7 Benefits of Gratitude

Today is a good time to pause for a moment to consider the importance and benefits of gratitude.  Although it is nice to count your blessings on Thanksgiving with friends and family, being thankful throughout the year could have tremendous benefits on your quality of life.  Here’s 7 Benefits of Gratitude.

Gratitude, by definition, is the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.  It is also a proven attribute that is associated with greater happiness, as well as better physical and mental health.  According to Harvard Medical School, “Gratitude helps people feel more positive emotions, relish good experiences, improve their health, deal with adversity, and build strong relationships.”

“We are grateful for our employees, distributors and customers. Happy Thanksgiving from AMMEX!”

Here are 7 Benefits of Gratitude and how they can positively impact your life:

1.  Gratitude opens the door to more relationships

We all know that saying “thank you” is good manners, but did you know that showing appreciation can help you win new friends and build new relationships?, according to a 2104 study published in Emotion. The study found that thanking a new acquaintance makes them more likely to seek an ongoing relationship. So whether you thank a stranger for holding the door or you send a quick thank-you note to that co-worker who helped you with a project, acknowledging other people’s contributions can lead to new opportunities.

2.  Grateful people are more hopeful

Studies have shown that being grateful fosters a sense of well being and hope.  When people actively take the time to list the things they are grateful for, they feel better mentally and physically than participants who haven’t done the same.  In other words, gratitude’s benefits are not only correlational, but in some cases causal. Gratitude can act “directly, as a causal agent of well-being; and indirectly, as a means of buffering against negative states and emotions.

3.  Improve physical health with gratitude

Gratitude improves physical health. Grateful people experience fewer aches and pains and they report feeling healthier than other people.  Not surprisingly, grateful people are also more likely to take care of their health.  They exercise more often and are more likely to attend regular check-ups with their doctors, which is likely to contribute to further longevity.

Being appreciative has powerful effects on your body. Researchers have linked gratitude to lower blood pressure, fewer aches and pains, and improved immunity. A 2015 study published in Spirituality in Clinical Practice found grateful people even have healthier hearts.

4.  Be a better leader

Want to keep your employees happy and motivated? Show your appreciation. Employees who feel their work is appreciated and recognized by their boss are more likely to work harder.  Grateful leaders motivate their employees to be more productive, according to researchers at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. The study found that employees who were thanked by their managers made 50% more fundraising calls than their counterparts who hadn’t heard the same token of appreciation.

5.  Increase your resilience

Resilience is defined in psychology as the capacity to cope with stress, traumatic events and adversity. There has been a tremendous amount of research that has shown gratitude not only reduces stress, but it may also play a major role in overcoming trauma.  Studies suggest that War Veterans with higher levels of gratitude experienced lower rates of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.  Another study found that gratitude was a major contributor to resilience following September 11.  Recognizing all you have to be thankful for – even during the worst times of your life – fosters resilience.

6.  Gratitude improves self-esteem

A study published in the Journal of Applied Sport Psychology found that gratitude increased athlete’s self-esteem, which is an essential component to optimal performance. Other studies have shown that gratitude reduces social comparisons. Rather than becoming resentful toward people who have more money or better jobs – which is a major factor in reduced self-esteem- grateful people are able to appreciate other people’s accomplishments.

7.  Have more energy to work on your goals

Taking note of what you’re grateful for could help you reach your goals. A 2003 study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology found that college students who kept gratitude journals reported higher levels of alertness, enthusiasm, determination, energy and attentiveness compared to their counterparts.


Gratitude is a way for people to appreciate what they have instead of always reaching for something new in the hopes it will make them happier, or thinking they can’t feel satisfied until every physical and material need is met. Gratitude helps people refocus on what they have instead of what they lack.  We all have the ability and opportunity to cultivate gratitude, not only on Thanksgiving but throughout the year.   Simply take a few moments to focus on all that you have – rather than complain about all the things you think you deserve.  Developing an “attitude of gratitude” is one of the simplest ways to improve your satisfaction with life.

Best Disposable Gloves for the Automotive Industry


In heavy-duty environments, such as the automotive industry, only the toughest gloves will do. The automotive industry works with a variety of chemical based fluids, they handle sharp and dangerous parts and tools, and they need to be able to handle all of these things with precision. These tough jobs require workers to wear heavy duty gloves that work as hard as they do!  Here’s Best Disposable Gloves for the Automotive Industry.

As an automotive mechanic or worker in the industry, you are likely looking for three main benefits in your gloves.
1. Puncture resistance
2. Chemical protection
3. High level of dexterity

“With so many types of glove materials on the market, it is vital that you choose the best disposable gloves for the automotive industry.”

Best Disposable Gloves for the Automotive Industry

So, what are the best gloves for the automotive industry and what type of glove can provide a solution to all three of these demands? Nitrile and Heavy duty latex gloves are ideal for the automotive industry because they satisfy the many needs of automotive workers.

Technicians need gloves that have a longer duration of use, raised textures for an enhanced grip and a high level of dexterity to deliver precision. Nitrile and heavy duty latex gloves are the best choice because of their chemical protection, puncture resistance and comfort. In the automotive industry, these gloves have proven to be superior because they satisfy the three, heavy duty needs of automotive industry workers:

Puncture Resistance:
Since nitrile is a synthetic rubber, it is inherently three to five times more durable and puncture resistant than its latex counterpart. This is an important safety security for automotive mechanics as they work with many sharp objects and tools.  AMMEX nitrile gloves are 50 percent thicker than standard nitrile gloves, with three times the puncture resistance of latex. As a result, these gloves are tougher, last longer and require fewer glove changes. On the other hand, heavy duty latex gloves feature more elasticity than nitrile and have better puncture resistance than vinyl.

Chemical Protection:
Because nitrile is a synthetic rubber that is built with three chemical monomers, the material is strong and resistant to outside chemicals, like the ones that mechanics come in contact with on a daily basis. Nitrile and heavy duty latex gloves have high resistance to many chemicals, such as iodine and butane, making them ideal for automotive technicians and other workers who deal with chemicals regularly.

“The automotive industry relies on tough gloves with optimum dexterity.”

Dexterity:
The automotive industry relies on tough gloves with optimum dexterity. Heavy duty latex has greater elasticity than nitrile, providing more comfort in harsh environments and features more elasticity than nitrile; however, nitrile is flexible and will conform to the users hand after extended use, which provides a very high level of precision and dexterity that is needed in an automotive application.  Workers in the automotive industry rely on our superior line of nitrile and heavy duty latex gloves such as Gloveworks® Heavy Duty Orange Nitrile GlovesGlovePlus® Black Nitrile Gloves and our Gloveworks® Heavy Duty Latex Gloves for the toughest applications.

Which AMMEX glove is right for you?
Our Gloveworks Heavy Duty Latex Glove is an industrial grade glove that is more than twice as thick as a standard disposable latex glove. With enhanced puncture resistance, each glove has a longer duration of use so you don’t have to switch gloves as often during tough jobs. Latex gloves feature more elasticity than nitrile, and better puncture resistance than vinyl. The textured surface of the glove will give you an enhanced grip in wet and dry conditions. It’s also powder free, so you don’t have to worry about messy powder residue.

In automotive applications, it is key to note that a powder-free glove is used more frequently versus the powdered version. Although the powder inside gloves makes them easier to don and doff, the powder can be detrimental to certain automotive related applications. When the powder particles from the gloves become air borne, they can harm vehicle paints and sealants, and particularly the powder can affect the seal on windshields causing leakage into the car.

If latex allergies are of concern, nitrile gloves are an excellent option. Gloveworks Heavy Duty Orange Nitrile Gloves, are latex free and hold up to longer use with three times the puncture resistance of latex.  Orange nitrile gloves do not just look unique; the color stands out so you are more aware of where you hands are at all times, making them an excellent part of a personal protective equipment (PPE) or high-visibility program. The contrast of the color with dark environments makes workers less likely to be injured. The bright orange stands out against dim work areas, such as industrial environments, garages and under the hoods of vehicles.

Another premium option for the automotive industry is GlovePlus Black Nitrile Gloves. These nitrile gloves, have all the benefits of regular nitrile , including conforming closely to the hand when they reach body temperature for a more comfortable fit. The gloves are polymer coated to make them easier to don, and feature a beaded cuff. These gloves are the perfect balance of better dexterity and better protection.

When it comes to color options, AMMEX offers orange nitrile gloves, black nitrile gloves, and blue nitrile gloves, and when it comes to style options, we have extra thick and extra long nitrile gloves as well.  To add nitrile gloves or heavy duty latex gloves to your line up contact us online or contact your AMMEX Representative.  Or, maybe it’s time to take a different approach this year.  Let AMMEX be the change that accelerates your business growth for 2016.  Interested in growing your business for the new year?   Become an AMMEX distributor today!

Halloween Spirit: Black and Orange Nitrile Gloves


October is a spooky time, but it’s also a lot of fun.  According to National Retail Federation, more than 157 million Americans plan to celebrate Halloween this year, and nearly 44 percent are planning on dressing up. While kids are having fun putting on costumes, making crafts and gorging themselves on chocolate, most adults still have to get in a solid day’s work. Luckily, a pair of AMMEX Gloveworks Heavy Duty Orange Nitrile Gloves or AMMEX GlovePlus Black Nitrile Gloves can remind staff of the holiday while they perform their daily tasks.

Halloween colors
Employers, from offices to medical care centers, deck the halls with orange and black to celebrate Halloween. AMMEX can help you take your holiday spirit one step further. How? Black and orange nitrile gloves! These gloves may not be as frightening as ghosts and vampires, but they can certainly help employees get into the spirit of Halloween. Whether you are working with heavy machinery or in an exam room, black and orange nitrile gloves can bring a spirited reminder of Halloween everywhere you go!

The orange color doesn’t just call to mind Halloween – its bright visibility helps keep staff safe in darker environments (or when prowling dark streets). On the other hand, an additional benefit of GlovePlus Black Nitrile Gloves is they don’t show dirt and grime, giving the wearer a more professional appearance. Employees can mix and match the colors for the fullest Halloween effect.

Toughness and durability
Both pairs of gloves have three times the puncture resistance of latex with greater elasticity than vinyl. They also conform closely to the hand once they have reached body temperature, giving wearers a more comfortable fit. Spending too much money on disposable gloves is also a frightening prospect for employers, but with greater durability, workers won’t have to change their gloves as often, which means spending fewer dollars on replacements. Finally, there’s nothing scarier than a latex allergy. With nitrile gloves, employees don’t need to worry about coming in contact with latex proteins that could cause a reaction.

Terrifying texture
Nitrile gloves have a raised texture that gives a sturdy grip in wet and dry conditions. Whether you’re bobbing for apples or handing out candy bars (or dealing with industrial chemicals), objects will be secure in workers’ hands.  With black and orange nitrile gloves, Halloween can be a fun and safe holiday for everyone.

The Benefits of AMMEX Orange Nitrile Gloves


Orange nitrile gloves are one of AMMEX’s premium glove products – ideal for many industries and situations. When it comes to versatility, it is hard to beat AMMEX’s orange nitrile gloves. Want more information? Check out the infographic below!

Texture and gripping power
These gloves have a raised diamond texture designed to give wearers a better, stronger grip. With more than 3,000 raised diamonds on each glove, these products have 60 percent more surface area than a standard nitrile glove. The raised diamond grip allows wearers to work effectively in wet or dry conditions. The diamonds create channels that allow liquid to pass through easily, preventing fluids from interfering with work. The texture is all over the surface, making the gloves ambidextrous.

Better visibility
In dimly lit environments, orange nitrile gloves are a worker’s best friend. The high-impact orange color of these gloves is easy to see even in dark areas, like garages or industrial workplaces. The color of these gloves are a helpful warning to those around you that says, “Be careful! I’m working here!” For companies that prioritize safety, these gloves are a must-have. The high-visibility color also increases safety compliance.

Thickness and protection
Orange nitrile gloves are three times more puncture-resistant than latex and also have enhanced chemical resistance and durability. In fact, nitrile is recommended for employees working with 67 percent of chemicals, 28 percent more than latex or vinyl. These gloves are also incredibly comfortable. As body heat warms them up, they conform closely to the hand for a better fit. Along with a beaded cuff that makes the glove easier to put on, they are also chlorinated for powder-free donning. The chlorination process also makes them softer and more supple.

A variety of uses
With their high-visibility, orange nitrile gloves can be a central part of PPE. The thickness of the gloves also makes them ideal in oily environments, such as in automotive, manufacturing and industrial sectors. However, any industry from agriculture to painting and plumbing can benefit from having orange nitrile gloves on hand.

Business Automation and the Modern CIO


The chief information officer’s (CIO) role in business operations has evolved beyond managing only the information technology aspects of a company. Today, CIOs often spend more time collaborating with other members of the C-suite, looking at ways to improve efficiency and productivity, and this includes the implementation of automation throughout the business.

In fact, CIO Insight noted, “The modern CIO belongs at the fulcrum of all business matters,” lending expertise to various other departments. This ranges from chief financial officers to service desks. In regard to business process automation (BPA), CIOs likely usher in this process in their own departments, so why not utilize interdepartmental collaboration as a way to inject this time- and cost-saving practice throughout the business?

AMMEX understands the value of its CIO for the entire organization, with the role serving a crucial purpose in the company’s high standards for order accuracy and overall supply chain logistics. Through the insights of AMMEX’s CIO, the company was able to achieve the following benefits:

Improved accuracy
Human error is a natural part of any business practice. However, this does not mean human error will not have extensive consequences. One misplaced figure could mean improper accounts of inventory, which then impacts fill rates and accuracy for numerous orders.

“AMMEX’s foray into BPA is another way it remains at the top of the industry.”

At AMMEX, the CIO has a hand in preventing such issues through automated workflows and reporting. Software keeps track of all orders and other movement along the supply chain, ensuring figures are accurate across all places where the data is stored. Additionally, less information falls prey to accidental exclusion, ensuring complete data. All of these advantages lend to cost containment.

More precise monitoring
Automated data collection and analytics are huge parts of modern operations, and business intelligence (BI) overall is crucial for supply chain management. Through BPA and BI as a result of that process, AMMEX has a more granular view into the supply chain from procurement to distribution. As a result, the company is able to better forecast delays and pinpoint the possible sources of these and other issues.

Increased efficiency and productivity
The CIO​’s role in ushering in BPA for the purposes of efficiency is not unfounded. Harvey Nash’s 2015 CIO Survey found 61 percent of respondents reported increasing efficiencies was the top concern in 2015. AMMEX’s use of BPA is one way the company keeps this goal top of mind.

Improvements to productivity and efficiency result from enhanced accuracy and monitoring. Fewer errors means decreased redundancy, as workers along the supply chain spend less time backtracking to find errors and fix them. Automated monitoring tools alert AMMEX managers to only the reports they need to see, allowing employees to focus on only the business operations that require improvement.

Leveraging the CIO role to remain competitive
BPA is not the only way the CIO role is influential in other departments at AMMEX. This insight has the power to help the company remain an industry leader in various ways and should not be understated. The Harvey Nash survey found CIOs worry their companies’ inability to leverage technology will cause them to fall behind in the market. However, 75 percent of respondents did not have a plan to roll out digital processes across their organizations.

While the survey put the impetus on CIOs to press for more automation and other digital workflows, AMMEX understands this is a collaborative process that requires the empowerment of the CIO role to usher in positive change. Like AMMEX’s pioneering spirit when it comes to digital marketing, ecommerce and innovative technologies like Doc-link, Vidyo and QR codes, the company’s foray into BPA is another way it remains at the top of the industry.  Join AMMEX at the top, become a distributor today!

Finishing the Glove: How does it Work?


After gloves are manufactured, they need to be finished to facilitate donning and doffing. The material of gloves often makes it difficult for users to don without some type of finishing technique. Now there are several different ways to go about finishing a glove, including polymer coating, chlorination and polyurethane finishes. Finishing the Glove: How does it Work?

Powdering

Powdered gloves, as the name implies, use a powder coating to help users don and doff disposable gloves by absorbing excess moisture on the hands. Powdering takes place following manufacturing. In the past, gloves had powdered formers, making powder a byproduct of manufacturing. Due to advancements in manufacturing technology, gloves are powdered with food-grade cornstarch, before they are taken from their formers and turned inside out. Powdered gloves are not suitable in situations where the powder could interfere with biological and chemical processes, such as chemical sealing or wound closure. Powder also damages paints and varnishes by leaving a residue behind. For this reason, manufacturers have adopted alternative ways to finish gloves.

Chlorination
Chlorination is a finishing method for powder free gloves. Manufacturers wash gloves in a chlorine gas or a solution of hypochlorite and hydrochloric acid. Gloves are then rinsed to prevent the chemical from interacting with the glove further. The solution reduces the surface tackiness of the glove and also gives it a softer texture. When used on latex, the chlorination process also reduces the amount of latex proteins, to make them less likely to cause an allergy. One thing to keep in mind is that chlorination slightly reduces the shelf life of products because the chemicals break down the glove material. This method was developed for latex gloves, but new advancements in technology have made the process available for nitrile gloves.The AMMEX Gloveworks Heavy Duty Orange Nitrile Glove is an example of a chlorinated glove.

“Finishes applied after the manufacturing process make donning and doffing easier.”

Polymer coating
The majority of disposable gloves on the market are now powder free. Applying a polymer coating is a more recent method: Manufacturers use polymers, such as silicones, acrylics and hydrogels, to make gloves easier to don. The polymer coating has less surface friction than the glove material, which makes it slip on the hand more easily. The polymer is generally applied while the glove is still on the former. Polymer coating is most frequently used on nitrile and latex. For example, AMMEX GlovePlus Black Nitrile Gloves are polymer coated.

Polyurethane
A polyurethane coating on the inside of the gloves reduces tackiness, making the glove easier to don and doff. Polyurethane is most frequently used on vinyl gloves.

Finishes allow glove users to don and doff with ease, creating a seamless experience as they change gloves. Finishes, particularly chlorination, also make the glove softer for people who need to work with their hands all day. These processes also reduce latex proteins that lead to allergies and irritation. Simply put, finishing makes disposable gloves easier and more comfortable to wear.

It is easy to add disposable gloves to your product line up. Become an AMMEX distributor to get started today.

The Trend Toward Ecommerce


The business world has changed significantly over the past decade. Ecommerce is now a crucial part of the economy, and companies that do not have an online presence will suffer. According to data from research firm eMarketer, ecommerce in the U.S. is expected to grow 14.2 percent in 2015, accounting for 7 percent of total retail sales and reaching a total of $349 billion in sales. As the years go on, online revenue will continue to take a bite out of overall retail sales. AMMEX took the right steps to stay on top of the ecommerce trend, remain ahead of the curve and helps its customers do the same. In addition to embracing ecommerce, AMMEX developed digital marketing resources to increase Web traffic and engage with customers.

Remain competitive with ecommerce

In 2015, having an ecommerce platform is crucial to maintaining a successful business. Customers expect to be able to purchase items online. They are unlikely to work with a vendor that does not provide an ecommerce solution, especially if another local vendor does allow online sales.While there will always be a place for in-store sales, customers enjoy the flexibility of online shopping. According to PricewaterhouseCoopers’ Total Retail Survey, nearly half of respondents indicated they like being able to go online whenever they want: day or night.In addition, 27 percent say they shop online because a wider variety of products are available. These days, it is common for businesses to have more inventory available online than in their physical locations. A big-box chain may have 900,000 SKUs available on its Web store. This means all mid-sized distributors that maintain traditional stores need to also have an online site to remain competitive.

Support ecommerce with digital marketing
Many companies fail to adapt to a changing marketplace and perform badly as a result. Just think about how Kodak failed to understand customers’ interest in digital cameras and continued to invest in analog film. Despite being the first company to invent a digital camera, the company filed for bankruptcy in 2012. In contrast, AMMEX recognized early on the need to develop a robust online presence. As a multinational corporation with offices that span the globe, it was necessary for AMMEX to invest in digital solutions. As a result, AMMEX has been named one of the fastest growing companies by both Puget Sound Business Journal and Inc. magazine.

Distributors that partner with AMMEX have the benefit of working with a forward-thinking supplier. AMMEX recognizes the need to support online sales with digital marketing. AMMEX leverages marketing support as a key differentiator. With the shift toward online stores and ecommerce spaces, AMMEX embraces digital marketing.

 “Digital marketing engages customers and earns their trust.” 

Along with the availability of an online store, digital marketing programs are also an important way to keep customers engaged and earn their trust. According to PwC, 56 percent of customers research a purchase by using a search engine. Moreover, customers regularly turn to social media, especially Facebook, YouTube and Twitter, to learn more about companies and their products.

For this reason, AMMEX developed digital marketing assets, which distributors use as a resource when developing their own campaigns. AMMEX provides educational videos, a blog and social channels to educate potential customers and lead them to make a purchase online.

Whether or not customers choose to make a final purchase online, the Internet figures heavily into their decision-making process. It is important for all businesses to have an online presence bolstered heavily by digital marketing efforts such as search engine optimization, social media or email campaigns. AMMEX develops resources to support distributors and help them get started with digital marketing to bring in more customers. AMMEX embraced the digital revolution head on. It is the company’s mission to help customers do the same.

Industry Trend Toward Thinner, Lighter, Low Cost


Gloves are a necessity in many industries, but the cost adds up quickly for workers who go through a lot of gloves. Some industries, such as food service or manufacturing, require more frequent glove changes than others. For this reason, the industry trend toward thinner, lighter, low cost disposable gloves, are the best choice for short duration tasks that require frequent changes.

Value driven
Businesses where Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Points (HACCP) or other regulations are a factor are required to follow strict rules to remain compliant. These rules are in place to protect the safety of workers and consumers, but they require employees to pay close attention to their activities and don and doff gloves frequently. Under HACCP, employees need to change gloves whenever they are used or torn, whenever staff begin a new task. This adds up to 20 pairs each day on average for each employee. When you consider how many employees are on each shift throughout the day at a food service establishment, the glove count grows quickly.

“Food service workers use 20 pairs of gloves each day on average.”

New technology, new trends
As manufacturing capabilities improve, it is possible to produce lighter weight gloves and still maintain the protective barrier needed. In the past, 4-5 mil gloves were the standard weight for disposable gloves. Now 3mil has become the industry standard, with the previous weight serving as the new premium grade. In addition to being lighter, these gloves have the benefit of greater flexibility and tactile sensitivity.

A growing number of industries, including automotive, janitorial, agricultural and more, are adopting the use of disposable gloves to protect workers’ hands. Occupations that traditionally did not require gloves now encourage workers to don gloves.

The need for the right glove
Not all glove decisions are solely price driven, many buyers are focused on finding the right glove for the job. According to a 2013 study from TriComB2B in partnership with the University of Dayton School of Business Administration, price dominated just 55 percent of all purchasing decisions. Product features, benefits and brand are other attributes that come into play.

For instance, many buyers in the automotive industry choose nitrile gloves over latex because the material is not as easily punctured. In addition, nitrile does not react in gasoline, as latex does. Automotive workers deal with heavy tools and sometimes sharp objects, creating a need for a heavier glove. Choosing the right glove for the job is typically more cost-effective in the long run because it results in fewer glove changes.

Many considerations go into buying disposable gloves. Cost may be a factor, but it is more important to make sure the gloves you choose are up to the specific task you need them for.
