NCS Continues Outreach to Healthcare Community

An ongoing shortage of face masks and shields, known collectively as Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), exists as the nation addresses infections caused by the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic.

As a part of our outreach to the  community, NCS Technologies is working to provide the healthcare and first responder community with additional PPE. Leveraging HP Jet Fusion 580 and HP Jet Fusion 4200 3D Printers, NCS is printing and producing NIH-validated face shields to donate to first responders and healthcare providers.   Additionally, NCS is working with a national healthcare provider network to provide prototype masks to be evaluated for effectiveness in clinical settings in the fight against the coronavirus.EMS

In the past week, NCS provided face shields PPE to the Northhampton County EMS, located on Virginia's scenic Eastern Shore. This type of PPE, which first responders greatly need when dealing with the public, is in extremely short supply nationally.


NCS is an HP partner, selling and servicing HP Jet Fusion 3D printers to government, healthcare education and commercial markets. NCS sells the compact HP Jet Fusion 580/380 Color and HP Jet Fusion 4200/5200 3D Printing Solutions for industrial prototyping and final part production. 

NCS collaborates with HP on some of the largest, most complex federal government contracts involving printers and PCs.
