First of all, Merry Xmas to all! This is how I spent the weekend before heading back to KL after Xmas.
Thanks to my dad, I managed to get a chance to have a peek into one of SSG (Singapore Safety Glass – the company my dad is working for) biggest clients in Malaysia, located near to Mambang Diawan in Kampar. It’s just a few hundred meters further than the General Hospital.
Without further ado: (don’t expect much though)
I didn’t take the main entrance photo though, lol. Here is the stack of ready assembled glasspane with frame.
Side view of the frame
All the raw materials lying around lol
Well assembled small sized window pane
Window to heaven… lol
Frames came with the fitted rubbers
Yeap, more glass =D
The workers assembling the frames with the window / glass pane
So first step is to be able to carry the heavy glass pane without breaking it
Then, you have to fit the glass into the frame (duh)
Then assemble the other side of the frame and screw it
They actually fitted some plastic runners before fitting in the glass pane. I didn’t capture it into photograph though.
Then, hammer the sides to make it even.
Then, tape the corners (cos they are sharp)
Then the assembling process is done!
Here is the zoom up on the tools used, as you can see they actually dip the tip of the screw into the oil, and also they used the plastic fittings as mentioned earlier.
Also, glue gun is used
… to stick the wood with the mirror
Here are the rest of the pics. This photo shows the compartment used to store those goods that the buyer have no money to pay for so they hold the stocks here. Pity.
Candid shots of the power lady behind the factory
Let’s enter the worker’s “dorm” — made of Container (apparently they don’t want to stay in a proper house as it’s far from the factory. Woot.
Even got karaoke set =D For their leisure time if not sure bored to death
Off to the kitchen
… and a collection of fridges
Public bath for the workers
Drinking water (the owner refills it every week with cleaned water, so nice)
Quickshots inside the factory (damn hot inside @_@)
A few quick office shots when she allowed us to enter
Projects they worked on (non exhaustive list)
That is pretty much all. =D Hope you enjoyed the tour.
