“ASAP… one week.” Those were the words Capco Crane & Hoist Inc. heard when they received a call from longtime customer Nypro Medical.
A manufacturer of medical equipment, Nypro Medical asked Capco to “produce a freestanding crane system in record time” for their plant in the Boston MetroWest area location. “They want to set up a room, ASAP, to produce ventilators for hospitals,” says Capco management.
With the outbreak of COVID-19 spreading across the world and threatening to shake our economy and the health of our citizens, material handling companies like Capco Crane & Hoist Inc., which specializes in overhead material handling systems, are being called on in a time of great need. The United States alone has reported thousands hospitalized with COVID-19 and our healthcare systems are experiencing a shortage of supplies.
Given these unprecedented times, Capco Crane & Hoist understood that they must act fast.
“Speed is the key, they want a crane system that would normally be [finished in] about 12-14 weeks, but they want it designed, fabricated and installed in ONE week,” says Capco management.
Capco Crane & Hoist Inc. was asked to put everything aside to make this happen and without hesitation they said yes. Capco Crane & Hoist Inc. immediately sprang into action, ready to work 24/7 to get this done, not only to aid Nypro Medical, but to help the people that are in desperate need of ventilators.
“We feel it is essential to [be] helping them build the ventilators we all need, we are proud to do our part and we are capable of doing this!” adds Capco management.
Capco Crane & Hoist Inc. would like to give a shout out to their team working tirelessly around the clock this week. Jim Couturier, is Head Engineer and project lead. Tony Caputo, President at Capco Crane & Hoist Inc. will be vital at keeping other projects running to free up manpower.
