The Factory has been preparing for the new Asos Stitching Academy to start in July – An amazing space (if I do say so myself) has been left dedicated to the project which over-looks the whole factory! Students will be able to work with a view of production itself which will be so beneficial! They will be able to monitor every single process and further carry it out for themselves up in the mezzanine!
We have also recently had audits take place by Asos AND River Island – In which we passed with flying colors! The Factory has become such a organised environment and is also working to further improve it’s efficiency! It’s amazing to think how much has happened considering we only moved in in January. To recap, we have had the Creative Skillset campaign, the filming for Remploy staff, visits from The Prince’s Trust, an open day, apprenticeship teaching days as well as visits from major buyers such as River Island, Asos and Marks and Spencer…all in a matter of 5 Months!
Also at The Factoryour ex-Remploy staff which have also improved a incredible amount.We have had Nigel improve from 25 Labels in a day to a whopping 442 labels a day which is a incredible achievement! A lovely addition to The Factory.
We can also welcome our new Assistant Manager Tracy who has been running her own Factory in South Africa and has an amazing knowledge of Quality control and improving efficiency’s.
Forever growing and looking forward to a exciting future !
