety technology, turned to STV to play a key part in a new manufacturing facility.
STV provided design services to transform a vacant building in Montgomeryville, PA, into a new manufacturing plant that produces thousands of face masks an hour and millions per year. The 46,000-square foot facility contains 10,000 square feet of office space, with approximately 36,000 additional square feet to house state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment. STV coordinated closely with overseas vendors so the building was prepared to receive these machines, in addition to coordinating with Montgomery Township and other local officials over the course of design and construction.
As a crucial component in the fight against COVID-19, this project was fast-tracked and completed within an extraordinarily tight timeline of eight weeks.
