Company Information

In the evening of 23 November 2016 (local time), a fire broke out in the
Malaysian production site of examination and protective gloves (Latexx
Partners). For safety reasons the operation of several adjacent production sites
was stopped and the sites were evacuated. The fire was extinguished within a few
hours and nobody was hurt.

The fire damage affects the main storage for formers used for the glove
production and the mechanical workshop, which are located next to one of the
seven production buildings on the factory premises. At present, experts are
investigating the cause of the fire as well as the amount of property damage. An
insurance exists for the property damage and the costs of the business
interruption. 

All production lines at the site, with the exception of one production area that
is located right next to the source of fire, have restarted operation and
supplies are continued.
