Tarik Yousef, the owner of T.Y. Fine Furniture, found himself in a unique position once the COVID-19 pandemic hit. Through his company, he was already working with some of the necessary equipment to create ventilators. He knew that the need for ventilators would only increase, not only in the US but worldwide. So to get the ball rolling, Tarik posted on Facebook his intention to start the process to manufacture ventilators. He wanted others to know he needed help and that they could join the cause. Currently, the team consists of several colleagues and long-time friends that include Liz Stump, Amanat Ahmed, and Eduardo Suarez.
