AZPRO Group opened in 2004 in Avondale, AZ, in Phoenix’s West Valley. They have been fabricating signage with an emphasis on retail point of purchase (POP) graphics, vehicle wraps, and corporate-facility environmental branding. Over the years, the company has grown into a 35,000 sq. ft. shop that operates seven large-format printers, can produce 12,000 sq. ft. of graphics hourly, and earned G7 Master Printer certification. As the COVID-19 crisis escalated, owner Chris Prenovost decided to proactively develop a line of COVID-19 specific products.
“We believe that small businesses are the backbone of this country, and wanted to do everything we could to make sure fellow business owners in our community had the resources needed to stay afloat during these turbulent times,” Tom Radz, AZPRO Group’s marketing specialist, said.
Using the shop’s EFI VUTEk HS125 Pro hybrid ink, AZPRO Group has produced an array of COVID-19-related graphics, such as banners distributed to independent restaurants and public-safety signage for grocery stores. They also partnered with a construction company to provide a yard signs for every graduate from a local high school. AZPRO Group provided an abundance of photos and, following the adage that a picture is worth a thousand words, we’ll let the images document AZPRO Group’s efforts to support their community during the COVID-19 crisis.
