While we haven’t always been able to deliver everything they wanted, at the same time, AMMEX’s honesty and commitment to excellence have been appreciated and acknowledged by our customer base.

Every distributor knows that happy customers lead to greater revenues. Of course, there are several nuances when it comes to selling disposable gloves, such as having the right product info, helping customers try out the product, and asking the right questions to identify the correct needs.

Our distributors frequently encounter end-users who are buying the wrong gloves for their intended purpose. Many are predisposed against using vinyl gloves under any circumstance, even when they deliver better-than-expected performance at a lower price. Learning as much as you can about your client’s needs can help you put your glove expertise to good use.

For the last couple years, nitrile industrial-grade disposable gloves have not always been easy to come by.

With the onset of the pandemic, manufacturers were forced to ramp up production quickly. They turned their immediate focus to exam-grade product to meet the overwhelming need in medical applications. For industrial nitrile, prices went up and availability went down.

Disposable Glove Demand Expected to Remain Strong

For the first time in two years, the coronavirus is not the No. 1 issue affecting global markets. Instead, oil prices—and the war in Ukraine—have become the top disruptors slowing trade and driving up costs.

That doesn’t mean COVID is going away just yet. Governments have been lifting restrictions imposed to slow its spread, including rules governing travel, socializing, mask wearing, and self-isolation. But still it lingers, and in some countries it is thriving.

7 Black Disposable Gloves to Cover Your Customers’ Every Need

AMMEX has a wide selection of black disposable gloves to fit most needs.

While orange and green are popular colors for nitrile disposable gloves—especially when they feature Raised Diamond Texture—AMMEX has over the last decade-plus sold more black than any other color.

Why? Because there is something universally appealing about black gloves. From an aesthetic point of view, they convey a sense of authority, that the wearer means business. On a practical level, they conceal grease, grime, and dirt to maintain a professional appearance. And if we’re talking about fashion sense, well, nothing says cool like basic black.

With SE Asia Recovering from COVID, Glove Capacity Will Return

Southeast Asia is starting to recover from its COVID surge of 2021.

Factories have reopened and production is picking up in major manufacturing areas of Southeast Asia as COVID-19 cases have dropped in recent weeks. This has eased some of the supply-chain constraints that companies blame for lost sales.

While this does not mean that makers of disposable gloves are back to full production yet, it does hint that the industry is trending in the right direction. In Malaysia, which produces nearly 80% of the world’s disposable gloves, efforts to transition its workforce from imported foreign labor to hiring local workers and emphasizing automation are well under way.

5-Mil Black Nitrile Is a Great Solution During Shortage of Thicker Gloves

Gloveworks Industrial Black Nitrile Gloves from AMMEX.

The disposable glove market has seen a shortage of thicker products ever since the emergence of COVID-19. In order to meet astronomically higher demand for nitrile, manufacturers were forced to produce more gloves at thinner measurements (and in smaller sizes).

Some of our most popular gloves—especially the Raised Diamond Texture suite, 8-mil orange and green, and 6-mil black and royal blue nitrile—have been in extremely short supply for the better part of two years.
