Interim management is an effective managerial solution for companies of all sizes to deal with an unprecedented situation, a managerial emergency or to accelerate their transformation.

MANAGERIM, expert in interim management, provides you with interim managers specialized in industrial operations everywhere in Europe and internationally.

Our community of interim managers in industrial management includes top and middle managers (industrial director, industrial manager, site manager, production manager...) with:

  • sectorial expertise (food industry, pharmaceuticals, automotive, aeronautics, mechanics, packaging...),
  • solid experience in organization and management of industrial activities,
  • strong leadership skills,
  • a "hands on" culture,
  • and skills in managing continuous performance improvement projects (lean management, etc.).

Our interim managers are men and women selected after a rigorous and demanding process, as much for their expertise as for their interpersonal skills.

The missions of an interim industrial director

The industrial manager defines and pilots the company's industrial strategy. He/she defines and pilots the production resources and teams, makes organizational choices, allocates production and negotiates partnerships.

Assignments include various responsibilities depending on the company:

  • Define and deploy the company's industrial strategy in cooperation with the General Manager
  • Make industrial organization choices at different levels (local, national or international): outsourcing, spin-off, transfer of activities from one site to another (relocation...)
  • Plan the global allocation of resources (human, equipment and financial) between production sites and general organization procedures
  • Make investment choices concerning the production facilities
  • Define and deploy the operational strategy of the manufacturing sites
  • Drive approaches to harmonize and improve site performance and optimize production resources transversally: sharing a reference system for monitoring industrial performance, common indicators, developing synergies between production sites, driving the implementation of an information system, etc.
  • Establish industrial partnerships with research organizations, laboratories (R&D) or subcontractors...
  • Manage the company's purchasing and industrial subcontracting policy in collaboration with the purchasing department
