Merger acquisition concept

Tradex International and its flagship brand AMIBITEX, a leading manufacturer of disposable gloves and personal protective equipment in the food service, janitorial and sanitation channels, announced that it has been acquired by Tradex Holdings, a vertically integrated and customer-centric company that operates under parent company HX Pro. The transaction brings Tradex and the AMIBITEX family of products back into the private sector, which means better prices, faster shipping and elite customer service for all Tradex customers.

Tradex International, founded in 1988, is a leading manufacturer and supplier of disposable gloves and personal protective equipment, primarily under the AMBITEX family of products. With offices around the United States, Tradex has built a reputation for excellence in the disposable glove market, serving a variety of industries such as janitorial, sanitation, food service, and office products.

“Today is an important day for Tradex and the AMBITEX family of brands as we are excited to welcome the legacy Tradex team to the Tradex Holdings family. Over the past few years, our team has successfully navigated and thrived through several storms, including the supply chain impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic — and we’ve come out stronger and more efficient through all of it. This transaction is the next step in our journey, and Tradex Holdings and HX Pro is the right team to usher Tradex and AMBITEX into a new era,” says Shakil Prasla, president of Tradex Holdings. 

“This change brings many benefits to Tradex’s customers and partners. Our production capacity has significantly increased to meet customers’ needs, and we have invested in modernizing our operations to better serve customers. Specifically, this includes a full data migration to more modern and efficient systems, additional warehousing capacity throughout the United States, and the restoration of Tradex’s longstanding best practices. We expect this transition to be completed by Feb. 1, 2023,” says Evan Lyons, vice president of Business Development of Tradex Holdings. “Throughout this process, we remain committed to providing consistent, reliable supply and easy ordering for our customers. We are dedicated to offering the highest quality products at competitive prices,” adds Lyons.
