Zogics headquarters in Lenox.
LENOX, Mass. — Zogics knows cleaning. It's been helping keep everything from Navy ships to elementary schools safe and sanitary for more than a decade.
 
Now, after witnessing a recent surge in COVID-19 cases, the cleaning and disinfectant retailer wants to give back to Berkshire County in a time where many businesses are struggling.
 
Zogics is offering its most popular novel coronavirus-combatting products to Berkshire businesses and nonprofits at cost and is making its facility experts available at no charge to help the community develop plans and protocols to operate as safely as possible during the pandemic.
 
"Our aim is to help, not profit at this time," CEO Paul LeBlanc said on Tuesday. "We feel a profound sense of responsibility to help where we can."
 
This program is available to first responders, health-care facilities, retail, schools, restaurants, corporate offices, manufacturing, local government, cultural institutions, and others through the end of 2020. 
 
Zogics would like to reach as many businesses as possible before the end of the year so it can get the products they need at a lower price.
 
The international distributor sells a full range of facility equipment, cleaning, sanitizing, safety, and disinfecting products for every industry. LeBlanc said the company would like to help businesses that are struggling to make ends meet during the pandemic because Zogics is in a place where it can help others because of the high demand for sanitary products COVID-19 yields.
 
In addition to providing products at cost, Zogics can assist businesses with everything from surface disinfection protocols to air sterilization solutions to personal protective equipment recommendations at no cost. It can also conduct a detailed airflow analysis for those interested in air-sterilization fans.
 
Since the beginning of the pandemic, Zogics has been helping local businesses acquire necessary items such as hand sanitizers, disinfectants, and air sanitization technology. Because the company's team are experts, they want to spread their wealth of knowledge as far as possible.
 
Zogics is one of the largest manufacturers and suppliers of critical facility products, supplying major corporations throughout the country and helping businesses near and far navigate these difficult times. Founded in LeBlanc's home, its made the list of fastest-growing companies in nation three years in a row.
 
LeBlanc said the location of Zogic's main warehouse in Lee is right in the center of Berkshire County, putting the company in a great situation to serve the local community.
 
"We love our community," he said. "We want to be as supportive as we can to local businesses and non-profits."
 
During the pandemic, individuals and businesses alike are having a harder time accessing sanitization products that were previously in abundance. LeBlanc said supplies have been significantly restrained so demand exceeds supply, creating issues such as the products being a higher price than normal. 
 
"A lot of businesses are on the brink, and as we navigate the challenges of COVID-19 this winter and beyond as we start to reopen as an economy and as a society, it will be a great focus on being able to instill confidence that one's facility is safe to enter," LeBlanc said. "and a lot of that is going to rely on the types of products that we make and carry, so whatever we can do to help those local businesses obtain those products as inexpensively as possible we want to do that."

Methuselah Loses License for Two Days

By Brittany PolitoiBerkshires Staff

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — A bar and restaurant owned by a city councilor had its license suspended for two days for violating state COVID-19 guidelines.

On Monday, the Licensing Board voted to suspend Councilor at Large Yuki Cohen's liquor license for Methuselah Bar and Lounge, scheduled for next Tuesday and Wednesday, after a hearing for three alleged pandemic violation complaints that included pictures and anonymous testimony.

Because of the anonymous nature of the evidence submitted, the board weighed in on the fact that this is not Cohen's first time in front of the Licensing Board, as Methuselah faced a five-day liquor license suspension in 2018.

"I feel like in light of what the history is, I don't think we can just pretend that there's no history,"  Chairman Thomas Campoli said, concluding with the other board members that this case had to be handled differently than if it was a first violation.

On Jan. 15, the board held a hearing for two of the violations occurring on Aug. 22 and Dec. 11. It was decided to continue the hearing for the third violation and voting until Monday, Jan. 25.
