Amid the nationwide cautionary shutdown of many commercial industries, AZCO Corp.  remains in operation designing and building units and machines that help companies produce protective devices for people and manufacture test strips and diagnostic devices. Its modules and units are used to feed, cut, and place products.

“We are part of the supply chain of many machine builders who are considered essential businesses," says Andrew Zucaro, president of AZCO. "We are honored to partner as a critical supplier with companies who are working to accelerate the fight against the COVID-19 virus. We work with manufacturers of medical devices, diagnostics, and treatments for the Coronavirus. We are proud of our team who shows up every day.”

AZCO units employed in the production of medical supplies include cut-to-length units used to produce masks, gowns, and medical gauze and tape, a test strip cutter for diagnostic test strips, and a tubing cutter for medical tubing used in ventilators and other hospital applications.

The company's concept is based on a building block model. Standard modules and units can be purchased alone or in combination to build a custom solution for unique needs. Standard units are in stock and can be customized to fit specific requirements.
