Disposable gloves are not exempt from the chaos. From labor shortages in Southeast Asia factories brought about by surges in COVID-19 cases, to scarcity of container vessels, to closed ports, to backed-up ships off the coast of California, countless products—including gloves—are not getting through.
AMMEX has made a number of improvements to the online portal to enable our distributors with a set of new sales tools. We listened to you and made changes based on your input. We also incorporated industry best practices for UX/UI and the online behavior of our customers.
One of the helpful new features is Your Product Toolkit, a subsection (along with Manage Your Business) of the AMMEX Partner Business Center. It can help you gain product expertise with information tools, media assets, guides, and much more.
The last year and a half has been frustrating for automotive technicians and the distributors who keep them in disposable gloves.
It has been difficult obtaining the kind of thick, durable gloves that techs need to withstand the rigors of working on vehicles. Manufacturers in Malaysia, hamstrung by lockdowns, movement control orders, and limits on capacity, are months behind on their production schedules.
In these make-or-break times for restaurants, cleanliness has never been more important. And you can’t have a truly clean restaurant without disposable gloves.
Food and beverage sales in the restaurant industry are projected to total $789 billion in 2021, up 19.7% from 2020. That’s an encouraging turnaround, considering that during the pandemic the industry has lost nearly $300 billion in sales.
If you are a distributor of disposable gloves, the last year and a half has been, to say the least, challenging.
We’ve heard over and over from our partners about their frustration with glove availability, especially of heavier nitrile gloves.
Of all the gloves AMMEX offers, Gloveworks Black Nitrile Industrial Gloves (product code: GPNB) are at the top of the list for versatility and dependability.
These durable, 5-mil disposables are in a sweet spot of thickness and dexterity. They offer an excellent barrier against chemicals and cleaning solutions, especially those made from petroleum. The gloves protect against bacteria and environmental contaminants. They feature three times the puncture resistance of latex gloves with fit, feel, and comfort to rival natural rubber (and without aggravating latex allergies).
If you think workplace safety programs aren’t worth the investment, consider this case from consulting firm Excite Safety Training
An electrician was called in to finish a project. The previous electrician, a 19-year-old apprentice, couldn’t get it done.
Why not? He was in the hospital. In a vegetative state. After being electrocuted on the job.
On June 1, AMMEX ended the practice of glove allocations. We made our entire inventory equally available to all distributor partners on a first-come, first-served basis.
Unlike latex gloves, nitrile and vinyl gloves are not made from natural rubber. These gloves come from synthetic materials, but the manufacturing process is essentially the same as latex glove production.
Neither nitrile nor vinyl gloves will aggravate sensitivities to latex, and are largely replacing latex gloves in most applications, especially food service and medical use.
