Glove Distributors Who Deliver Brand Consistency Are Positioned for Success

AMMEX's new packaging will begin to make its debut in February 2021.

The last 15 months since the coronavirus spread globally have, of course, been a frustrating time for everyone in the disposable glove industry.

For end users, a lot of that frustration stems from the lack of a consistent brand experience. If you can’t buy the gloves you want from a source you trust, you may have to use less-than-honorable sellers. And that means quality can suffer.

Industrial Nitrile Gloves in Stock at AMMEX Despite Global Shortage

Gloveworks Black Nitrile Industrial Gloves (GPNB) are latex-free and powder-free.

In last week’s blog post, we wrote about disposable glove thickness, which can be a source of confusion for end users (and sometimes even distributors). This week we examine how to choose the right glove material for the job.

When the coronavirus went global in early 2020, the disposable glove market was turned upside down. Inventory of nitrile gloves—far and away the most popular—soon dropped as pricing rose substantially. Now, a year later, nitrile inventory is coming back, prices are coming down, and the amount of available gloves is working its way back to pre-pandemic levels.

Disposable Glove Thickness: What You Need to Know

When it comes to evaluating disposable gloves, thickness isn’t everything. The material they are made of, and whether they are industrial or exam grade, are also key factors in determining their appropriate applications.

But are face mask requirements going away entirely? Not likely. It would be prudent to keep some on hand, at least through the summer and probably longer.
