While the above is the company information, it boils down to being basically a $10-15M Plant Manager position. Reporting to the VP of Manufacturing and President. If I were to describe the feel for what this job is, it is old school manufacturing management, bringing modern tools to improve all aspects of their manufacturing operation. It's your show. It's fast paced, must be flexible to respond to schedule changes and customer needs. You need to know how to develop and manage budgets, schedules, reports, P&L, and other business related management tools. Products are 80% AG and stock buildings, with residential and commercial filling the balance. Market swings have not effected this company during the last crash, they are strong, debt free, and growing fast.
