Process Manufacturing Manager – Raw Material Processing

A well-established international manufacturer, with a revenue exceeding $900MM, is currently seeking a skilled PROCESS MANUFACTURING MANAGER. This role primarily involves overseeing the operations of a new materials processing line within their specialty materials manufacturing plant, located in the Southwest region of Nashville, TN. The plant is dedicated to serving various high-tech product manufacturers globally. We are specifically looking for a Process Manufacturing Manager with a solid background in material converting processes, similar to those found in a foundry setting.

This opportunity is ideal for an experienced manager who is well-versed in handling high-temperature processing equipment (such as ovens, furnaces, and kilns) and their corresponding control systems. The role offers significant visibility and ample scope for career advancement.


  • A minimum of 5 years of work experience in an engineering or manufacturing role within a heavy manufacturing industry environment, such as a foundry or stamping operation. Experience in metals or ceramic processing environments will also be considered.
  • A Bachelor's degree in Engineering is mandatory, with a preference for candidates holding a degree in Mechanical Engineering (BSME) or Electrical Engineering (BSEE). This role is highly technical and hands-on, so a degree in Business Administration (BSBA) will not be sufficient.
  • Prior experience in a production environment that relies on power-oriented processing methods, like a foundry, is essential.
  • 3 to 5 years of managerial or supervisory experience is necessary.
  • Proficiency in managing power distribution systems and associated controls is highly desirable.
  • Practical experience with production control systems and equipment is strongly preferred.
  • Experience working within a matrixed management structure is strongly favored.
