World Supply Chain Disarray

World supply chains in disarray!

Here we go again. There are now serious disruptions in international supply chains as well as raw material shortages. Raw material prices are high and unstable and shipping is getting very expensive and with big delays and uncertainties!

At Eureka we build stock of all critical components to secure supply and we stick to same high quality raw materials despite the increase in price.

In case of unexpected disruptions, please make sure you have apropriate stock levels sooner rather than later!

15-1 Assembly Nitrile 2 Full

Stay dry and stay cool!

With the recent rainy weather here in Sweden and (hopefully) a warm summer just around the corner, we are reminded how important it is to keep your hands dry during long periods of work. Whether it be in an oily workshop or in a garden, our 15-1 Assembly Nitrile 2 Full (Pictured) is the perfect assembly glove to keep moisture and oils away from your skin while maintaining optimal finger dexterity.

For those hot summer days, stay cool with Eureka’s Cool series gloves! Ultra thin, high performance materials, with superior wicking capabilities makes these gloves a no-brainer during the summer months.

For dry environments go with SupraCoat – Eureka’s own special coating blend optimized for dry grip

for oily or wet environments go with Nitrile – Eureka optimized for wet/oily grip

Stay cool, stay protected!

1 Year celebration at new office

Celebrating 1 year at our new office

Time flies when you’re having fun. Thats the usual saying which doesn’t really apply to this past year but time has flown quickly nonetheless.

Last year we took a big step in our facilities  with our new combined warehouse, office, and lab, as we at Eureka are constantly pushing the boundaries to make our products and services ever better.

For 2021 we have many interesting products in the works which will be launching during 2nd half of the year as well as a big ongoing push for digital services!

Stay tuned and stay safe!

Tire Change Vibration

Easter is here and it’s soon time to change tires!

Do you feel numbness in your hands after your shift? This could very well be caused by operating harmful vibrating tools without proper protection or precaution.

Keep your hands safe by following these simple steps:

  1. Keep your hands warm
  2. Rotate work tasks – minimize exposure
  3. Use modern power tools
  4. Use the correct Eureka glove

Specifically for impacting tools like those found in a tire chaning worskhop we hihgly recommend the 15-1 Transient Vibration or the 15-4 Flexi Vibration if you also need moderate cut protection.

Hand arm vibration syndrome and vibration induced white finger syndrome are serious and very real. This is especially problematic as the use of incorrect vibration reducing gloves can accelerate the damage exponentially. Eureka’s line of vibration reducing gloves provide an unmatched level of protection when using impacting and/or vibration tools. Our unique glove-to-tool matching concept marks the beginning of a paradigm shift in personal vibration protection by providing you with the correct protective glove to match the frequency range of the tool you are using.

With advanced measuring equipment, a carefully developed range of unique vibration-reducing gloves and an ever-growing database, we at Eureka have developed a deep understanding of the risks of vibrating and impacting tools.

A rocky recovery

[UPDATED]
Much of the global manufacturing is quickly moving out of the doldrums and gearing up significantly! The recovery is of course most welcome by all but it is not well synchronized and we expect to see some major imbalances. In the past months there has been a massive increases in freight costs from China that is only slowly declining, an appreciating Chinese currency, a Brexit not quite as expected, big increases (40-200%) in nitrile, latex and PU cost and now we see fast price increases in textile materials too (15+%).

So what can we do?

Eureka is ramping up production and keep good a stock level and is following relevant markets to mitigate abrupt changes.

We also strongly recommend our customers to rebuild stock in time and be prepared for price changes so that the entire supply chain is prepared for the better times that we all expect and long for.
