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.
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 May 13, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced that people vaccinated against the coronavirus are safe to go without face masks in most cases. That set off a round of debate: Should we abandon all mask mandates? Is the CDC crazy, especially with the Delta variant spreading?
About six weeks later, the World Health Organization urged even fully vaccinated people to continue wearing masks and practicing COVID-19 safety measures such as social distancing. The debate raged on.
The debate over face masks is a long way from resolved.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says fully vaccinated people do not need to wear masks. The World Health Organization says even the fully vaccinated should continue to wear them as a precaution against the highly infectious Delta variant of the coronavirus.

Last week, we examined the current state of the disposable glove market, relative to the continuing COVID-19 crisis and obstacles manufacturers face in Southeast Asia. This week, we look at a problem that has been with us for months and continues to wreak havoc across numerous industries—the global supply chain.
After years of optimizing their supply chains and building around just-in-time inventory across all industries, companies are struggling to keep their products moving around the world at the same pace. As a result, the world is running low on everything.
Whew. What a scorching weekend.
Folks on the U.S. West Coast, especially in the Pacific Northwest, have been suffering through unprecedented heat. Temperatures are expected to remain somewhere between miserable and dangerous through the week. Triple-digit highs and unusually warm nights have tested everyone’s patience (and the electrical grid as well).
