Success Stories

Our clients range from the US Navy to large healthcare companies and they all believe that designing, making, and distributing high-quality products is good for business.
We agree with them.

Healthcare

Challenge

A small privately-owned business specializing in patient positioning devices was in need of a manufacturing and logistics partner to help meet their growing customer needs.

Solution

Casco partnered to co-develop and design products to increase efficiency and reduce the cost of manufacturing (without compromising the integrity of the finished product). We source materials, fabricate, inspect, package and drop-ship directly to customers. Casco maintains a flow of qualified materials and a small inventory of finished goods, ensuring that orders will be completed quickly, accurately, and with the highest quality.

Outdoor Products

Challenge

A high-end, outdoor grill company was looking for a manufacturing partner to fabricate top quality grill covers to help their customers protect and extend the life of their outdoor cooking investment.

Government

Challenge

The US Navy needed a safer way to distribute lithium hydroxide (LiOH) crystals in the event of a submarine power failure. When a sub fails, the air support system may also fail. At the time, their emergency response was to sprinkle LiOH crystals on the floor of the vessel to cleanse the air and provide oxygen (LiOH converts carbon dioxide into oxygen). The crystals themselves are caustic and will burn human skin, so this process was not safe for submarine personnel.

Solution

Casco partnered with Battelle, the world’s largest independent research and development organization, to create a solution for this critical problem. Together, Battelle and Casco chose a breathable material, and a custom sealing solution to produce a curtain-shaped pouch to hold the LiOH crystals. In the event of a power failure, crew members open the curtain and pour LiOH crystals into the channels. Sealed channels prevent the crystals from coming in contact with the individual, but the fabric used is breathable to allow the chemical reaction to take place. The curtain is then attached to the wall using simple wire ties to keep the floor space safe and passable. Casco is pleased to produce these safe and quality curtains for the US Navy.

Institutional

Challenge

A local homeless shelter was in need of an economic bedding solution that would also be easy to clean and bed bug proof.

Solution

Casco made the shelter mattresses with an integrated pillow and a durable, easy to clean cover. The mattress is completely sealed to help protect the residents and workers by preventing fluid ingress and being completely bed bug proof. The Casco Institutional mattress purchase will allow the shelter to provide a safe, comfortable place to rest for people in need for years to come.
