AMD Medicom Plans London, Ontario, Nitrile Glove Subsidiary

Canada-based AMD Medicom Inc., one of the world's leading manufacturers and distributors of personal protective equipment, created Manikheir Canada Inc., a new subsidiary that will produce nitrile gloves in London, Ontario. The $120 project is expected to create 145 jobs.

The operation has been made possible through a partnership with the Ontario government, which has committed to purchasing 500 million locally manufactured nitrile medical examination gloves per year for its healthcare system.

"Today marks the start of an important new chapter in Medicom's history. After opening a surgical mask and N95 respirator plant and announcing a new facility to produce the raw materials needed to make them in Quebec, we are very proud to hit another milestone, this time for nitrile gloves, by expanding our Canadian production to the industrial centre of the country, Ontario. This move will help secure the supply of this critical medical resource for hospitals in Ontario and the rest of Canada. This is possible thanks to the vision and leadership of Premier Doug Ford," commented Ronald Reuben, Founder and CEO of Medicom.

The new plant will ultimately produce more than one billion nitrile gloves each year.

"It's projects like this one that show that our government is committed to making sure Ontario remains one of the best places in North America to do business. When built, this nitrile glove factory will be the first of its kind in Canada, ensuring hundreds of direct and indirect jobs across Ontario and protecting Canada's domestic PPE supply," shared Doug Ford, Premier of Ontario.

Founded in 1988, the Medicom Group is one of the world’s leading manufacturers and distributors of high-quality infection control, single use and preventive products for the medical, dental, industrial, veterinary, laboratory and health and beauty markets. Based in Montreal, Canada, Medicom has operations in 50 countries, has 10 fully controlled manufacturing plants in North America, Europe and Asia, and sells in over 95 countries.
