In 1988, the widening fear of AIDS, hepatitis and other infectious diseases created an increased demand for latex exam gloves. Manufacturers could not keep pace with the overwhelming demand and as a result, many U.S. distributors were without the resources to satisfy their customer's needs.
DASH was established to address this demand by providing latex examination gloves to the medical and dental markets. DASH began importing gloves from Malaysia, the world's leading latex glove manufacturing country. Shortly thereafter, DASH invested in glove manufacturing facilities to ensure consistency in quality and supply for its customers.
To date, DASH works closely with its network of manufacturing partners to bring the latest advancements in glove technology to a growing number of markets, for the specific needs of our customers.
