Northern Ohio area Production Supervisor Search #3105
This manufacturing client operates three US manufacturing sites. Its northern Ohio plant is the largest site and headquarters. The firm continues to gain market share and is aggressively pursuing new products and markets. Productivity gains at this location are largely the byproduct of an active lean manufacturing program and a leadership team that embraces lean manufacturing methodology. The role of Production Supervisor leads the largest production department in the site and reports to the Operations Manager. The Production Supervisor owns production and is responsible for metrics of productivity, productivity improvement, quality, and safety. Successful performance in this role can lead to advancement to Operations Manager.
Our client requires at least five years of production leadership, including prior experience as a line supervisor. A Bachelors degree is required, however, the client will consider strong candidates without a 4-year degree with a clear track-record driving productivity improvement. Effective people leadership skills are valued more than specific process familiarity but experience with metal fabrication is preferred. Corporate leadership is committed to lean manufacturing concepts, therefore, individuals must come from an active lean manufacturing environment. Prior experience with lean tools such as value stream mapping, standardized work, or 5S is required.
