Chinese electric vehicle manufacturer Build Your Dreams has created a large PPE face-mask plant this year. The plant is now running at full capacity and is able to produce 50 million masks per day. This allows BYD to help alleviate severe shortages affecting hospitals and agencies across the globe due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

In late January, BYD began assisting production of masks and disinfection gels to tackle the growing COVID-19 outbreak. A special task force was appointed by BYD Chairman and President Wang Chuanfu, consisting of leaders from different business divisions and more than 3,000 engineers involved in research and development, design, processing and other roles. The task force moved with incredible speed, completing both the R&D and manufacturing process of mask-production equipment within seven days as opposed to the normal length of 15 to 30 days to fully manufacture a mask-producing machine. By February 8, the newly-built production lines in one of BYD’s industrial parks in Shenzhen began producing these critical supplies with hundreds of staff working both day and night shifts, along with machines working around the clock.

BYD Motors LLC announced that it will donate USD 1 million in medical supplies to transit agencies and first responders in the United States and Canada. The supplies include FDA-approved Adult Surgical Masks and KN-95 respiratory protective devices as well as hand sanitizer that is 99.999% effective.
