A Visit to Tai Tee Glass Factory in Kampar

by

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.

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

Screwing the frame

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

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.

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.
