Plant Manager

Project ID: 10055

Location Cambridge, ON, Guelph, ON, Kitchener, ON, Waterloo, ON
Description One of Canada's best known food processors requires a Plant Manager for one of its local plants. The operation is highly complex, diverse, and dynamic requiring constant vigilance to equipment uptime and critical performance metrics. The production model is high volume / high mix processing and packaging with frequent change overs scheduled 24 x 5, but currently working most weekends to meet increasing demands.

The Plant Manager will inherit financial performance responsibility from the retiring incumbent and build on the company's legacy of a collaborative, employee-centered workplace culture while meeting increased demand for products. The high seniority, unionized workforce is well trained in the operation of existing processing and packaging equipment, but will need training for new capital projects that will add more modern machinery to the mix.

Our ideal candidate comes to us as an experienced Plant Manager with a pedigree earned in the food processing, beverage, dairy, or CPG manufacturing world, who intuitively understands performing to HACCP and SQF requirements. Decisive by nature, this candidate displays a lead-by-example style, is constantly visible on the shop floor encouraging and supporting the Production Team. A consummate communicator, s/he has a way of inspiring people to accept and achieve common goals, constantly raising the bar to improve performance metrics.
