The Issue

The Nevada Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) and the state-designated Regional Development Authorities (RDAs) are assisting with securing needed medical supplies for the Silver State’s battle against COVID-19.

To help with this process, manufacturers are encouraged to complete the Nevada Manufacturing Survey for Medical Supplies. The purpose of this survey is to provide manufacturers with the opportunity to support our Silver State’s medical needs with production capabilities, inventory, and/or repurposing and/or retooling manufacturing processes to produce Nevada-specific health care in-demand products for fighting COVID-19.

Please scroll down to view the list of Needed Medical Supplies and to connect with Resources who can assist Manufacturers wishing to support the needs of Nevada’s health care industry.

Manufacturing Assistance

Nevada Industry Excellence, the Nevada MEP center and Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE) outreach agency for Nevada Manufacturing, has been asked by GOED to help drive a survey of Nevada Manufacturing in order to understand what capabilities our state manufacturers have to manufacture essential medical products.

Our website has several links to technical specs for ventilators and other documents that are critical for manufacturers during this health crisis.

In addition, through the National MEP network, we can assist our manufacturers with supplier assistance in locating needed raw materials, along with our own program to help match displaced workers with manufacturing companies that need skilled workers.
