Showa Glove Manufacturing Expansion
Construction is complete at the new 41,000 square-foot expansion to Showa Glove's manufacturing plant in Fayette, Alabama. This expansion doubles Showa's capacity to manufacture synthetic rubber gloves, which are used as personal protective equipment by healthcare workers and, thus, greatly needed in the current pandemic. The plant has remained fully operational during construction with zero loss in production. This expansion is expected to enable Showa to create more than 175 new jobs.
