Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic,
Zistos Corporation is taking every precaution necessary to both protect our
staff and keep our lines of communication open between each other and our
customers. We have already started shifting our workers to working from home to
protect them and will be keeping the office open with a small crew to keep
certain business moving for now. In this time, we will be available via phone
and email just as we usually are to deal with any issues, questions or
opportunities you may have.
Zistos is based in NY and may have
to deal with a shutdown at some point moving forward. If that does occur, we
are prepared and still commit to having our phones and emails open to you. If
anyone has any questions or concerns about orders, demos, T&Es, or any
other Zistos business please do not hesitate to reach out to us and we are
committed to taking care of our customers in any way possible.
We will be keeping you updated via
our blog and email. Again, if there are any questions about anything Zistos
related please do not hesitate to reach out, our phones will always be on.

Congratulations to the members of the multi-agency team that were successful in the largest cocaine seizure in US History. The individuals involved in this mission engaged in a lot of hard work, in very difficult and dangerous conditions. We greatly appreciate their efforts and dedication in keeping our streets free of the 17.5 tons of illegal drugs captured in this operation.
All of us at Zistos are proud of the fact that our inspection equipment assisted them in the successful outcome of this landmark seizure. Thank you all for a job well done!
