Pall is a large American corporation that manufactures filter parts, my particular job is to corrugate and assemble them, then pack, in preparation for dispatch. It has a fast paced production line, and involves work by hand or machinery, including large industrial ovens, hotplates and shrink wrappers.
We work in cells at different work stations usually – more... all of us working on the same product/s from start being corrugation, through to assembly, then completion being packing. There is a variety of colleagues both male and female, most are permanent and have been working at the factory many years, a lot of others work on a temporary contract term with the onsite agency.
