TOWA CORPORATION LTD.

We manufacture and sell various gloves for domestic, industrial, and other work uses

Our company has been committed to manufacturing and sales of various gloves for domestic, industrial, and other work uses since its establishment. Our glove types are divided into two categories. One includes gloves that are made of 100% polymer such as natural rubber, polychloroprene rubber, vinyl chloride resin, and polyurethane resin. The other includes fabric gloves that are coated with these polymers. The coating may be applied over the whole glove or partially, such as only the palms. A recycling system for used gloves has already been established, making them environmentally conscious products. Our users are all around the world including North America, Europe, and China. We are currently developing a sales network to satisfy demand from both our users and other Japanese companies operating overseas.

[Company Strengths]
Our company has been engaged in the glove business since its establishment. We can incorporate user needs into our products as we plan, develop, manufacture, and sell them ourselves. A sales network is currently being developed for users in North America, Europe, China, and other regions, as well as for demand from Japanese companies operating overseas. The sale of environmentally conscious products is a relatively new business, but it satisfies users’ ISO 14000 requirements. 

[Business Description]
Our business objective is to manufacture and sell various domestic, industrial, and work gloves, and to develop and sell environmentally conscious products. Our glove types are divided into two categories. One includes gloves that are made of 100% polymer such as natural rubber, polychloroprene rubber, vinyl chloride resin, and polyurethane resin. The other includes fabric gloves that are coated with these polymers. The coating may be applied over the whole glove or partially, such as only the palms. A recycling system for used gloves has already been established, making them environmentally conscious products.

[Product and Technology Strengths]
The most important technology in our glove production is dipping. The shape of the hand is so irregular that we dip a hand mold into rubber or resin during production. Our company designs the mold as well, and it can be fabricated from smaller than hand size to actual hand size. Rubber and resin excel in anti-slip effects, and gloves can be enhanced further by applying our original micro finish treatment. 

[Representative’s Message]
We are an all-embracing industrial glove manufacturer, and our company has remained loyal to high quality. We have improved and expanded internal factors such as R&D resources as well as manufacturing and production control systems (obtained ISO 9001 and ISO14001 certification), and our sales network. We are also actively pursuing globalization, as demonstrated by our newly opened overseas production plants (China, Malaysia, and Bangladesh), and business tie-ups with major overseas manufacturers. We will make use of the technology and experience built up in our long history as a specialized manufacturer, and work hard to develop products with innovative ideas.

[Company Structure for Market Cultivation and Overseas Expansion]
Our company has sales offices in Sapporo, Tokyo, Osaka, and Fukuoka as the point of contact for our customers. We participate in exhibitions and other events, and we have concentrated on becoming a company that creates high added value. This initiative is pursued by our sales, R&D, and production departments in a coordinated manner based on customer needs. The overseas sales department in the head office conducts sales activities targeting regions in Europe, North America, and Asia. Last year we set up an operation office in the U.S. to reinforce sales efforts in North and South America. This year, we assigned more staff to the overseas sales department for new business development and expanding our markets. The new framework has already begun. 

[Market Share and Rank]
We have a 60% share of the domestic Japanese market for natural rubber coated gloves with fabric backing. We rank second among Japanese specialized manufacturers of gloves in terms of total sales. (Source: Japan Glove Industry Association)
