Project Diamond, an acronym for Distributed, Independent Agile Manufacturing on Demand, is bringing together hundreds of businesses across Oakland and Macomb Counties to save lives in Ukraine.

Ukraine’s Defense Ministry has stated that it needed parts to make tourniquets for war injuries, and Project Diamond saw the call as an opportunity to build its network.

The goal for each company involved with the project is to produce an average of 50 clips so 15,000 can be sent to Denmark to be assembled into tourniquets to be sent to war zones in Ukraine.
