Gtech (Grey Technology Ltd.) is an independent British company that designs and manufactures technology solutions. The company is headquartered in and was founded in Spetchley, Worcestershire, United Kingdom.
The company designs and produces machines and products for floor-care, garden, electric bikes, and massage purposes. Their floor-care range includes cordless vacuums and power sweepers. For gardens they offer cordless power tools, such as chainsaws and weed-whackers. Their E-bike range is designed to make biking an easier task.
In response to the outbreak of COVID-19 (coronavirus), Gtech has been asked by the United Kingdom's government to produce ventilators to help severe case patients who can no longer breathe on their own.
The company has been asked to build up to 30,000 ventilators within two-weeks of the order (late March). They have responded by providing designs to external communities and companies to ramp up production elsewhere as well, claiming the goal should be to produce over 1,000 units per day.
