Hartalega, the first and largest worldwide producer of nitrile gloves,

runs its central manufacturing facility in Sepang, Malaysia. The facility produces and supplies billions of protective gloves every year for healthcare, industrial and scientific use. The company manages a busy onsite warehousing and distribution facility which is expanding to keep up with projected growth.



Hartalega requires reliable material handling equipment to manage stock at its manufacturing facility to help in the first step of distributing its products around the world. Its products are sold under some of the leading brand names in healthcare, which require timely distribution to match the quality of the product.


Hartalega began working with Crown Equipment in 2007, and has Crown at the centre of its warehousing operations with the use of RD 5700 Series reach trucks. The RD Series, a narrow-aisle reach truck, has helped Hartalega boost its storage capability thanks to its double-deep capable pantograph mechanism that allows access to pallets positioned in the rack two deep. The two companies have formed a strong relationship thanks to Crown’s ability to provide the required uptime for the busy operation and tailor equipment to Hartalega’s requirements.
