COMPANY OVERVIEW www.unimacts.com
Unimacts is a leader in the Industrial Manufacturing Services (IMS) space. Unimacts offers contract manufacturing and supply chain management services to industrial OEMs in North America, Europe, and Australia. Unimacts provides castings, forgings, fabrications, assemblies, and machine shop services as well as complimentary quality, supply chain, and engineering services. These products and services are delivered from Unimacts’ network of supply sources primarily located in low-cost countries.
The OE is the heart of the company. The OE supports all aspects of the Unimacts sell to cash process. The OE supports sales calls, helps define the best solution for the customer and takes responsibility for execution of that solution. The OE oversees and manages the profitability of projects by establishing total cost targets, collaborating with the Sales Exec for customer pricing, and by leading the global team of Project Managers to deliver product at or under the cost target.
The OE reviews customer RFQs, drawings, and technical details, and oversees the conversion of these requests into outgoing RFQs. The OE manages the project technical specifications. This includes responding to queries from customers and suppliers as well as reconciling differences and obtaining customer approval of any specification non-conformances throughout the RFQ and mfg. processes. The OE will oversee and execute the assigned portions of the Unimacts Operating System (UOS) which is our process to deliver perfect products and services to customers, on time, every time. The OE leads the FAI, PPAP, or other customer documentation and approval processes once contracts are awarded.
The OE is a unique role – they must be able to see the big picture and manage a P&L, while also being able to get deep into the technicalities of an ASTM spec. The OE must be comfortable with a VP of Supply Chain and a young welder on the shop floor.
