When the second wave of the corona hit Pune the entire city of Pune was dealing with a ventilator crisis, a Pune-based startup called “Noccarc” took a step and decided to manufacture ventilators, saving lives of several people. They started the ventilator production process and sold 300 ventilators in the first wave of Corona, and they began selling ventilators to the hospitals again in the second wave.
Nikhil Kurele, co-founder of “Noccarc” said in a recent interview. “There are several possibilities in a population of 1.3 billion people. “Over 50 days, the team delivered about 2,700 ventilators to Pune’s Covid Care centers. Although Noccarc is not a ventilator manufacturer, and the team had never seen a ventilator before deciding to make one. They were able to construct it, though, because of their experience with control motors. Noccarc is a tech business that intends to provide people affordable solar panel cleaning products.
It was formed by alumni of IIT Kanpur Nikhil Kurele and Harshit Rathore in 2017 and has since worked to provide beneficial solutions to various corporate industries. Noccarc’s co-founder, Nikhil Kurele, hails from Shahdol, Madhya Pradesh, while Rathore is from Kanpur. They are both buddies who were interested in beginning a new startup manufacturing solar panel cleaning products, and they soon acquired finances to launch their venture in Pune.
In April 2021, Pune was facing a shortage of ventilators, resulting in a significant increase in the death of Covid patients. In such a situation, by delivering ventilators to hospitals and Covid care centers, the company was able to relieve the situation. Kurele and his colleagues did an outstanding job, as several persons were saved as a result of their efforts. To save more lives in the third wave, the business is now developing a new range of ventilators. “People believed they had been ready for the second wave, but when it arrived, it worsened the situation,” Kurele says. “Our new range of ventilators will be released soon.” We are trying to make healthcare more affordable”.
The company has also launched a 24-hour customer service center for clients to receive and resolve product-related issues from doctors and hospitals. The effort of these two dynamic tech entrepreneurs is praised across the country, and we hope that more startups like them will emerge to assist people in this Pandemic era.
