I have been extremely busy with my full time job lately. I had to go on visits to contract manufacturers that manufacture apparel products for my company that in turn exports them to European countries. My current job profile now a days includes trying to get maximum output from the finishing unit of my company, quality assurance of the goods produced in our production unit as well as other contract manufacturers.

This I think is a big achievement in itself seeing the fact that some of our previous quality inspections failed in t he first time although I came to rescue and got all the finishing work again to enable it to pass in the second inspection without any further failure and embarrassment.
