Seat - From making cars to ventilators

SEAT is collaborating with the healthcare system by making automated ventilators with adapted windscreen wiper motors. 150 employees from several areas of the company have worked for a week on the definitive model after designing 13 prototypes. A ventilator is currently undergoing prolonged testing as part of the approval process. The SEAT Leon line at the Martorell plant is almost unrecognisable. Today, cars are no longer being made; instead, automated ventilators are being produced to collaborate with the healthcare system in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis. Going from producing cars to ventilators in record time is the result of the intense work of many SEAT employees and a very powerful driving force: solidarity. “The motivation of everyone participating in this project is that with our know-how we can mass-produce equipment that will save lives”, explains Nicolás Mora from the Production area of SEAT Martorell.
