HIghly Experienced Operations Manager and Technical Trainer
I have over 30 years of experience in leadership and upper level personnel management. I am technically fluent in plastics including blow molding, extrusion molding and injection molding. I am a "Hands-on" trainer and I can quickly grasp the concepts needed to operate and maintain machinery and take those concepts and efficiently operate that machinery.
I am experienced in gauging a workers strengths and weaknesses and can use that information to help them improve their talents.
I also understand the intricate balance between operations and maintenance and the fact that one cannot perform without the other.
I believe in teaching a strong core competency in workers which includes the basic concepts of manipulation of plastic, which will help them understand why defects happen and how to better identify the root causes for quality issues.
Managed recruitment, training and placement of over 60 night shift production workers required for production shift expansion.
We actively promoted an engaged employee environment which allowed us to operate production machines on night shift. This allowed the company to meet all shipments and help decrease inventory shortfalls.
Developed an overall operations plan that allowed for all routine and mandatory maintenance to be conducted at night while also operating required night shift production schedules. This allowed the full day shift to concentrate on production and not lose downtime to maintenance issues.
Developed and implemented a highly comprehensive training program for Shuttle type blow molders (Kautex and Sabmann Extrusion Blow molders) for new manufacturing facilities in France and Romania. Implemented LOTO procedures in these plants to coincide with our company safety policies.
