World's Leading Manufacturer of Exam, Surgical and Industrial Rubber Gloves.
Leader in Nitrile Gloves, Polychloroprene Gloves, and Latex Gloves
Medisafe Technologies is a world-class manufacturer of Medical- and Industrial-grade disposable nitrile, polychloroprene and latex gloves. Within the Medical sector we manufacture Exam gloves, Dental gloves, High-Risk (EMS) gloves and Surgical gloves. Within the Industrial segments we manufacture latex and latex-free gloves to end-markets that include chemical protection, laboratory services, janitorial and automotive. We are unique in our ability to manufacture gloves using any of three different polymers: Nitrile, our proprietary Polychloroprene formulation (a Neoprene-based polymer), and Natural Rubber.
We are based in Medan, Indonesia, which is located in the rubber-rich region of Sumatra (Northwest Indonesia). We have four manufacturing plants contiguously situated that allow us to produce 825 million gloves per annum, making us one of Indonesia's largest Nitrile and Latex glove manufacturers. Medisafe Technologies has been in existence since 1989 as a wholly-owned but operationally independent subsidiary of the Indorama industrial group, a US$4.0 billion worldwide conglomerate. We are fully committed to and entirely focused on the production of disposable powder and powder-free gloves and are an integral supplier to many of the world's largest natural rubber and synthetic glove distributors.
We have client relationships that span over 15 years which substantiates the quality of our offering and our commitment to the customer. We are ISO 13485 certified (exceeds ISO 9001 and EN46002 standards), and were the first glove manufacturer in Indonesia to achieve each of these ratings. We are also deeply focused on our environmental obligations and to this end extensively use Biomass as an alternative fuel source of power for our boilers.
All of this means you are building a relationship with a Company committed to product excellence, continuous innovation and customer satisfaction.
Whether it be for the Medical or the Industrial segment, Medisafe Technologies is committed to delivering unparalleled innovation and quality in disposable glove manufacturing. We produce a wide variety of gloves types, sizes, colors and characteristics to best suit our customers’ needs. To see our full suite of glove products, please click here.
Our gloves fall primarily within three categories:
- Nitrile Gloves (Synthetic)
- We are well aware of certain end-user preferences for latex-free gloves due to the threat of allergenic reactions from natural rubber and consequently offer an alternative polymer in the form of Nitrile. Medisafe Technologies was an early adopter of Nitrile and has led the industry in developing and producing high-quality Nitrile products.
We offer Nitrile gloves in a chlorinated version (CH) and as with our other gloves, provide them in a variety of sizes, thickness' and colors to suit your preferences. We are one of the first to come out with a Nitrile "Ultra Thin" glove that retains all the inherent safety and benefits of a synthetic polymer while providing a thinner, more flexible glove for ease of donning and extended-wear comfort. We have also just announced our "Super-Premium" brand of Nitrile glove that has unparalleled softness and donning capabilities and which is proving to be another big winner.
- Polychloroprene Gloves (Synthetic)
- In addition to Nitrile gloves, Medisafe Technologies has developed a unique and exclusive synthetic alternative in the form of Polychloroprene. This Neoprene-based, latex-free solution offers advanced characteristics in certain areas over Nitrile gloves. We have a still-valid US patent on this formulation and are therefore the only manufacturer in the world to offer this type of advanced synthetic glove.
We view our ability to provide Polychloroprene as a key factor differentiating us from our competitors given that we currently supply this latex-free glove to a number of major distributors worldwide. As with our other gloves, we provide our Polychloroprene gloves in a variety of versions, sizes, thickness and colors to suit your preferences. We have a detailed write-up on the benefits of Polychloroprene as an attractive synthetic alternative here.
- Natural Rubber Gloves
- We make natural rubber latex gloves for the Exam, High Risk and Surgical professions. Within Exam, we offer both pre-powdered and powder-free (polymer-coated) latex options. Our Natural Rubber latex gloves come in a variety of colors, including white, blue, green and pink. We also offer flavored options such as peppermint, which are ideally suited for dental applications.
Our Natural Rubber latex gloves have a lower potential to elicit latex allergy reactions because unlike most medical glove manufacturers Medisafe Technologies has dedicated in-house rubber latex processing facilities. This allows us to take field rubber and mature it using a proprietary process. This results in better quality, higher consistency and a lower protein content for our gloves, something our customers – and the ultimate end-users – appreciate immensely.
Medisafe Technologies' Commitment to the Customer
We take our customer commitments very seriously and are focused on delivering quality, innovative glove solutions in a timely manner.
We consistently supply to the world’s biggest medical distributors, including Ansell, Sempermed and Microflex, but value each customer regardless of size. We adhere to the strictest of international quality standards which is reflected in our numerous quality certifications which can be found here. Furthermore, for the past 15 years all of our Latex, Nitrile and Polychloroprene glove shipments to the United States have passed strict USFDA inspections and European EN standards, a quality record that few companies can match. We have a full-fledged US presence to provide same-day customer support to the US and European markets. We are audited annually by TUV NORD.
In short, we believe we have a number of competitive advantages that allow us to provide you with innovative glove solutions, and are keen to show you the Medisafe Technologies advantage. Please view the “Why Medisafe” page for a more comprehensive review of our competitive advantages.
