The Opportunity

They are a manufacturer of high-quality winter maintenance, Weed Spraying and chemical fuel storage plant equipment and some of the company's products have become recognised as clear market leaders. Not only do they manufacture the equipment, they also offer plant hire, spare parts and product training. Their product range and customer base has grown extensively over the last number of years and they now feel that they need a Operations Manager to come in and take control of day to day operations and to help take the business to the next level. They key areas that need looking after are man management, operations, production and manufacturing improvement. They are a great company but the two family directors probably and admittedly have exhausted their knowledge and skills in the above areas.
