THE COMPANY & THE PLANT

THE JOB: Sr. Manufacturing Engineer / Project Engineer / Plant Engineer / Process Engineer
The position is essentially a project engineer that leans heavily on the processing side (from NPD to post production cost-savings via line efficiency).

Other duties will include SOP development, creating manuals, and training program development.
This is an on-the-floor role around 60% of the time – you will not be sitting down on CAD programs or doing copious amounts of regulatory paperwork. You will work with high speed production lines and downstream equipment. Your role will be a mixture of process engineer, manufacturing, engineer, scale up / NPD (during new product roll outs), and continuous improvement / cost savings. You will wear these different hats in concert with the stages of projects that you juggle.
