Amr Elsayed Attya

Laboratory and quality control chemist at Methanex Corporation


I have the knowledge to perform regular and special maintenance on laboratory equipment and execute proper protocols in the event of an accident or emergency. My detail for accuracy, flexibility, self-motivation, analytical thinking and problems solving coupled with the ability to learn new techniques. My ability to work independently and/or an effective team member will surely be a benefit to the team at Laboratory. I’m certain that a meeting would give us an opportunity to discuss my special training in this field. Please contact me at +201006524412, or email me at amr_attya@hotmail.com.
