George At Asda Visit Fashion Enter
Yesterday we were joined by a group of employees from George at ASDA here at the Fashion Enter Factory. The purpose of their visit was to teach them how an ethical factory in the UK operates and what they should be looking out for when they visit manufacturers.
With the ability to offer a hands on insight into the manufacturing of garments here in the UK, the group of employees had the opportunity to tour our factory with CEO Jenny Holloway, with input from our highly valued members of staff. From inital pattern cutting to quality control checks they learned how their own work impacts each stage of production and what they can do to help ensure a swift operation.
Throughout the tour Jenny was on hand to inform the group of the health and safety procedures in place here at Fashion Enter, the equipment used, what makes us a SMETA approved factory, issues that can be found and how they are resolved.
