We are looking for a Production Manager / Operations Manager to help with change and growth of a rapidly growing company. This is an interim role which will last between 3 to 5 months and has the possibility for a direct hire. Though a temporary position, you will be given the autonomy to make changes and the support to back up your efforts. You will be assigned to directly manage one or two value streams including machining presses, warehousing, shipping and receiving. As Interim Manager you will report to the Director of Operations and their typical team size will be between three and eight people.

This Production / Operations Management position will require a minimum of fifteen years manufacturing experience with a minimum of ten years managing at least five people directly (such as Team Leaders, Supervisors and/or Functional Managers) and minimally fifty people indirectly.
