Maintenance Supervisor - PLC - Chatsworth, CA

Branch ID: 3277


Maintenance / Facilities Supervisor Account Manager Notes

This has been a client of theirs for 4 years. It started off with hard to fill orders like CNC Machinists, but they moved to develop a relationship and became their only provider. Now they have 25 employees working at the company, and they're the sole agency. The company makes swimming pool products and filters for pools. It's manufacturing/production; they are a privately owned company.

The position they're looking to fill is a Maintenance Mechanic Supervisor. It's really to supervise the team of 4 Maintenance Mechanics on the side of production. They have injection machines, folding machines that folds materials, etc. They want someone with supervisory experience (5 years+) as a maintenance mechanic supervisor in the production field. They're looking for assembly line/manufacturing machine production background.

The person we're replacing is looking to retire. He will stay on to train this new person, so there will be a transitional period where this person will be trained. They are very motivated to fill the position.

Someone with bilingual/Spanish skills is a plus, but not necessary.

The client is open to having a phone interview to feel out candidates before we get too deep into the process. If we're unsure, he'll do a call.

Pleatco is a main competitor

This is more of a management position and very crucial to the operation. They do everything in-house: manufacturing, packaging, shipping, etc.
