Description

Interim Manager for a £30M turnover business unit, responsible for relocation of processes and equipment

Achievements:

  • Closed down sending site (with others), refurbished receiving site, relocated plant, parts and processes, no disruption to operations at the receiving site

  • Achieved within time and cost budget, no incidents

  • Equipment orders successfully delivered from receiving site

As Interim Manager in a business assembling highly engineered capital equipment, I relocated automatic high bay warehouse crane assembly from a closing plant to another UK receiving site.

I specified, contracted and managed factory redevelopment at the receiving site (lifting, logistics, stores, power, paint, environment, etc).

As part of the same exercise, I relocated assembly of automotive test equipment (dynamometers) from Germany to the same new UK receiving site.

I project managed the transfer of assembly processes for both product groups.
