Unigloves gearing up for SHW Live

08 January 2023

SHW LIVE Founding Partner and hand and arm protection specialist Unigloves is looking forward to being part of another highly successful event in Manchester in February 2023.

Unigloves, which recently celebrated its 20th anniversary in the UK, is driven by its mission to constantly find new and better ways to protect hands.

A truly global glove manufacturer with its manufacturing base in Malaysia consisting of four production facilities, producing in excess of 4.6 billion gloves annually, Unigloves has grown following its arrival in the UK in 2002 to become one of Europe’s most trusted providers of protective products and services

Its combination of industrial, disposable and insulating glove ranges ensures it is best placed to meet the hand and arm protection needs of workers across a wide range of industrial settings from food manufacturing and healthcare through to automotive, utilities and transport.

Sustainable products will feature on the Unigloves stand, including its latest nitrile biodegradable disposable gloves – BioTouch – combining chemical resistance, comfort and grip with innovative, environmentally friendly, Biodegradable Technology.

Biodegradability performance is achieved thanks to an organic additive, which attracts microbes found in landfills. The biodegradation method is strictly enzymatic, dissolving and de-polymerising the polymer chain naturally.

The result is a glove ideally suited to a wide range of industrial applications which, after its working life, will achieve >91% biodegradation in landfill within 630 days compared to traditional nitrile gloves which can take over 100 years.

"Unigloves is proud to be a Founding Partner for SHW Live. We look forward to meeting influencers from safety and health, face to face and discussing how we can protect the hands of workers across all industries. The pandemic has shown us how important it is to look after the wellbeing of our staff and it's great to see SHW Live incorporating wellbeing into their events," said Unigloves’ UK Managing Director Chris Wahlers.

“We’re often asked how a young business makes itself recognised in such a competitive market. It’s one of our favourite questions and one we always answer in the same way. 

“We never lose sight of the fact that our business is all about our customers.

“By understanding our End Users’ needs, anticipating how they will evolve in the future, and focusing on using our in house manufacturing technology to find new and better ways to protect hands, we can work towards our vision of becoming the leading and most responsible hand protection manufacturer in the world,” added Chris.
