Job Description:
This person will work at a specialty chemicals facility located just off the Sam Houston tollway in south Houston. The reason the role is open is because the previous maintenance manager was moved into a production manager role. The main focus of this person’s role initially will be to continue the implementation and development of maintenance workflow processes and continue the development of the staff on this team. The key to doing well in this role will be having strong leadership skills. This role is for someone who likes to get their hands dirty and who likes to drive changes. This is a very high-profile facility within the company, so someone will have the opportunity to be “noticed” in this role which would lead to positions of increasing responsibility down the line. The parent company is a multi-billion-dollar chemicals manufacturer (privately owned) that has big plans for the next few years.
Minimum Requirements:
  • B.S. in Mechanical Engineering preferred, may consider a chemical engineering degree with requisite experience
  • 10+ years of experience overall with at least 4-5 years of previous management experience, either as a maintenance manager or as an engineering manager.
  • Must possess a strong knowledge of chemical process equipment (rotating and fixed)
  • Must be able to show a strong track record of successfully driving change
  • Should have previous experience in developing site maintenance/reliability concepts and work practices
