ZAGO “25” YEARS IN THE MAKING
ZAGO began in 1994 as a two employee “mom and pop” business in the New Jersey Institute of Technology Enterprise Development Center small business incubator. In 1998 Zago “graduated” from the incubator and moved with seven employees to the Ironbound District of Newark to a rental property which ZAGO quickly outgrew. In 2002 ZAGO bought a 100 year old building in the South Ward of Newark which we have completely renovated over the years to suit our production and administrative needs.
In July 2007 ZAGO became approved to the ISO (International Standards Organization) 9001:2008 management systems, standards and guidelines. Since adopting the standard, ZAGO’s quality control has improved over 100% and our rate of rejection has decreased to well below 1%. It is anticipated that early in 2018 ZAGO will be approved to the ISO 9001:2015 standard.
In 2013 ZAGO decided to go “all in” in our Newark facility and installed a 50 Kilowatt solar array on our rooftop. The solar array today plays a substantial part not only in ZAGO’s contribution to environmental sustainability, but also to our economic sustainability. Since installation ZAGO’s energy costs have essentially been zeroed out between savings on our energy bills through net metering and our monthly receipt of SRECS (solar renewable energy credits) and the tax benefits ZAGO earned through the installation.
Meet The Team
At the same time that we are investing in our infrastructure and developing our products and processes, we understand that our economic future also requires investing in our employees. At ZAGO we understand the smartest investment we can make is in the training and education of our employees. Towards that end, in September of 2015 our General Manager Jackie Luciano began her EMBA program at Rutgers Newark School of Business. She successfully completed the program with her MBA in finance in May 2017 and now is our V.P. of Manufacturing Operations.
In addition, we are sending factory workers to classes at local community colleges for courses in tooling, CNC machining and manufacturing, and supporting our sales and marketing associate with her pursuit of a degree in Supply Chain Management at Kean University.
