A GROUP of 40 students from SMK Pendamaran Jaya, Klang visited a glove manufacturing factory in Bestari Jaya, Selangor recently.
The visit was part of a Teach For Malaysia (TFM) project known as Project ID: Impianku Destinasiku, to expose students on the glove production process at the factory, which is under Hartalega Holdings Bhd.
The students were given a briefing and then taken on a tour of the state-of-the-art production lines, biomass energy plant and water treatment facility.
They also had a chance to experience firsthand the act of conducting a water-tight quality assurance test with gloves made at the plant.
Hartalega Sdn Bhd director Kuan Vin Seung said the company was always keen to lend its support for such tours by students.“It was wonderful to spend time with the students and see their enthusiasm in learning more about the industry.
“We are confident that these individuals will go far and we look forward to more opportunities where we can give back and do our part for the community,” he said.
The question and answer session with Hartalega’s management team and staff members proved to be the highlight of the day.
During the event, the students gained an insight and knowledge regarding the industry.
“Building a strong relationship with corporate organisations is fundamental to the success of Project ID, and we appreciate the effort that Hartalega has put in to help our students develop their potential”, said TFM fellow Cheah Kok Hin.
Project ID: Impianku Destinasiku was the brainchild of TFM fellows Kelvin Tan, Joyce Ching and Cheah Kok Hin.
The producton plant tour was part of the initiative to raise awareness on the glove manufacturing sector and the various career options available in the industry.
