A Company Visit
Our class and our English teacher visited the Foxconn company in Kutná Hora on March 22. This company is one of the global leaders in providing comprehensive IT solutions and producing customer electronics. Their main customers are e.g. Nokia, Apple, Dell or Microsoft.
Our visit started in a conference room, where we got a small snack. Operations Manager Mr John Gallagher gave us important information on his professional bio and on Foxconn history and present. As Mr Gallagher comes from Scotland, his presentation was in English. After that, Mr Jiří Kalát, an employee from Quality Assurance, showed us round the premises. We saw manufacturing facilities and a warehouse and he told us a lot about production, logistics and work safety, We will remember four most important phases of production: kitting, assembling, testing and packaging. Finally, we returned back to John and had a small chat with him.
The field trip was very useful and interesting and we learned some new words from business English.
