The Medicom Story

When Medicom founder Ronald Reuben was just 23 years old, a conversation with a friend changed the course of his life. From that conversation, Mr. Reuben learned that the AIDS crisis had created an urgent need for personal protective equipment for healthcare workers. Following his entrepreneurial instinct and desire to make a difference, he immediately set out to develop high-quality medical examination gloves under the SafeTouch brand.

Commitment to Healthcare Professionals

Demand for SafeTouch gloves grew quickly and Mr. Reuben soon bought his own factory. He purchased state-of-the-art equipment, traveled the world to source the highest quality raw materials and hired leading scientific experts to design and engineer the most reliable personal protective equipment on the market. That unwavering commitment to quality, reliability and continuous innovation earned Medicom the trust of healthcare professionals worldwide.
