AMMEX periodically asks customers for feedback on our online portal.
You may have already heard from us, or you may hear from us soon. The following is a summary of three common questions and concerns we have received.
Supply chain problems continue around the world. Everyday products of all kinds are in short supply, expensive, or both. Sellers are experiencing delays due to congested ports and container shortages.
Versatility is one of the major discussion points for selling vinyl disposable gloves. When you add exam-grade vinyl and synthetic hybrids to the conversation, the possibilities for use-cases expand even more.
If you’re working in a restaurant, you need protection for your hands. With eateries just reopening to indoor dining after a year-plus of coronavirus-induced shutdowns, hygiene is not a matter to be taken lightly. (Then there’s that whole cross-contamination thing, which also involves a lot of hand-washing.) Black synthetic vinyl is a great solution, especially for front-of-house wear.

After nearly a week of being stuck in the Suez Canal, blocking shipping traffic in both directions, the 1,312-foot vessel finally was “successfully refloated.” Crews that had worked around the clock got help from a few extra inches of tidal flow to move the Ever Given back to the center of the canal.
The biggest vaccination campaign in history is under way. More than 535 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have been administered across 141 countries, according to data collected by Bloomberg. The latest rate was roughly 14.5 million doses a day.
In the U.S., more Americans have received at least one dose than have tested positive for the virus since the pandemic began. To date, 143 million doses have been administered. In the last week, an average of 2.71 million doses a day were distributed, and at least 20 states have expanded vaccinations to all adults.

In recent weeks we’ve written about the supply chain crises of container ships backed up outside West Coast ports, waiting to be unloaded, and the consequent logistics challenges of getting products to the U.S. The situation is causing massive delays for goods from furniture to electronics to Pelotons.
As you certainly have noticed if you’ve looked at cable TV or internet news in the last few days, things just got a whole lot worse.
What standards apply to disposable exam-grade gloves? How do you know if the gloves you are wearing are safe? These are among the most frequent questions we get from distributors and end-users alike.
What is the difference between exam- and industrial-grade gloves?
Expressed as simply as possible: Exam- and industrial-grade gloves vary in quality, specifically in the number of manufacturing defects per batch of gloves. But there is a lot more nuance to it than one might think.
After nearly a year of ups and downs, the no-fun-at-all roller-coaster ride that is COVID-19 shows few signs of stabilizing in the immediate future.
For every bit of good news we get—newly reported COVID cases in the U.S. recently dropped below 100,000 for the first time this year, and hospitalizations have begun to decline—there are such developments as the more-contagious U.K. variant of the coronavirus predicted to spread rapidly in the U.S.
There are not a lot of bargains to be had these days. But we have one you might want to check out.
Value is a difficult thing to come by in today’s disposable glove marketplace.
With nitrile and latex prices going through the roof—and lack of availability only compounding the situation—finding a “go-to” glove that you can stick with is difficult.
