Primarily looking for someone with extensive supply chain/materials management experience in the automotive industry. Stamping/metals a plus. Fast paced and fast growing company, so need a hands on manager who can "roll up their sleeves and get in the weeds". Definitely not a desk management position. Relocation offered.

In everything we do, we remain true to our core values of commitment, communication, and caring
