Our client, a long-established, forest products company, has retained us to find a Plant Manager for a new state-of-the-art, "Green-Field" sawmill, which will be one of the country's largest, most efficient, and versatile Southern Yellow Pine facilities
This is an industry leader which is siting the mill where a significant portion of the necessary resources will be supplied from company timberlands, and where there will be some advantageous synergies with the company's other diversified manufacturing operations.
We are seeking an experienced professional who will work with their “Turn-Key” partner during construction and then as Plant Manager will lead staffing, start-up and eventual production. The ideal candidate will be an exceptional “process” and “metrics” driven leader with a demonstrated track record running successful sawmill operations. A safety and quality focused leader able to build strong teams. Experience with Green-Field and/or other major capital projects would be a plus.
Someone excited about the opportunity to head up and run a major new project for an established, respected, financially-strong forest products company.
