With the country suffering a severe shortage of beds and oxygen, we managed to secure 300 oxygen concentrators from Poland and China, shipped them to India within 10 days and, working with the government and NGOs, distributed them widely to ease pressure on the healthcare system.

Moreover, colleagues in Ashirvad set about developing an oxygen concentrator in-house, building a prototype in just a few days. Machines were sent out for field testing in May, ahead of commercial production, which started in June.

We also helped our employees, their families and many of our customers get vaccinated early on, as the national vaccination programme got underway. Although some of our operations were shut down for two months, we kept people safe so they could return to work quickly when restrictions eased.
