We complement our range of products with customised solutions for clients that have unique needs.

This is a management position that requires energy, attention to detail, and strong interpersonal skills to ensure that the team is able to deliver on our promises to our clients. You will need to have good leadership qualities because our success is due to our people and the great work that they do.

Ideally you will have a demonstrated background in manufacturing in a steel-based industry or equivalent, as we utilise a host of manufacturing presses, rollers, CNC machines and both manual and robotic welding equipment.

Engineering or trade certificates will come in handy but are not essential if you have the right experience. Knowledge of lean manufacturing and logistics will also be advantageous.

The opportunity to work locally in a modern production environment that operates on day shift only, and with a company that prides itself on its people and quality local manufacturing are rare. If you believe that your manufacturing experience is transferable to our industry, we encourage you to apply.
