Operations Manager

Are you ready for a bigger career challenge, in pushing yourself and your team to deliver high-impact results? Do you excel as a leader and mentor, as a collaborative team player and hands-on performer? Are your capabilities and contributions recognized and appreciated?

We are known globally and highly regarded for our abilities to design, develop and manufacture innovative medical devices which improve restorative dentistry. We are headquartered in Spring Lake, MI and locally-owned by our founding partners. We are financially strong and rapidly growing. We are building our manufacturing capabilities through vertical integration, automation and in building stronger, more collaborative relationships with our suppliers. We are seeking a talented and motivated Operations Manager to lead that effort. Is that you?

If so, you will be responsible for leading our company-wide production, toolmaking, assembly, packing and shipping operations. You will report directly to the CEO and serve as a valued member of our leadership team.

During your initial year, you will manage daily operations to optimize productivity, safety and the on-time shipping of quality products. You will identify necessary resources to support our growth, vertical integration and automation objectives. This includes building our capabilities in high-precision two shot micro injection molding of engineered plastics along with the related in-house toolmaking support. You will provide operations support for new product launches (e.g. consider required changes in floor layout, work flow and operator training). You will manage all resources in a disciplined manner. You will improve our process for selecting and qualifying suppliers and for managing their performance in meeting our delivery, cost and quality expectations. You will also support our Quality Management System to ensure we maintain our ISO 13485 certification and to satisfy customer and regulatory requirements.
