PRESS RELEASE | Superior Glove Celebrates a Milestone Anniversary in Point Leamington
On December 1, 2018, Superior Glove celebrated the 30th anniversary of the opening of its facility in Point Leamington where many of the company’s top-selling gloves and sleeves are manufactured
Acton, Ontario – Superior Glove Works Ltd. (Superior Glove) is pleased to announce that on December 1, 2018, our office and manufacturing facility in Point Leamington, Newfoundland celebrated its 30th anniversary.
“We are thrilled to celebrate this milestone anniversary with the incredible team in Point Leamington,” commented Tony Geng, President of Superior Glove. “When we first opened this location 30 years ago, we had no idea what a hard-working team would emerge and how integral this facility would be to the success of Superior Glove.”
Nestled in a quiet cove of Newfoundland, the sparsely-populated Point Leamington doesn’t immediately give the impression of an epicenter of manufacturing prowess, but for Superior Glove, the location couldn’t be more ideal.
“We initially started looking into Point Leamington as a possible location at the suggestion of an employee,” says Mr. Geng. “After working in our Acton location for several years, this particular employee wanted to move back to Point Leamington, where he was born and raised. We didn’t want to lose this employee and at the time, we were looking to expand our manufacturing capabilities. The second we set foot in Point Leamington we were struck by the awesome natural beauty of the area and fully understood why our employee wanted to return.”
Impressed by both the area and the people, Superior Glove opened the Point Leamington facility on December 1, 1988, and it has been going strong ever since. Only steps from the Atlantic Ocean and the scenic Roswell’s Hill, the Point Leamington facility has been thriving since its inception and Superior Glove remains one of the area’s leading employers. Thirty years young, Point Leamington continues to produce some of the highest quality gloves and sleeves that Superior Glove has to offer.
