We do not only protect our clients but also
our community and our planet.
Evergreen Latex is a family owned and run business which focuses on the manufacture and supply of latex and nitrile gloves in the most sustainable and eco-friendly manner possible.
We were established in 1992 as South Africa’s first medical glove manufacturer with only 20 employees. Over the years we have been fortunate to see the company grow to around 120 employees as well as expanding our product offering to over 200 different medical disposables. While the core of our business is manufacturing and supplying gloves, we also source additional medical disposable items required by our clients.
Family and women in the workforce are very important to us which is why most of our staff are female and many of them have been with us for multiple generations seeing their children and grandchildren follow in their footsteps. Our staff are often the breadwinners for their families so providing a stable work environment for them is one of our top priorities.
Our team members really are the magic behind our success. Here are a few highlights of some of our incredible team members.
