Great opportunity in a perfect location – all this is missing is YOU!  We are seeking a leader, a teacher, a mentor, a manager: a transformational, energetic lightning rod personality who can take this small company to the next level.  Your title is negotiable in this family-like non-union 3 shifts plant.  We are looking for a candidate who is on their way up the small corporate ladder.  Maybe you are a production manager at a medium to large plant or a plant manager at small to medium facility and are ready to have the entire group learn from your leadership.
The location of this opportunity is advantageous for the candidate who loves sunshine & warm weather of the southeastern USA.  Great community to raise a family and there is always something to do.  You are close to major family attractions & outdoor events – festivals, camping, boating, & water fun.  Plenty to do inside at the museums, theaters, & great shopping areas along with fantastic world class cuisine.  You can find everything in this cosmopolitan area and yet be a short drive from natural beauty & relaxation.

Excellent communication skills – both written & spoken – are needed as you will be the leader, teacher, mentor, & director of each employee in this small plant.  Solid working knowledge & ability to implement TQM, MRP, JIT, Lean, budget, costing, capital projects is needed to ensure we are operating with greatest quality & least cost possible.
The core function of this position will be to teach & train your replacements – you are not going to be here forever!  This is not a turn-around situation, but a recognized need for that transformational leader who can design the plan, teach the plan, and manage the implementation of the plan and take this company to the next level under your pilotage.
Daily, you’ll interact will all departments & managers/supervisors.  Every department will report to you.  You will be involved in every aspect of this company as you teach & implement best practices, lower costs, increase quality, & production speed.  You will use every aspect of your education, experience, & influence to make this company better.
There are not many opportunities in the business world to that offer the freedom of this type of challenge in such a great location with a good salary of $90,000-$110,000 & benefits & paid relocation.  This is your moment to make a permanent connection with a like-minded group of talented individuals who welcome your influence.
