Roland Williams, an NFL veteran, has secured a multiyear production deal worth more than $400M annually for his company to supply nitrile examination gloves. His company, J2 Medical Supply, is an MBE certified manufacturer and importer of high-quality medical solutions including nitrile examination gloves, disposable non-sterile apparel, N95 and KN95 masks, Covid Test Kits, crutches, among others.

According to a statement by the company, J2 Medical Supply’s award-winning product, the J2-100 Advanced Premium Nitrile Examination Glove, has already received favorable reviews and usage by some of the biggest names in healthcare and government.

“The J2-100 Advanced is an extremely high-quality glove that is now our exclusive glove in the CMSR,” said Edward M. Schwarz, Ph.D. Director, Center for Musculoskeletal Research (CMSR), University of Rochester Medical Center.

A publication by the Becker Hospital Review notes that demand for nitrile examination gloves nearly doubled in 2021 in the United States. However, access to the exam gloves since the pandemic broke out has become a challenge. Data shows that the global shortage for nitrile exam gloves exceeds 215 billion units per year.

“The J2-100 Advanced Premium Nitrile Examination Glove provides a winning solution for clients looking to reduce costs, access a high-quality product, while meeting their Tier 1 & Tier 2 supplier diversity goals,” said Williams, according to the statement. “Honored to join my partners in becoming an even more reliable and robust teammate for healthcare, government and business clients committed to economic equity within their supply chain.”

J2 Medical Supply is headquartered in Valencia, California, and has grown to become a national leader in the Nitrile Examination Glove sector.
