In this role, you will report directly to the Plant Manager as part of the plant’s Leadership Team. We know him well. (In fact, we placed him in one of his first Engineering roles out of college in the late ‘90’s). Over the years, we’ve built a close business relationship and friendship with him, so we’re personally committed to presenting him only the best of the best for this role.
