Salary Range: $60,000 to $75,000/yr. base salary
This privately-owned company is a rapidly-growing, global manufacturer of food and animal feed additives. This person will be the plant manager in charge of a ~20-person animal feed additives manufacturing plant that uses spray drying, evaporation and centrifugation; the site also has a bagging and packaging area. This person will be responsible for compliance in the areas of safety, product quality and overall production and maintenance within the plant. The plant runs on a 24/5 schedule (Sunday through Thursday) and is currently at 65% capacity. This person will have the opportunity to move up, within 3-5 years, into management roles at bigger and more complex facilities. This company also offers a specialized management course that they offer to their employees and this person would have the opportunity to participate in that as well. This company is based in Lexington, KY and employs about 4,500 worldwide (~80 manufacturing facilities).
B.S. degree ideal, may consider a non-degree candidate with requisite experience. 5+ years of overall manufacturing experience, ideally out of a process that involves powders handling, but realistically, this company will consider a strong leader out of just about any manufacturing background. The key for this role is really that leadership ability – they are looking for someone who has been in a production or operations management role and who is looking for that next step. This position is bonus eligible and some relocation assistance is available as well.
