Ansell, an Iselin-based global leader in safety solutions, announced Thursday an innovative product line that may inform the direction of the company moving forward.Its new HyFlex gloves featuring INTERCEPT Cut Resistance Technology blend engineered, synthetic and natural fibers into high-performance yards, yielding eight new medium and light duty glove styles that feature increased comfort, flexibility, durability and grip.
“Customers look to Ansell to provide quality products, and this new, unrivaled technology brings game-changing enhancements to cut protection solutions in the marketplace, while providing great value for our global customers,” said Scott Corriveau, president and general manager of Ansell’s Industrial Global Business Unit.
HyFlex INTERCEPT gloves will be available in select global markets beginning this month.
The company’s expansion of its market-leading cut protection portfolio reflects ongoing global research among safety officers, operations managers, purchasing agents and workers through the Ansell Worker Experience Innovation Program, and is expected to dramatically transform global workplace safety procedures.
It also enhances the company’s aggressive growth plan, which has included acquiring seven companies over the past four years while continuously introducing new products.
A $1.6 billion company with 13,000 employees last year, Ansell — originally founded in Melbourne, Australia (where it maintains a co-global headquarters) — focuses on industrial, medical and sexual protection products.
