Factory Manager

Horsens, DK

Ref. number:  1634

Does helping to make life better for millions of people motivate you? 

If the answer is yes, you think just like us. We are a world-leading medical solutions company, designing and supplying medical solutions to enhance performance in healthcare – from the hospital to the home. 
We’re looking for people who want to improve outcomes for healthcare professionals and their patients. 

Continuing to invest in our future, we are hiring a Factory Manager for our Airlaid Products manufacturing site in Horsens, Denmark. 


The small site in Horsens produces material for Mölnlycke's market leading Wound Care products and also material for third party clients. We are looking to develop the activity, increase the size of the teams, increase the volume and efficiency of production and, following recent investment in R&D, also increase the number of products manufactured on site. We will also be investigating increasing the physical footprint of the site, and bringing in lean principles to improve processes. 


So this will be an exciting period of change, and we need to hire an empathetic leader, who can lead the highly experienced team through that process. 


Your Responsabilities:

  • Responsability for the effective and safe running of the factory, within budget and according to the approved strategy
  • Process improvement projects to increase efficiency
  • Develop and maintain a strong management team, and drive a high performance culture in all areas of the Factory
  • Achievement of safety, environmental and quality objectives (ISO9001)
  • Support R&D
  • Support sales
  • Implementation of Mölnlycke policies around HR, Production System and others


Your profile:

  • A relevant degree, or commensurate professional experience
  • Manufacturing experience
  • Proven experience as a leader, with an empathetic and team building approach
  • Change Management experience
  • Lean manufacturing knowledge
  • Experience from a regulated sector
  • Language skills (English & Danish)
  • Analytical and strategic mindset
  • Good communication skills, able to coach, convince and inspire


This is a critical position for us, as the Airlaid factory enters into a period of positive change and expansion. We are looking for an experienced person to implement improvements without destabilizing the existing operation, which performs extremely well. If you are a leader who is able to gain credibility and develop effective teamwork quickly, and if you are looking to play a pivotal role in the expansion of a manufacturing organisation, then we would like to hear from you.
