Janitorial and sanitation workers are essential to protecting us from COVID-19. Protecting them is just as important.
Workers in the janitorial and sanitation industry have always played a key role in protecting our quality of life. But with the current global pandemic showing no signs of dissipating, their contribution takes on a new level of importance. Sanitizing our environments matters more than ever.
AMMEX is offering several new blended vinyl and poly disposable gloves that provide excellent alternatives to nitrile and latex.
We’ve noted it before, and we note it again: Today’s market for disposable gloves is, in a word, difficult.
Now is a great time for disposable glove distributors to consider introducing their customers to the many positive qualities of vinyl gloves.
In the world of disposable gloves, nitrile is king.
The material, made from nitrile butadiene rubber or NBR, has become the standard across just about every industry. From medical needs to automotive repair, users in the front lines typically choose nitrile gloves.
With disposable gloves in high demand, vinyl is proving its worth beyond food service and janitorial applications.
The disposable glove marketplace continues to suffer from chronic supply shortages. Because of COVID-19—as well as factors from labor and capacity issues to a lack of raw materials—nitrile and latex gloves are especially difficult to come by. Prices are high and only going higher.
Vinyl gloves, however, are proving a dependable alternative. Not only are they more affordable than other materials, but they are also simply more available. And they are better made than ever before.
Nitrile butadiene rubber is in short supply the world over, making nitrile gloves both expensive and difficult to obtain.
Nearly a year since the first cases of COVID-19 appeared in the central Chinese city of Wuhan, the world is still reeling from the pandemic’s effects.
Global cases are in the tens of millions, with deaths over a million. In the U.S., the virus is proliferating. Economies continue to sputter. Still, we may not have yet seen the worst of COVID’s impact on society and the disposable glove marketplace in particular.
During these volatile times of COVID-19, inventory and pricing levels for disposable gloves are changing frequently. AMMEX has set up a faster, easier way for you to view your monthly glove allocation and pricing.
Our updated Online Portal helps distributors take control of their disposable glove business. Whether you need to order gloves, determine how much inventory you’ve been allocated, or discover pricing levels, the Portal is your one-stop shop for all things AMMEX.
Average sales prices of disposable gloves are going in one direction only: up.
The increased need for gloves worldwide, due to both the COVID-19 pandemic and a greater general awareness of health, safety, and hygiene, drives demand. Manufacturers simply cannot produce enough gloves to satisfy their customers.
COVID-19 is not going away, and if predictions are to be believed, its spread will increase this fall and winter with the arrival of flu season.
Average sales prices of disposable gloves, regardless of material type—nitrile, latex, and vinyl—are going up. Shortages of raw materials also constrain latex and nitrile production, which puts additional pressure on pricing.
The increased need for gloves worldwide continues to drive demand, due to both the COVID-19 pandemic and a greater general awareness of health, safety, and hygiene. Glove manufacturing’s inherent limitations—raw materials, labor, and capacity shortages—constrain supply.
Disposable gloves are costly, with prices rising every day. For those seeking economies in this difficult market, vinyl gloves are worth your consideration. They are the most readily available and face the fewest manufacturing constraints.
In this era of COVID-19, personal hygiene is at the top of everyone’s mind. Demand for disposable gloves has consequently gone through the roof.
Problem is, so have prices.
