For the glove of it: Alabama factory picked right time to expand



As hospitals globally cope with escalating needs from the coronavirus pandemic, there is only one factory in the U.S. that produces a specific kind of single use glove – and it is located in Alabama.

And shortly before anyone in the world had heard of COVID-19, that factory announced an expansion.

It’s a busy time at SHOWA Group’s Fayette plant, and has been for the past four months, as the factory tries to meet a growing need at the same time that the plant itself is growing.
