Superior Glove to open new Newfoundland plant, hire 20 workers
Industrial glove maker will produce cut-resistant gloves and protective arm sleeves at new facility
ACTON, Ont.—Work glove manufacturer Superior Glove Works Ltd. is preparing to open its third Canadian manufacturing plant in central Newfoundland.
Located in Springdale—about two hours from the company’s larger plant in Point Leamington—the new facility will make cut-resistant gloves and protective arm sleeves.
The industrial glove manufacturer said it expects the new plant to increase its market reach within Canada and boost exports.
“This is about our continued commitment to manufacturing in Canada, it means more jobs for Canadians and more hardworking hands and arms worldwide being protected by our Superior gloves and sleeves,” the company’s president, Tony Geng, said in a statement.
The plant will open its doors in November with 12 employees before increasing its staff to 20 next year as production ramps up.
