TWO POWERFUL COMPANIES. ONE POWERHOUSE IN PROTECTION.
Showa Best Glove is an acknowledged leader in the hand protection industry. With U.S. headquarters in Menlo, Georgia, and manufacturing and sales operations in the United States, Canada, Central and South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Pacific Rim, the company offers more than 1,800 individual glove choices in a variety of styles for use primarily in the construction, industrial, automotive, healthcare, and retail.
Customers enjoy best-in-class technology, a comprehensive hand protection portfolio, extensive channel coverage, and global production facilities—all offered by a team that is committed to the world’s highest quality hand protection and customer service.
Recognized internationally for innovative technology and superior quality, the company manages the entire production process, from research and development to manufacturing to product management. This strict “start-to-finish” control over production processes provides the foundation for the enhancement of existing products and new product development. ATLAS®, the world’s most popular brand of flat-dipped, latex-palm-coated gloves, and N-DEX®, the industry’s first non-latex, non-vinyl disposable glove, are both groundbreaking examples of our R&D innovation.
On the horizon for 2011 and beyond, Showa Best Glove is committed to providing the very best hand protection products for each application. Just a few general purpose examples include the ATLAS® HI-VIZ GRIP®, used in applications where additional high-visibility protection is needed (such as at night within construction zones), the lightweight ATLAS® Opti Grip™ 340 which offers relaxed hand movement with Spandex in the fingers and Nylon across the back of the hand for better dexterity and less hand fatigue, and the recently unveiled charter member of the AEGIS family of gloves, the AEGIS KVS4™, a high performance, lightweight cut resistant product combining a level 4 cut-resistant liner with a durable, sponge nitrile patented Zorb-IT® palm coating. The blend of KEVLAR®, stainless steel, and polyester provides comfortable cut-resistance. The innovative composition of the high performance liner and the sponge nitrile technology coating affords the wearer excellent protection in applications where oil and sharp edges are prevalent. Additionally the AEGIS KVS4™ provides durable resistance to abrasions, snags, and punctures.
We provide customers with the industry’s most comprehensive chemical resistant guide, Chemrest. This guide is free online at www.chemrest.com and is powered by one of the world’s most comprehensive hand protection Web sites, www.ShowaBestGlove.com. ■
