Standard Motor Products Gives Back
May 4, 2020—Standard Motor Products (SMP) has joined in the fight against COVID-19, according to two press releases.
According to one of the releases, the company announced that its Temperature Control Division has delivered heat exchangers suitable for oxygen concentrators and oxygen generators, which are key components used in the production of medical ventilators.
With the recent high demand for oxygen and ventilating equipment due to the COVID-19 pandemic, SMP received an emergency request to deliver 1000 units this month. Because the factory maintains and manufactures to the strict standards and controls required for medical applications, SMP employees were able to turn around the needed units and expedite them to California.
According to the second release, SMP has also donated $1,000 worth of healthy snacks to Mount Sinai Queens Hospital in Astoria, N.Y., during the month of April. SMP was able to set up weekly deliveries to Mount Sinai Queens Hospital to help them stock their café, which allowed the hospital to extend the afternoon hours of their free café, which is open to all Mount Sinai Queens staff.
