POSITION SUMMARY

 

Since 1997, the King William factory has been a major producer of the nation’s cat litter supply. Located on Tidy Cat Road just 25 miles northeast of Richmond, the 40-acre plant site is built adjacent to a 486-acre clay mine, for efficient and effective mining, processing, packaging, and shipping of raw material and finished product from the same facility. We are a Continuous Operation, with alternative shift options to mass produce both our conventional and clumping cat litter that supplies the mid-Atlantic region with nearly a half of a million tons annually - over one and a half a million tons produced by 2020.


For 50 years, brands like Tidy Cats® have combined the highest quality ingredients and science to even the most disposable products. The 70’s advanced into microencapsulated deodorant, by the 90’s we were clumping and scooping, and in 2000 we introduced Crystals® made from silica gel, and designed to last 30 days between changes. Innovation continues today. In 2013, Purina revolutionized the cat litter category, producing LightWeight® litter, which has all the strength, but only half the weight of conventional litter. These and future innovations have created demand that our King William, VA factory is proud to meet.

 

As a Sr Technician Factory Quality, you will be responsible for ensuring the quality of the finished product as it is produced each shift through the verification of compliance to process and procedures including NQMS requirements, additive applications, material quality, and product quality tests. You will be responsible for ensuring proper quality testing equipment use and calibration, SAP and WinSPC data management and reporting as well as conducting employee training, performing quality audits, and investigations into product and material quality issues.

 

This position will work nights and weekends.

 

  • Verify additives and quality for Formal Release
  • Investigate quality issues to identify root cause and to develop processes to resolve issues including troubleshooting process and equipment variations
  • Set up and perform product sensory panels with management
  • Analyze SAP data to provide continuous improvement opportunities
  • Provide WinSPC reports and data review to all levels of employees
  • Follow up on product hold and raw material issues and manage the DMR process

 

Requirements

  • High School Diploma or GED equivalent
  • 2+ years' experience working in a quality, production or related field

 

The approximate pay range for this position is $47,000 to $67,000. Please note that the pay range provided is a good faith estimate for the position at the time of posting. Final compensation may vary based on factors including, but not limited to knowledge, skills, and abilities as well as geographic location.
