Cazenovia, NY [for immediate release] – Marquardt Switches of Cazenovia, designated as an “Essential Business” under the “New York State on PAUSE” Executive Order, will continue to work through the next few weeks and join other essential businesses in the fight against COVID- 19 by providing switches for medical applications.

Marquardt manufactures electro-mechanical switches, controls and wireless communications systems for major industries, including automotive, off-road, truck and other industrial applications.

The company’s “standard switch” division is primarily responsible for supplying switches and controls for life-saving medical equipment, including various medical devices, compressors and generators, communication mechanisms, radios, electronic medical beds, utility appliances, and other essential equipment.

Marquardt Switches has reached out to local hospitals and healthcare providers to see what supplies they need and how Marquardt can help. If you are a hospital or healthcare provider in need of supplies and think Marquardt could help with production, please send all inquiries to Kirk Wardell at
