Industry: Industrial Distribution
Argentus is working with a new client, a renowned industrial distributor in the west end of Montreal, Quebec. This company has a reputation for high-quality products, as well as an efficient and effective Supply Chain. Today they’re looking to add to that Supply Chain effectiveness by hiring a Supply Chain Manager!
Working out of the company’s west end Montreal location, this Supply Chain Manager will lead a team with the goal of improving the company’s bottom line through excellence in Purchasing, Logistics, and Inventory Management. This means working to negotiate effectively with suppliers to lower costs, as well as using logistics best practices to improve lead times, and working to improve the company’s inventory position by optimizing levels of product on hand. You’ll need to be strategic, developing purchasing programs alongside other stakeholders in the organization to source new suppliers and negotiate effective agreements. You’ll improve the company’s warehousing operations by determining cost-effective and efficient options based on supplier location, customer locations, as well as requirements of inventory. You’ll also work with product management and sales to provide inventory forecasts to help maximize customer service and product availability without leading to extra inventory on hand.
In short, this is a full-service managerial role within Supply Chain, perfect for an individual with at least 3 years of supervisory experience in the field, and a strong understanding of Purchasing, Logistics and Inventory Management. This client is looking for someone with strong Supply Chain Management experience in the distribution or manufacturing industries. French is an asset but not a must for this role.
