Materials Testing Lab Manager (Wittmann, Arizona)

Posted: 12/21/2023

Materials Testing Site Manager

With total oversight of a small team, this is a hands-on, multi-faceted management position of significant responsibility. Day-to-day, the Site Manager oversees all aspects of our AZ site including staffing, quality of service, equipment up-time, and profitability, while working closely with the Managing Director and other supervisors from the remote Florida office to ensure testing is accurate and timely. Longer term, the Site Manager participates in strategic planning for the facility, particularly in the development of new products/services, and growth of sales opportunities. Through proper planning, the Site Manager must ensure that the site maintains operation 7 days a week, through holidays, and that all tests start or are serviced in a reasonable amount of time. The role will often require wearing many hats and someone with a broad skill-set - even going so far as personally stepping into any role and performing necessary tasks to keep these critical tests going.
