We seek a hands-on, people-centric to take charge of the operation and run it as if it is their own business.  This is a “best of both worlds” type of opportunity in that you will manage a fairly small plant, yet as part of a much larger company with many locations, you will have the big-company benefits and incentive programs, including employee shares.  

The ideal candidate will be a team-based manager, and will love to interact and participate on the plant floor, with continuous improvement being part of your daily life. A strong plastics or manufacturing background with a team building background is a must.

  • You will be a hands-on participant in defining operational objectives and direction for this part of the company.
  • In conjunction with company executives and key managers, the Plant Manager will establish budgets and strategic plans to accomplish corporate objectives for growth and profitability.
  • Establish metrics for key areas of measurement and hold teams accountable to achieve or exceed these goals.
  • Implement Lean Manufacturing and drive continuous improvement as a way of life in the operations, including constantly improving metrics in key areas.
  • Manage the P&L, driving all operations to meet or exceed budgets and strategic plans.

Qualifications for Plant Manager 

  • A BS Degree is preferred, but we will consider all applicants regardless of education. 
  • 5 years of operations management experience in plastics or manufacturing.  
  • Strong technical knowledge of rates, materials, tooling, materials, and processes to be able to communicate effectively with both employees and customers.  
  • Strong, metric-driven personality and methodology, and must drive the business for continual improvement of key metrics.
  • Strong financial knowledge with strong budgeting skills, Proven P&L experience, and strong Strategic Planning experience.
