RED BANK, New Jersey - In just 15 years, Ansell's best-selling brand sells 500M pairs worldwide.
Ansell, global leader in health and safety solutions with over a century of expertise, has today reached a historic milestone - the sale of its 500 millionth pair of HyFlex® gloves.
Since its creation, the HyFlex® brand has become the number one selling industrial glove around the world, with over half a million workers wearing it daily in a wide variety of industries. When first introducing HyFlex® in 1996, Ansell for the first time demonstrated how optimal protection does not mean one needs to give in on comfort.
Ever since its first launch, the original HyFlex® concept has set a benchmark for industry players active in this category. In 15 years, HyFlex® has gained critical recognition and market share for its winning combination of ergonomic design, comfort and superior mechanical protection. Today, the HyFlex® range extends to 28 individual styles, ensuring that there is a glove that fits every worker's job performance requirements and comfort expectations.
Magnus Nicolin, CEO of Ansell Ltd, said: "In just 15 years, Ansell has sold 500 million pairs of HyFlex® gloves. This milestone pays tribute to the HyFlex® original brand concept which is all about delivering protection and comfort without compromise. With innovation being the hallmark of the HyFlex® glove range success today, Ansell is committed to continue to innovate and develop new ways of ensuring that our HyFlex® series remains in pole position, and is the number one choice for workers across the globe."
The HyFlex® brand is the most comprehensive light-duty synthetic portfolio in the industry. Its world-leading patented Zonz(TM) Knit Technology reduces hand fatigue by providing stress release in the knuckle areas, setting new standards in the market.
HyFlex® is a registered trademark of Ansell Ltd. or one of its affiliates.
For many decades, Ansell has innovated and led the hand protection and safety apparel industry. The company offers comprehensive business solutions to help manufacturers meet and exceed PPE standards.
