Production will begin in September in an all-out effort to relieve the chronic shortage of much-needed nitrile gloves.
LACKAWANNA, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, July 20, 2021
/EINPresswire.com/ -- US Glove Supply is pleased to announce the
long-awaited start to manufacturing nitrile examination gloves in
September 2021, thus becoming the first glove factory to be
up-and-running in the U.S. after the pandemic. This comes as welcomed
news to the medical community as there has been a huge backlog in demand
for gloves. As the product has been in short supply due to COVID-19,
prices have tripled over the last couple of years.
Nitrile, the number one choice for gloves, is a material far more
puncture resistant than any other type with superior chemical resistance
to latex or vinyl.
Since 65% of the country's nitrile glove supply has previously
been provided by factories located in Malaysia, there has been a big
push on behalf of the U.S. government to start production domestically.
Some US Glove Supply competitors have even received major funding to
build new factories. However, US Glove Supply is completely self-funded
Some companies have been given millions of dollars to start
production, says company founder, Leon Freddy. I am proud to say that
not only are we self-funded, we will also be the first factory in the
country to open.
Freddy adds that the new facility will host twelve state-of-the-art
high-speed dipping lines with the most advanced Malaysian technology and
automation. The company estimates it will attain the production of 2
billion gloves per year by the end of 2022, as well as creating upwards
of 300 new jobs.
