8 Questions to Help You Select the Right Glove Manufacturer

by Joe Geng on June 16, 2014

Comments (0)


80 percent of occupational injuries occur to the arms and hands. Which makes a lot of sense if you think about it. Our hands are used in almost every activity on the job.  Education and safety training is critical, it is also important to ensure you have selected a good work glove manufacturer. With that in mind, here are eight questions you should be asking to help you select the right glove manufacturer:

 

Question 1

Do You Make your Own Gloves, or Do You Import From Overseas?

Most people will say that they do manufacture their own gloves. A follow up question to this would be “Can I visit your factory?” Any hesitation is a red flag.

Question 2

Are You Focused Exclusively on Gloves or Do You Carry Any Other Products?

Lack of focus is a bad sign. Would you want one healthcare practitioner to take care of your dental, physical, psychological and nutritional needs, or do you prefer to keep your dentist and GP separate?

 

Question 3

Testing – Do You Test Your Own Products or Rely on Manufacturer Test Results?

North American lab results are much more reliable than testing from overseas labs. Make sure you are getting accurate data.

 

Question 4

Do You Have Any Industry Partners (i.e., DuPont, DSM, etc.)?

These types of partnerships signal quality manufacturers. Big names brands do a lot of research before entering into these partnership agreements. Use their research and qualification system to your advantage. Our S18KGNE gloves are made with Kevlar®, they are the worlds first and only 18-gauge arc flash rated glove.

Question 5

What Types of Quality Control Procedures Do You Have in Place?

Look for answers like TQM or ISO 9000. Lack of specifics here is a red flag. Run, don’t walk.

 

Question 6

What Types of Quality Control Procedures Do You Have in Place?

You want to make sure the manufacturer is efficient at inventory management and will be able to fulfill your orders. If they can’t answer this, then you might have a bad time.

 

Question 7

Can You Manufacture Custom Products if Needed? If so, what are Your Minimum Order Quantities and Lead-time?

This should be important to you. Safety compliance will be the most successful if you can provide your workers with gloves that feel good, fit well, and protect from every hazard specific to their job duties. You want to make sure your manufacturer can work with you to customize solutions.

 

Question 8

Can You Provide Testimonials?

The manufacturer should be happy and eager to provide these!  Testimonials are proof of solid relationships and successful partnerships.
