The company’s plant in Asia will produce medical masks necessary to combat the spread of coronavirus.

Due to the difficult situation with the coronavirus pandemic, one of the Asian companies in the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) concern will master a new production of medical masks. This was reported by Reuters referring to FCA Executive Director Mike Manley. The planned production volumes are impressive: about a million protective masks every month! This is not the only step the company has taken to combat COVID-19.

Thus, FCA, together with Ferrari, is currently negotiating with a leading Italian manufacturer of mechanical ventilation apparatus (IVL), which is so necessary for doctors.

We are talking about an almost twofold increase in the production of such vital devices.

 In addition, the Leasys rental company, owned by FCA Bank, will give the Italian Red Cross and the local nonprofit volunteer association ANPAS access to a fleet of 300 Fiat and Jeep cars, as well as provide them with five bio-insulated ambulances based on the Ducato van. Of course, for free. Cars will deliver food and medicine throughout the country. Also with their help organize the transportation of pensioners.
