Vonco Products, a leader in contract manufacturing of liquid-tight medical fluid bags and components for custom medical device applications, has expanded production at its manufacturing center in Trevor, Wisconsin. The company is adding to its workforce and pivoting to produce desperately needed PPE in addition to its existing lineup of infection prevention products.
Officials at Vonco said the company, which provides custom design “for the craziest of bags with unique shapes, fitment insertions and assembly of unsupported or laminated films,” launched new products to meet the COVID-19 demand, including hand sanitizer in stand-up spouted pouches, and PPEs such as isolation gowns, food service gloves, and shoe covers.
“These, in addition to Vonco’s standard infection prevention products, form-fitting medical device covers, multi-compartment specimen collection bags, and 95kPa biohazard transport bags, position the company as a leader in the fight against COVID-19,” a spokesperson said.
“We’ve had two straight months of record demand,” said Keith Smith, president and CEO of Vonco Products. “As the country battles COVID-19, we’ve adapted to meet the critical needs of first responders, nurses, doctors, and scientists working on cures and vaccines, all of whom are the true heroes during this pandemic.”
“Our associates have really stepped up to meet this crisis head-on. It’s a testament to Vonco, and our core value of caring for each other and our customers, that we continue to meet this increasing demand while upholding the highest quality standards. I am so incredibly proud of our associates,” Smith added.
With production at a record pace, the Vonco production floor operates 24-hours per day for 13 out of 14 days to stay ahead of demand, the company has instituted several programs to reward its team members and help keep them safe from the virus. In addition to bonus and incentive opportunities the company practices social distancing.
