COVER LETTER: To Whom it May Concern: After 30 years in manufacturing, I have accumulated broad experience in leadership and management of manufacturing businesses. My background offers experience in managing operations, facilities, quality, purchasing, engineering, sales and customer accounts. Having started my career in Quality Management, the philosophies of clear documentation of all processes, root cause analysis and continual improvement have been permanently ingrained in everything I do. In moving from Quality / Engineering Management to Plant / Corporate Management in my career, I have been able to mentor staff in all functions of the company in these basic, but critical, philosophies. Including LEAN manufacturing tools in my skill set has been a successful combination to improve processes while reducing costs. Examples of our achievements in my r�sum� are the result of this leadership. I establish close relationships with internal and external stakeholders to deliver best value in products and service. I am especially talented in evaluating a product, process or situation and quickly rallying the team to implement solutions and improvements. I have lead successful projects with scope ranging from new product launch through relocating an operation to another facility, supporting numerous industries, including Automotive, Heavy Truck, Agriculture / Mining Equipment, Medical Products, HVAC and various Commercial businesses. I am proficient with all facets of ERP / MRP systems, especially managing forecasts / schedules, throughput, financials and critical business analysis, as well as all MS Office software. Understanding and fully utilizing these business tools is key to a successful operation. Supply chain management has been a part of my role in operations management for over 20 years. I have successfully managed supplier relationships to improve performance in quality, delivery and cost. Establishing supplier contracts enabled efficient JIT inventory management and maintained a competitive edge in our market. I have sourced materials in low cost countries since 2004. A personal interview would allow me to demonstrate my talents and the contribution I can bring to your organization. My r�sum� shows some of my accomplishments in various industries, improving quality, increasing efficiency, reducing cost and enhancing company growth. I look forward to speaking with you soon. Sincerely, Robert A Eiler II
