How We Work

how we work

Namat delivers on the promise of quality, while promoting local manufacturing. Once orders are received at Namat’s centers, the team commits to understand the requirements of the business, then seeks to create additional value, by advising on any alternations, with the end customer in mind.

Production orders are then processed and completed with standardized and precise finishing, on time and on budget.

Namat’s network of tailoring and embroidery centers is fully equipped to deliver on all types of requests.

Namat's Cycle

The Range of Programs

Each individual who is part of the Namat community receives ongoing training. We cover four main areas for professional and personal growth trajectories, to ensure unparalleled quality assurance, across the production cycle.

Technical trainings

    After several years of offering technical training to our employees through sequential contracts with renowned Turkish tailors, today Namat’s team and dedicated trainers conduct technical training in-house and on-the-job. This has resulted in increased productivity levels for the entire team and workforce, with productivity still increasing. The technical trainings cover the basics and most complex processes in the production cycle.

    Lean Management Processes

    Through quality assurance training programs, Namat aims at ensuring a lean management model in every center. Following the Four Principles methodology

    This contributes to improving workplace efficiency and productivity. As a result, and due to its commitment to continuous improvement, Namat received the KAIZEN Award for Excellence in 2018.

    Since the filming of this video, the brand Nesma Embroidery transformed into Namat... At Namat, we follow the same principles.

    The Lean Management Process covers the entire production cycle, through these steps:

    • The KAIZEN culture has been put in place, with self-control tools, to support the team in assessing and improving their performance on a continuous basis
    • The customer places the order, creating a pull for materials from the supplier. Production then begins using the First in First out (FIFO) principle.
    • Production is controlled by a series of interconnected tools and principles, which contribute to continuous flow of materials, respecting cycle time standards (Daily Direction Setting - DDS), for an ongoing improvement on performance and culture
    • The HEIJUNKA box model has been adopted, which breaks down production orders into hourly or daily KANBANs, which organize the work in each production line
    • The warehouse layout has been organized in a systematic way, to enable the preparation of materials to be used in production in advance, reducing inefficient walking distances for employees
    • Procurement boards are in place for employees to track availability of materials for each production order
    • The Milk Run system aids in replenishing materials and delivering production orders to the right working stations, based on a schedule and in the right quantities
    • When orders are complete, the packing process is organized and tracked, to ensure the seamless delivery of every order.

    Soft skills training

    Employees receive soft skills, ethics, managerial, and leadership training from various training providers, including: Nesma Holding Company, Nesma Training Center, Education for Employment (EFE) program, and Rozana AlBanawi.
