We come up with smarter ways to make the best use of agricultural resources, and to help eliminate food waste, and we pride ourselves in a first-class service organization.

If you thrive on the production floor, ensuring timely high-quality production while having an eye for optimizing processes, this is a rare opportunity for you to take responsibility of leading a production facility of innovative solutions.

Join Production and Supply Chain

As Plant Manager, you will be leading the main production facility for our growing business. With direct reference to our Senior Vice President for Production & Supply Chain (P&SC) and as part of the P&SC management team, you will head an organization of about 150 employees through four Line Managers, as well as a Material/Planning Manager.

You will be part of developing the manufacturing and capacity strategy in Hillerød, setting the future direction for our production while being an inspirational leader with an ability to create motivation, foster collaboration and facilitate implementation of new innovative production processes.

All functions within the factory will fall under your responsibility - from daily purchasing to pick & pack of the finished goods and be an important contributor to support the continuous growth we are experiencing.

An exciting challenge

While continuing the development of a knowledgeable management team and exercising inspirational leadership, you will be responsible of planning, organizing, directing and running optimum day-to-day operations to exceed our customers' expectations.

You will be the main driver in developing and implementing the manufacturing and capacity strategy as well as ensuring a high-performance team with the right competences and tools. Further, you will continue the development and implementation of the LEAN concept to improve current state to match future requirements in production and to ensure that Production & Supply Chain deliver quality solutions on-time at a competitive price.

You will work closely together with the New Product Introduction department to ensure a smooth and successful transfer of new products into production and ensure continual improvements of the quality of our products documentations, processes and procedures.

We expect you to be familiar with industry standards and to have the necessary understanding of safety, quality, productivity, demand creation, inventory, documentation, processes and procedures. Having a Green belt in LEAN manufacturing is considered an advantage.

Since FOSS is a global organization, it is a prerequisite that you are fluent in Danish and English and you are computer literate with a strong skill set in Microsoft Office.

Who are you?

People describe you as a strong communicator, able to set the direction and inspire employees to work in new ways. You have the ability to create accountability and to lead by example. You understand that FOSS is on a continuous journey, always ensuring that our products have a competitive advantage - now and in the future, and you know how to develop as you deliver.

You will have a diverse workday demanding strong collaborative skills with an ability to interact fast and smoothly across departments. One minute having technical discussions on the shop floor, the next minute presenting thoughts on the future to FOSS ´corporate management.
