Press release date: November 18, 2011

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.
