Best Manufacturing prides itself on providing solutions for its customers. So when the company tested a new glove that exceeded the technical requirements of one of the nationâ€™s leading automakers, they were puzzled when employees failed to adopt the glove. The solution was all about glove size.
Working with the procurement supervisor at one of the automakerâ€™s midwestern plants, Best introduced the Zorb-ItÂ® glove for testing. The Zorb-ItÂ® glove outperformed the competitorâ€™s glove by three to one on wear, but more important, its durability in the laundry was significantly better â€” only 13 percent of the Zorb-ItÂ® gloves had to be scrapped in the laundry versus 65 percent of the competitorâ€™s gloves.
