A sunny day in the morning is the perfect phrase to describe the weather when Platinum Ceramics welcomed 3rd year of architecture students from UK Petra to the oldest yet still effectively functional factory, Karangpilang Plant. As usual, Platinum Ceramics team began the session by sharing about product knowledge with Mr. Adrick, then we divided the students into 2 groups consist of 17 students each, with each group led by unit manager of the visited production unit.
Guided by the tour leader, students started to get astonish as they watched big machine setup that was stretched from crushing to sorting process where the final product is ready to be sold. Anyone would be amazed to watch a mixture material then become shiny and beautiful rectangular shaped material in a matter of hours. Even the team still got the sensation if they had to do the tricky part of climbing the ladder above tile moving line. You can feel it too by looking below pictures to see how good the moments were:
