The firs week, 22 nd February,2021, upon arrival my colleague I were welcome but was made to wait for the administrator, Mr. Ofori-Addo Richmond who was not around by then. We met the production supervisor madam Joyce Addiah who took us to the production floor where production was going on.
We met master Richmond the following day. He spoke to us, gave us comprehensive information about
the organization and also introduced us to some of the staff within the production department who
could assist us in achieving our goal.
As at that moment, the company was running a production of nose mask for the Ministry of Health.
He made us understand that, that was the current production ongoing and also needed to be given all the
attention due to the deadline.
We were then taken to the packing section of the production floor from the label distribution point where the labels were cut and distributed to the machinist to operate on.
Their main production was halted and it took us three (3) weeks to complete the nose mask production
the day we came.
With the other two (2) weeks left, production was switched to from the nose mask to the core products of the company.
We had the chance to learn from the designers who taught us how to make designs and sketch them as
well, cutting department headed by Mr. Ebenezer Eshun. We taught how to measure and cut varieties of garment. I had the chance to learn about male garment which I was having as a challenge.
I had the chance operate the machines in sewing garments and other things I was guided on what I had no knowledge of and was also giving the chance to champion it.
I had the chance operate some specialized machines at the finishing side. Some were the knitting machine, over lock machine, button hole machine and button fixing machine. They have other
specialized machines at the finishing end like flat lock machine, five and four thread machines which do the sewing and the finishing works at the same time.
We were giving the chance to produce garments for ourselves which I had the chance to produce some number of shirts and shorts.
I am looking forward to another opportunity to take another internship in this same organization to enhance my kills and also build more capacity through the knowledge exhibited in the company.
It was an environment filled with people who are passionate in their work and fashion in general, approachable and ready to transfer knowledge and social.
