Local Businessman answers call from Rep. Kevin Brady to help manufacturer life-saving equipment

MAGNOLIA- On Monday Bison ProFab, Inc received word from State Rep. Kevin Brady's office that there was a critical shortage and an urgent need for more ventilators in the United States.

Since 1996 Bison ProFab, Inc. has been producing industrial enclosures domestically as well as internationally and immediately committed to join this effort.

Jake Kelly, General Counsel for Bison said that he credits the employees for working together and following the instructions for social distancing to battle this global pandemic.

"As we're deemed an essential business and critical to the supply chain, Bison will remain open and continue to serve," said Kelly.

"Right now, it's all hands on deck," and we understand that COVID-19 is quickly creating a dramatic shortage of ventilators in our nation," said Kelly. "That is why Bison is committed to following the governor's employee safety mandates while continuing to do our part for the greater good."

President Donald Trump declared on Wednesday that he will invoke the Defense Production Act, which grants him the authority to force companies to produce medical supplies needed to handle the coronavirus.

The Department of Defense also said it will give 5 million respirator masks and 2,000 ventilators to the Department of Health and Human Services. Secretary of Defense Mark Esper said that "the first 1 million masks will be made available immediately."

In addition to signing the DPA, Trump plans to deploy two Navy hospital ships to assist cities affected by the outbreak, with the U.S. Naval Ship Comfort — which has 1,000 hospital beds — headed to New York.
