Should You Remove Disposable Glove Suppliers as Middlemen?

Stanley Thai, founder of Malaysian rubber glove manufacturer Supermax, is cutting out the middleman. Supermax, the world's second largest rubber glove producer, is now selling direct to consumers.

As a means of realizing savings, buyers (for example, England's National Health Service – trying to find £1bn of savings in its supply chain by 2016) may choose to buy direct from manufacturers rather than going through a disposable glove supplier middleman.

Of course, sourcing direct from a manufacturer does have its disadvantages. When taking advantage of Mr. Thai's new business model, the buyer assumes the following risks:

  • Since manufacturers don't have mechanisms in place for customer support, service often lacks. They will first and foremost protect their larger client relationships, and customer service sometimes suffers.
  • Wholesalers/importers take the risk of buying too much of one size and not enough of another, causing a supply imbalance.
  • Returns could also be an issue. For example, the manufacturer could make the customer pay for return shipping and a restocking fee.

Gloves Aid Drop in Deadly V.A. Hospital Infections

Over a 32-month period, 153 Veterans Affairs (VA) hospitals in the United States were studied to monitor a drop in the rate of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections. Rates had been relatively unchanged in the two years prior to the study.

The four-year strategy beginning in 2007 involved screening with nasal swabs, isolating anyone who tested positive, and requiring extra safety measures for staff who came in contact with those patients.

The result was a 62 percent drop in MRSA infections in intensive care units, and a 45 percent stop in surgical and rehab units.

The VA hospitals' effort to reduce the spread of deadly bacterial infections counters the popular notion that "infections are an unavoidable cost of doing business."
