Our customer, Nihot Recycling Technology B.V., based in Amsterdam, is member of the Bulk Handling Systems (BHS) Family of Companies and the leading global provider of air technology to the waste and recycling industries. Nihot’s air separators reflect a superior reliability, offering the highest waste separation efficiencies. In this field, Nihot is the world’s leader.
The machines include screening, optical, and AI driven robotic technology which are produced by Nihots sister companies. The company in Amsterdam exists since over 50 years, and is profitable and steadily growing over the years.
For Nihot, we are looking for a Managing Director.
As MD, you are responsible for the company (operations, sales and service ) in Amsterdam, as well as sales and service in Europe for machines of the whole group. The current Managing Director is leaving the company after over 10 successful years, and is leaving behind a healthy, profitable company with a good, experienced MT and personnel. As MD, you are expected to continue to grow this healthy cooperation, and also help building the sales in Europe further.
In Amsterdam, about 55 people work every day to make the machines, that are mostly standard machines (Configure to Order), but practically always with several customer specific changes. 20 people are in production, 7 in engineering, 3 in projects and 8 each in sales and service. The production is well organised, but somewhat restricted by the building, and can be optimised by Lean and by the final implementation of the new ERP system. The factory building is older, it may be that the company will move in the coming years.
You are reporting to the CEO of the group. You are willing to travel regularly, worldwide.
We are looking for an experienced individual with a strong background in production management while able to lead an aggressive world wide sales and service effort. The person that we seek must be able to act independently while also working collaboratively with his/her counterparts in the USA. You are an inspiring, straightforward, open, honorable person.
Your management style is coaching. Your experience in projects and operations makes you have an eye for daily improvements, which you implement with your team using Lean. In general, you are an all around Managing Director with a broad experience in machine building for an international market.
