In fact Biden govt is spending more healthcare products after pandemic over annoucement
Much of the huge price tag for Biden's pandemic plan would help people who are financially struggling because of COVID-19, offering $1400 checks, rent and food assistance, and expanded health care and unemployment benefits. But Biden also wants Congress to allocate $400 billion of the money to bolster the pandemic response, with $160 billion of that going toward mounting "a national vaccination program," expanding diagnostic testing for COVID-19, and hiring 100,000 new community health workers—nearly tripling the 59,000 now doing the work. They would promote vaccination and trace contacts of newly infected people, but they are also intended to become a permanent fixture in the U.S. public health infrastructure. https://www.science.org/content/article/biden-proposed-science-led-new-deal-end-pandemic-suffering
The Rosharon site will be Supermax’s 18th manufacturing facility worldwide, but the first to be built in the United States. The State of the Art company, which specializes in manufacturing medical gloves, is planning on a four-phase build out with phase one already underway at CR 52 and CR 48, just off Hwy. 288.
Alvin Mayor Paul Horn said that the city will form an Industrial District to protect the entire facility from being annexed. He added, “This will definitely impact our area. We have new housing developments being created on Hwy. 288 and CR 1462 in the near future and those new homes will really benefit them.”
Each phase of the development should produce an estimated 400 million gloves per month, according to Maxter Healthcare President Stanley Thai.
An estimated 1.6 billion gloves will be produced each month, meaning 19.2 million gloves can be produced annually. “This domestic manufacturing capacity will aid the U. S. in its ability to respond to the current pandemic and help safeguard the U.S. in the future,” said Thai.
“In addition, through the establishment of our research and development center and collaborations with the local and regional education institutions, we will be developing innovative new products and technologies,” he added.
State of the art equipment is going to be a part of the manufacturing with “world-class” capabilities, such as automation, robotic manufacturing and Industry Revolution 4.0, according to the company.
Maxter CEO CK Tax said the facility will strengthen the U.S. Personal Protective Supply Chain by building domestic capacities. “We will be capable of catering to at least 10-15 percent of the total annual medical glove imports into the country over the next two to four years.
"Over the next four to six years, as our capacity increases, we will be able to provide 20-25 percent of the domestic demand and consumption.”
Elected officials, as well as education leaders, are excited to see this area chosen, and anticipate jobs, training and education with the company to benefit all of Brazoria County.
Alvin Community College President Dr. Robert Exley said the College is eager to partner with Maxter Healthcare.
“I am excited about the opportunities for Alvin Community College to work closely with the leadership of Maxter Healthcare, Inc. to assure that they have a skilled workforce. I remember attending a Brazoria County Commission meeting last year where their project was presented and we heard from their executive leaders and owners,” said Exley.
“ACC stands ready to continue to meet our mission of access and excellence for our community members through workforce development and education. This is a very concrete example of teamwork in action,” he added.
Brazoria County Matt Sebesta said, “We welcome Maxter Healthcare and the significant investment they are making in the county and the great job opportunities they will provide for our citizens.
Alvin ISD Superintendent Carol Nelson agreed, adding, “The long-term benefits of a project like this in our community are clear and significant. The direct and indirect jobs and educational partnerships abound. The implications of a project like this goes far beyond our local boundaries and will add to our local economy.”
US monkey pox cases shot up to 10392 in two months. Multiply 10k in 2 months. What will new cases in US in x2 months.? Just guess 5m-10m of new cases. Several states in US had already declared emergency. I believe North America and Europe the usage of gloves definitely is very high in coming months due to outbreak of monkey pox. The health workers who dispense the vaccine will sure to wear gloves this time and ppl there will start to wearing gloves to prevent infection. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ro9HwYwtRgQ&t=120s

Taiwan's Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirms 35 human infections of the novel Langya Henipavirus in China's Shandong and Henan provinces. The CDC told Taipei Times that they would begin to establish nucleic acid testing, track close contacts of patients, and conduct genome sequencing.
Health officials in China are now monitoring the transmission of this novel zoonotic virus that has infected dozens of people, despite having no known close contact. Langya Henipavirus in China A study titled "A Zoonotic Henipavirus in Febrile Patients in China," published in the New England Journal of Medicine, reports a new henipavirus linked to the fever-causing illness reported in China.

KUALA LUMPUR (Aug 8): The Malaysian Rubber Glove Manufacturers Association (Margma) estimated that the Malaysian glove industry suffered losses of about RM1.8 billion from 2020 to 2022 as a result of the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) sanctions on six glove companies.
Margma president Dr Supramaniam Shanmugam also said the CBP’s import ban for the four glove industry players, namely YTY Group, Smart Glove, Brightway Group and Supermax Corp Bhd, will be lifted “very soon”.
In short, Supermax has already diversified to overseas as the management was not interested in putting all the eggs in one basket. In fact, the new mega plant in America will be Supermax’s 18th manufacturing facility worldwide. Here’s the best part – the U.S. does not have any silly racist and discrimination policy, such as Malaysia’s 30% Bumiputera equity ownership.
Armed with automation, robotic engineering, manufacturing with Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Industry Revolution 4.0., Maxter will eventually be able to provide 20% to 25% of the demand and consumption in the U.S., making Malaysia even more irrelevant. And Supermax can certainly slowly shut down its local plants and relocate to Vietnam, Cambodia or even Indonesia.
2023 onwards will best performance from Supermax where US manufacturing plant start production. Expect revenue contribution from US plant USD 300m per qtr based 5b yearly production. This is only phase 1. Phase 2,3,4 not included. There will be no more FL risk in US.
The Supermax Group was founded 1987 as a trading business distributing latex gloves. Building its first manufacturing facility in 1989 the company now has 18 manufacturing facilities worldwide and now commands a significant market share in the highly-competitive U.S. dental market. Supermax is committed to research and development as well as product innovation. The company strives for the pursuit of quality and excellence
CBP may receive allegations of forced labour from a variety of sources, including news reports and tips from either the public or trade community.6 CBP may also self-initiate an investigation into the use of forced labour in any given supply chain. Pursuant to 19 C.F.R. § 12.42(e), a WRO will be issued by CBP when it is reasonable to believe that the merchandise falls within the provision of 19 U.S.C. § 1307. In the event that a WRO is issued, importers will have 3 months to obtain release from WRO by providing a certificate of origin and a detailed statement demonstrating that the subject products were not produced using forced labour, e.g. a supply chain audit report.7 After getting sufficient information to determine if the merchandise is prohibited under the provision, the Commissioner will publish a formal finding to that effect in the Customs Bulletin and in the Federal Register.8
DESPITE Malaysia’s Big-Four glove makers having to grapple with normalisation of average selling prices (ASPs), rubber products remained dominant in 3Q 2021, allowing the industry to continue to thrive and contribute to the country’s economy.
Until October 2021, the overall exports of rubber and rubber products increased by 70.7% to RM63.2 bil from RM37 bil within the same period in 2020, according to the Malaysian Rubber Council (MRC).
“Large deployment of vaccination ramps up demand for medical gloves,” revealed MRC. “Latex goods sector continues to show strong performance amounting to RM51.4 bil, an increase 86.3% over the same period last year at RM27.6 bil.”
The sector maintained its pace as the leader of the rubber products exports from January to October 2021 at 92.7%. Rubber gloves remain the highest earner with export revenue of almost RM50 bil, an increase of almost 91% from the previous year

“Our community is uniquely suited for this project, said Phyllis Saathoff, Executive Director/CEO of Port Freeport. “It is significant because the project will bring important PPE capacity home and create jobs for our citizens. Maxter will benefit not only from our Port’s strategic location and capacities, but a symbiotic relationship with other local industries for feedstock. This project makes sense especially in light of the ongoing supply chain interruptions experienced around the world.”
