Nitrile Glove Manufacturer Rhino Health Expands Church Rock, New Mexico, Plant

Korean-based nitrile glove manufacturing company, Rhino Health, will expand to the Nation Indian Reservation in Church Rock, New Mexico. The company plans to create up to 350 new jobs.

Rhino Health is a US-based company with a global management team from a leading Korean rubber conglomerate, Jungwoo Rubber & Plastic. The manufacturing facility will become a supplier of nitrile to be marketed to government agencies, medical facilities, the food industry and retail. Industrial development and glove manufacturing is a new avenue to employ Navajo people and diversify the Nation’s economy.

The company also plans to invest more than $49 million in their new 124,000 square foot manufacturing facility and warehouse. This international recruitment is supported by New Mexico's closing fund, LEDA.

“I’m so proud to see another world-class manufacturing leader choose to invest in New Mexico,” said Governor Susana Martinez. “Since 2011, we have worked hard to make New Mexico business-friendly for manufacturers and we are again seeing the results of our efforts.”

“Rhino Health choosing New Mexico represents another successful foreign direct investment win under Governor Martinez’s leadership,” said Economic Development Secretary Matt Geisel. “This big win represents impactful job creation on the Navajo Nation and for rural New Mexico. It really highlights the power of our economic development toolbox and effective, smart collaboration across entities to diversify the Nation’s and the State’s economy. Welcome to New Mexico, we’re thrilled to have you.”
