Earlier this month, Rhino Health Inc., the only domestic nitrile glove manufacturer, announced plans to build its largest facility in Fort Worth, Texas. According to the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce the 400,000 square foot facility will be in Majestic Fort Worth South Business Park along with a 10,000 square foot office facility.
The expansion will bring 800 new jobs to the Fort Worth area and will more than triple the production output of Rhino’s other location in New Mexico. The Navajo Nation helped Rhino Health launch operations in 2018 with a $19 million investment.
“This is a significant first step for Rhino Health to invest and grow in the Fort Worth region,” said Mark Lee, CEO of Rhino Health. “We’re grateful to the Fort Worth Chamber for helping to make our expansion into Texas seamless. We’re confident that this location offers an environment for our employees to thrive and our business to grow.”
“Fort Worth is proud to be partnering with another domestic company to shore up the supply chain for PPE materials in the future,” said Chris Strayer, Executive Vice President of Economic Development for the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce, “the Chamber worked closely with the Rhino Health executive team to facilitate the real estate search and infrastructure needs and we are confident that this location is perfectly suited for their needs.”
“It’s terrific to welcome Rhino Health LCC, and the excellent job opportunities this manufacturing facility will provide, to Fort Worth. Their mission of responsibly producing quality ‘Made in the USA’ products is a perfect fit for Fort Worth, and it will be exciting to see the glove made right here in Cowtown reach out into medical, industrial and commercial businesses across the country.” said Mayor Betsy Price.
Along with Rhino Health, Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce is actively working on manufacturing and industrial relocations and expansions in the city.
