Production Manager

Production Manager

 

We’re a leader in the pet care industry, which means we’re not only ahead in volume, profit and market share, but our associates dare to Stand Taller. We innovate new products, impart new agilities into existing processes, constantly advance pet nutrition, and always pay it forward in the form of service for our communities and families. Are you up for the dare?

 

This position is not eligible for Visa Sponsorship.

 

 

POSITION SUMMARY

Since the doors opened in 1972, this factory has grown dramatically into a sustainable state-of-the-art facility. In 2013, we completed our largest solar project yet by installing a 450-kilowatt photovoltaic system of nearly 1,900 panels. The amount of energy produced annually by this solar array could power nearly 52 average-sized homes, or approximately 5,000 lights bulbs for an entire year. With sustainability and safety always top of mind, our Atlanta factory proudly and passionately produces 460,000 tons a year of our dry pet food brands, including Alpo®, Beneful®, Cat Chow®, Dog Chow®, Fit & Trim®, Friskies®, Nestlé Purina ONE® and Pro Plan®. This plant location is just along the southern crescent of Metro Atlanta – an area that nearly 5 million residents and over 340 of our associates can call home. Atlanta is considered the major commercial and financial center of the Southeast and, if this beautiful city were a country, it would be the 28th largest economy in the world.

As a Production Manager, you’ll safely produce quality products at the right rate and the right time. In this role you will lead continuous improvement processes and implement tools to achieved desired goals. You’ll provide analytical support to Operations Management, which will help facilitate continuous cost reduction and process improvement efforts using computer-based technologies, statistical techniques, data analysis, and Nestlé Industrial performance tools.  We’ll rely on your sound recommendations, which will impact efficiency, innovation, cost reduction, productivity and waste reduction. We’re a safety-first culture driven by a zero defect and zero waste mentality set out to enrich the lives of pets and the people who love them!

 

  • Coordinate activities and provide direction for processing and packing operations. Coordinate and implement strategies for safety, sanitation, productivity, and cost saving enhancements.
  • Analyze operating procedures and make recommendations on Best Practices.
  • Facilitate Continuous Improvement (CI) efforts in alignment with Nestle Continuous Excellence (NCE). Provide problem solving expertise by identifying root causes for problem areas and recommending possible solutions.
  • Provide post-installation analysis on new technology and capital equipment installations.
  • Work with Systems and Engineering to manage the plant floor relational database to ensure effective systems integration between the plant floor systems and the business systems.
  • Lead a team of supervisors, leaders, and operators. 
  • Analyze plant floor data and provide feedback that will enable process improvements.

 

Requirements

  • Education: Bachelor’s degree in engineering, business, or related field required.
  • Experience:   2+ years’ of management leadership experience in a manufacturing, production, military or related environment required.
