Today Argentus is working with a well-established client in the manufacturing distribution industry. This company makes and distributes building materials with a wide variety of applications. They’re looking to bolster their distribution and warehousing function through automation, so they’re seeking an experienced and forward-thinking Warehouse Manager!
Working out of the company’s Mississauga, ON distribution centre, the Warehouse Manager will lead a team of 10+ direct reports to optimize inventory, improve materials management, and maintain an excellent level of customer service in the fulfillment of the company’s orders direct to stores. You will take a hands-on supervisory role over the day-to-day operations of the warehouse, helping to coach and develop staff, and reorganize the warehouse to improve efficiency. Work within the company’s ERP system to ensure on-time completion of orders for the company’s 600-700 SKUs. Beyond this, it’s a process improvement role where you’ll be tasked with implementing new programs to improve the efficiency of the warehouse (e.g RF scanning, automation technologies, etc.)
The ideal candidate for this role will have at least 5+ years of supervisory experience in a warehouse in the manufacturing, distribution, or building materials industry. Solid familiarity with ERP systems and people management is also a must for this role, as is demonstrated experience implementing new systems and organizational improvements at the warehouse level. The successful candidate will also have experience in distribution to retailers. If this sounds like you or someone in your network, contact Argentus today!
