Southern Glove announces today that it has entered into a multi-year exclusive licensing agreement with Sarco Enterprises, LLC to manufacture and sell the patent pending Sarco Impact Glove to all potential markets within the United States.
“We are very excited for the opportunity to manufacture and distribute such a groundbreaking product that fits so well with our manufacturing abilities and existing distributor relationships,” said Brent Fidler, President of Southern Glove. “We are confident that the ongoing innovation of Sarco Enterprises in conjunction with Southern Glove’s experience in the manufacturing and distribution of industrial hand protection will make for a winning combination.”
Joe Sarkies, owner of Sarco Enterprises, LLC stated “the Sarco Impact Glove is the first industrial work glove to seriously deal with the issue of injury to the back of the hand due to impact in the workplace. We are pleased and excited to have Southern Glove on board to manufacture, market and distribute our glove, not only in the oil patch but also throughout other industrial markets such as lumber and mining where serious hand injuries continue to be a problem.” In regards to the marketing potential for the glove, Brent Fidler stated “we firmly believe that we have just scratched the surface of the market for the Sarco Impact Glove in the drilling industry. The potential outside the drilling industry is even larger.”
Invented and developed by Joe Sarkies, the Sarco Impact Glove has been utilized in the drilling industry across the United States for more than two years. With the cooperation of a large drilling contractor the glove was developed with the intent of helping reduce the potential and severity of injuries sustained to the back of the hand during operations on drilling rigs. The glove uses a patent pending technology involving a multi-layer foam padding to help shield the back of the hand from impacts while maintaining excellent dexterity and comfort.
