Dear Valued Stakeholders,

Welcome and thank you for visiting the Top Glove website.

The Top Glove journey began in 1991 with only 1 factory, 1 glove production line and 100 employees. Today, we have transformed into an international business attaining 26% of the world market share for rubber gloves with production bases in Malaysia, China, Thailand and marketing offices in these countries as well as Germany, USA and Brazil. As the world’s largest manufacturer of gloves, we presently have 45 factories, 700 production lines and a production capacity of 78.7 billion pieces of gloves per annum.

Having been in business for 3 decades this 2020, we are a young and dynamic company.  Our continued focus on innovation, digitalisation and improvements in our production processes and services continue to bear fruit as we deliver an impressive performance year after year.

Prospects for Top Glove and the glove industry remain promising. The global demand for gloves is growing steadily at 10% to 12% per annum driven by strong market fundamentals.

We are guided by our core values which include foremost, working in line with our Business Ethics of Honesty, Integrity and Transparency and bonded by our Corporate Values Respect, Integrity, Value, Empowerment and Relationship, represented by the acronym R.I.V.E.R.  We believe that health truly is wealth and practise Top Glove’s 5 Quality Wells: Clean Well, Eat Well, Work Well, Exercise Well and Sleep Well daily, so we remain fit and well-positioned to contribute positively and compete effectively.

Our journey towards excellence has only just begun. We have set our sights even higher and aim to capture 30% of the world market by year end 2020 and to ultimately become a Fortune Global 500 company by 2040.

Following aggressive organic expansion in nitrile glove capacity, we also secured our position as the world’s largest manufacturer of nitrile gloves, in addition to being the world’s largest manufacturer of natural rubber gloves and surgical gloves.

Top Glove emerged the best performing stock on both the Kuala Lumpur Composite Index (KLCI) and the Straits Times Index (STI), with our share price having increased by 263% and 268%, year-to-date, respectively and we rank amongst the elite Top 15 companies on Bursa Malaysia and SGX.  

Our record high results are a testament to our strong foundation which is decades in the making and comprises a committed and capable team, as well as ongoing improvement initiatives.

It is a tremendous privilege to be in a position to help protect people in Malaysia and throughout the world from this dangerous virus, and we will continue to work safely and efficiently to produce as many gloves as possible at this critical time.

Top Glove has earmarked RM5 million for CSR initiatives, which will include assisting those affected by the pandemic.  The Group’s earlier donations included 3 million pieces of medical gloves for Malaysia, as well as another 3 million gloves to China jointly with the Malaysian government and Malaysian glovemakers. 

The Group also made an ex-gratia payment to both its local and foreign workers, in appreciation of their contributions in meeting the surge in glove demand.

Going forward, Top Glove envisions extremely robust quarters ahead.  With a year's worth of orders in the pipeline, Top Glove is confident of delivering solid results not only for FY2020, but FY2021 as well.

 

Thank you.

TOP GLOVE, TOP QUALITY, TOP EFFICIENCY
