The new facility is part of Honeywell Automation Control Systems Group's Fire & Industrial Safety Division, which covers an area of 23,639 square meters and currently produces a wide range of safety gloves including polyurethane coated wear resistant gloves and nitrile/latex coated gloves. PVC/butyronitrile beaded gloves, high-performance cut-resistant protective gloves, etc., can be used in electronics, automotive, mechanical processing, food processing, petrochemical and other industries. The new plant has a total investment of 15 million US dollars and a construction area of 23,639 square meters, with an annual output of 60 million pairs of gloves. After completion, it is expected to have an annual output of more than 100 million pairs, which will become one of the largest factories specializing in the production of protective gloves in China.
Mr. Li Ning, President of Honeywell Automation Control Systems Group Greater China, said: "As a leading global safety product specialist, Honeywell has been committed to the use of ergonomic design concepts through active technological innovation and new product development. Risk operators provide comprehensive protection from head to toe. The opening of the new Nantong plant is another important milestone for Honeywell's strategy of 'Oriental Service to the East' and 'Oriental Service to the World', for the company's safety products. The development has laid a solid foundation and will further promote Honeywell's products developed and produced in China to go abroad and serve the world."
The Nantong plant is the only production base for dip gloves for Honeywell safety products worldwide. By dipping the gloves, it can better adapt to different working environments and provide better protection for workers. Some of the plant's glove products also use Honeywell's Specialty Materials and Technology Group's Spectra® specialty fiber materials for better cut-proof ratings. In addition, the Nantong plant fully demonstrates Honeywell's sustainable development philosophy by using advanced computer controlled dipping and sprinkler system manufacturing processes to ensure minimum chemical residue in glove products. The new plant is also equipped with advanced environmental treatment equipment to ensure zero emissions and zero pollution.
With the advancement of urbanization and the increasing industrialization in the world, the demand for safety products in China and the global market is enormous, especially for the demand for various types of high-quality protective gloves. Gloves can be divided into general protection, anti-cutting, high and low temperature protection, chemical protection and many other types according to the different types of injuries to be protected. Honeywell is one of the world's largest suppliers of personal safety equipment (PPE). Its products are widely used in petroleum and petrochemical, general industry, fire rescue, power security and other fields to meet the needs of different industries for personal safety protection products. Different levels of demand protect workers' health and safety in the work environment.
The Nantong plant is not only Honeywell's important protective glove production base in the world, but also will serve as Honeywell's global protective glove research and development center, leading the overall process and technical level of China's protective glove processing industry. Since its opening, the new factory has set its sights on the global market, developing and producing multiple types and levels of protective gloves, while meeting the needs of domestic and international markets, achieving “China’s wisdom” and “hands”. ". The gloves currently produced at the new plant will not only be exported to Europe and the United States, but will also be exported to developed countries such as Japan and Australia to meet the growing demand for high-quality protective gloves from customers around the world. In addition, the Nantong plant will introduce more production and research and development of other safety protection products in the future, becoming an important production base of Honeywell's safety products business worldwide.
