Quality Gloves with Austrian Know-How
Sempermed's promise of high-quality surgical, examination and personal protective gloves
Confidence in a brand is essential, especially when it comes to medical and protective gloves, since one has to be able to completely rely upon them for protection when working in sensitive or high-risk environments. Therefore, it is important to know precisely where your gloves originate, which company manufactured them, under which conditions they were made, and whether you can trust in the quality promised by the manufacturer.
Made in Austria
Sempermed Surgical Gloves
With the "Sustainably Manufactured in Europe" quality seal on our packaging, customers can be certain that the high Austrian standards of safety and sustainability are met in the manufacturing of our surgical gloves.
Since 1920, we have developed and manufactured surgical gloves in our production site in Wimpassing, Austria. Our European know-how, an environmentally aware high-tech production and comprehensive quality management guarantee maximum safety, quality and reliability.
The "Sustainably Manufactured in Europe" seal
For more than 100 years, we have developed and manufactured surgical gloves in Europe. This century-long experience we have gained is of course also applied in our manufacturing site in Kamunting, where we develop and produce innovative, skin-friendly and sustainably manufactured products like our Green Glove. Have a look at our "Sustainably Manufactured in Europe" portfolio.
What is behind the “Sustainably Manufactured in Europe” quality seal?
We are committed to sustainable growth and how it affects future generations. For this reason, we have embedded sustainability in our strategic corporate objectives and have implemented stringent standards. The basis of our group-wide sustainability policy is our Code of Conduct. Our comprehensive vision of sustainability is built upon adherence to all valid guidelines and standards with respect to employees and society, resource management, environmental and health protection, supplier management and sustainable innovation management. We ensure compliance with these high standards through appropriate management systems, external audits and certifications.
For our products, this means we manufacture them in a sustainable manner and adhere to the principles of ethical and social responsibility with respect to human rights and working conditions. We observe the International Labour Organisation (ILO) guidelines and ensure compliance with Amfori BSCI's extensive certification measures.

The seal stands for:

- Reliability of compliance with European standards
- The use of renewable energies in glove production
- Innovative manufacturing processes
Sempermed surgical gloves are fully anatomically shaped
The shape is of paramount importance when it comes to wearer comfort in surgical gloves. Many surgical gloves are manufactured using partially anatomical porcelain moulds. This unnatural finger figuration quickly leads to fatigue in the fingers and hand – especially during prolonged wear or intensive use. For this reason, we only use fully anatomical moulds for our surgical gloves that have been made especially for us. The slightly curved fingers and forward-facing thumb correspond to the natural position of the hand, and thus guarantee optimum wearer comfort and the best possible fit.

Examination & Personal Protective Gloves
Our century-long expertise we have gained at Sempermed is not only reflected in our products that are made in Austria, but is also applied at our subsidiary Latexx Partners at our manufacturing site in Kamunting, Malaysia. While we solely produce surgical gloves in Austria, examination and personal protective gloves are manufactured in Malaysia, however, with Austrian know-how. This know-how is retrieved from our research and development performed in Wimpassing and is used to develop and produce innovative, skin-friendly and more sustainably manufactured examination and personal protective gloves, such as our Green Glove.
High quality gloves since 1920
Sempermed is well-known for its high-quality gloves manufactured using Austrian know-how.
