Huge shout out to Universal Manufacturers in Kalihi. They volunteered to fabricate all of our 200 covers for our Kahanu ventilators! Not only are they making 200 covers right here in Hawaii, they are covering the costs of the sheet metal.
Here you can see the prototype cover with the acrylic inserts (fabricated and donated by Oceanit). It doesn’t fit perfectly here because this cover is designed for our production model and this is Prototype 1 which has slightly different specs.
We have capacity here to make stuff and Aloha here to kokua.
Universal Manufacturers was established in 1958 right in the heart of Kalihi. It has expanded since then into a fully-equipped metal fabrication shop capable of handling jobs of various sizes, scales, and materials. The business is run family-style, by local, second-generation kama’aina. Our management personnel has over 60 years of continued fabrication experience, which is valuable to ensure efficiency and quality work.
