Salvation is in Cordoba

We tell you the story of the only respirator factory in Argentina: TECME S. A., located in Cordoba. What is your current situation.

Business and Enterprises

 The company TECME S. A.  today is the solution and salvation of the whole country  . It is located on the Cordoba ring road and is the  only supplier  of respirators  in Argentina . Their production, in general, is aimed at export, but they are also national heroes. They have more than a century of experience in  medical technology development. And they sell 80% of their production to  more than 50 countries . Also 85% of national therapies have their products.

That is why,  in this   health emergency , Minister of Health Ginés González García contacted this industry. Since, being the only suppliers, TECME S. A. is committed to supplying the province with the necessary inputs.

Faced with the advancement of the coronavirus, TECME S. A. is responsible for disseminating manuals for disinfection and maintenance of equipment distributed in different countries. It is  a multinational,  with offices in Buenos Aires and USA, but whose production center is  located in Córdoba Capital.  TECME S. A. does not stop growing. It is a company that not only produces inputs, but also constantly conducts research to improve the quality of the technologies used.

The innovations  in medical equipment  generated by this company are recurring. Since 1966 they are committed to life, developing high-quality medical technology.

 A little bit of history 

The current president of the company is  Dr. Ernesto P. Mañá,  chest surgeon. And the vice president is  Luis R. Mañá , an engineering student who in 1966 encouraged to accompany his brother in an investigation. These men, entrepreneurs, intelligent and visionary, managed to develop mechanical respirators. The main objective was to assist pulmonary ventilation in patients with different types of respiratory failure. And they succeeded, and even positioned themselves as a  leading company in this field. 

The Mañá brothers became the saviors of many people. As they supply the vast majority of hospitals in the country and, in addition, export their products.With the  first prototyping experiments  on animals, in order to improve the project of developing a respirator suitable for humans, the first model was reached. In 1966,  the first trial of a prototype in a human patient was successfully conducted.  He was in the Surgery Service of the Chair of Thisiology and Chest Diseases of the  National University of Córdoba.  And from then on, the company managed to save millions of lives and consolidate itself in the market with its new models, increasingly technological and efficient. Today, with a pandemic like COVID-19, having  such a caliber company   saves us all.
