Company wins top approval in “Healthcare: Gloves” category of prestigious international award


Shah Alam, Monday, 15 March 2021 Top Glove is pleased to announce that it was recently named ‘Brand of the Year’ in the Healthcare: Gloves category at the 2020 to 2021 World Branding Awards, which features a judging process that is mainly based on consumer participation. This marks the first time the glovemaker is receiving this prestigious recognition, and is a testament to its position as a leading national tier brand in the glove industry.

Organised by the World Branding Forum, a global non-profit organisation dedicated to advancing branding standards for the good of the branding community as well as consumers, the Awards recognises and celebrates some of the best global and national brands for their work and achievements. Winners are uniquely judged through three streams: Brand Valuation, Consumer Market Research, and Public Online Voting, whereby 70 percent of the scoring process comes from public participation.

Top Glove’s Managing Director, Dato’ Lee Kim Meow, says: “Top Glove has always believed in doing well by doing good and we have remained steadfast in our commitment to our customers around the world, providing them with consistently high quality gloves at efficient low cost. We wish to extend our deepest thanks to our customers who have supported us and voted for us. We will continue doing our best to ensure that our lifesaving gloves reach those who need it the most.

“More importantly, we dedicate this recognition to our 21,000 men and women at Top Glove, whose commitment and diligence have made it possible for us to continue serving our customers, keeping them protected, particularly during a pandemic. Towards this, we are continuously improving and enhancing our employee value proposition to ensure the continued happiness, wellbeing, and safety of our workforce.”

Top Glove was named “Brand of the Year” alongside 11 other Malaysian brands in the National Tier. The National Award is presented to the very top brands in each participating country at the awards. These are brands that are household names in their home country that have been judged to be truly exceptional.

The 12th edition of the prestigious World Branding Award saw over 400 brands from more than 45 countries named “Brand of the Year” after they were nominated by over 250,000 consumers across the globe.

Earlier this year, the glove manufacturer garnered an award for Notable Achievement in Environmental Performance at the prestigious Prime Minister’s Hibiscus Award 2019/2020, a recognition of the Company’s commitment to environmental protection in Malaysia; driven by its leadership through a board representation on sustainability initiatives and governance.
