Watson introduces new disposable Grease Monkey gloves


In April 1918, John Watson and Wayne Stanley started a small business selling hand-crafted gloves to Vancouver’s dock workers.

Today, almost 100 years later, Watson Gloves says it has grown across Canada.

“We are among the country’s leaders of distributing hand protection. With close to a century of experience, Watson Gloves is Canada’s single source for hand protection at work, at home, at play.”

Watson Gloves says its team of glove specialists gets tremendous satisfaction from working with customers to find the perfect hand protection for just about any task imaginable.

“Whether we source our gloves from the world’s finest manufacturers, or hand-craft them in our local factory, every pair of gloves we sell has been selected from top-of-the-line materials, design and craftsmanship,” it says.

Watson Gloves boasts that its Grease Monkey brand has taken the disposable market to a whole new level of hand protection.

The company says it introduced a black, eight-mm nitrile glove to the automotive industry and it proved to be a runaway success. Next came a thinner, five-mm disposable nitrile glove.

“Again, we couldn't keep these in stock.”

“After listening to our customers we have added a blue 15 mm heavyweight powder-free blue latex glove” Watson says.

It goes on to say heavy-duty natural rubber latex offers excellent puncture and tear resistance. Its textured surface offers a better grip in wet and oily applications and the 11-inch extended rolled cuff provides added wrist protection. They can be used in the janitorial, automotive or mechanical repair industries and are available at automotive and industrial supply companies.
