Queen Anne’s County Business Community Steps Up in the Fight Against COVID-19

In Governor Larry Hogan’s Friday afternoon press conference, he announced several Maryland Companies that were awarded grant funding to produce personal protective equipment and products used to help in the fight against COVID-19. We are proud that one of those companies is NRL & Associates, Inc., located in Stevensville Maryland.

NRL received funding to ramp up production of parts for ventilators that are essential for the treatment of COVID-19. According to the NRL recent Facebook post, they “purchased a FANUC Robodrill Häberle machine that will be used to manufacture these parts. The machine is a 5-axis CNC milling center with a robotic arm that changes the 36 different pallets held in the carousel. Once the machine is fully loaded, it will run unmanned for approximately eight hours allowing us to further utilize lights-out manufacturing through the night and on weekends.”

The parts we are manufacturing in this machine are used in the ventilators that are essential for the treatment of COVID-19.

Last month Governor Larry Hogan announced that Maryland Commerce created a 5 million dollar fund to incentivize businesses to manufacture personal protective equipment and other supplies to satisfy the increasing needs of the healthcare industry.
