The company’s senior manufacturing manager Chan Siao Yun handed the gloves over to Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow at Komtar.
Chow thanked Top Glove and said the donation, including 30,000 clinical gloves, would be handed over in stages to the frontliners battling the Covid-19 threat statewide.
“Penang is keen to ensure that they have enough personal protective equipment like face masks and rubber gloves when they are at work,” he said after the handover ceremony on Thursday.
Also present were Chow’s political secretary Teh Lai Heng and Federation of Manufacturers Penang chairman Datuk Dr Ooi Eng Hock.
On March 25, Top Glove also donated 70,000 rubber gloves to be handed over to frontliners from state departments.
In a separate presentation function, Chow received 16,000 face masks from Buddhist Triple Wisdom Hall’s Venerable Chuk Mor Foundation.
Foundation chairman Datuk Tony Khor handed over the boxes of face masks.
