(WSYR-TV) — A company with strong ties to Upstate New York is working to mass produce ventilators.

Xerox is working with Vortran Medical Technology to produce up to one million ventilators over the coming months.

The Go-2-Vent is not a replacement for standard ICU ventilators, but are helpful for patients who either don’t yet need that level of care or are coming off a ventilator.

Xerox announced that the company will produce the devices at its facility outside of Rochester, while Vortran continues to make them in Sacramento, California.
