Our client is a full-service custom manufacturing company with a diversified client base. The company is highly profitable, with a strong financial balance sheet and offers a wide variety of services for both metals and plastics. Located in the Greater Cleveland area, the company is known for its outstanding equipment and technological advantages. The company goes beyond manufacturing to offer design assistance and often turnkey solutions for its customers.
The time has come to upgrade the leadership team and bring in an accomplished Operations professional to turn the company into the even more profitable organization. Candidates that have a strong operations experience in manufacturing of low-volume, highly complex equipment or have worked with a contract manufacturer are ideal. One must have demonstrated the ability to drive profitability and improve customer service. A process driven leader who can bring order to an organization that has succeeded despite little process is a must. A Lean or Six-Sigma or Lean Six-Sigma background is ideal.
The position will have great visibility within the organization and one must be financially astute (i.e., able to read and understand a balance sheet). Ideally, the candidate will be an engineer/operations guru with an MBA.
Our client will offer highly competitive compensation and also the stability that comes from a company in business for over 25 years. The missing piece is this leadership role to drive growth. With great financial resources backing the company, the opportunity is significant.
