Production Manager for MASCOT Laos

Do you have solid management experience and a proven success record from garment manufacturing? Are you a strong leader, and can you see yourself working in a multinational company with its own production facilities where quality, efficiency, strong ethics, and social responsibility are core values? Then we have an exciting job opportunity for you in Laos.

Our current Production Manager has decided to retire after managing our production successfully for 14 years and we are therefore looking for a new colleague to take over the management of our well-run and expanding production site in Laos.

About the job
As our new Production Manager your main responsibility will be the daily management of the production in MASCOT Laos. It includes ensuring productivity, high performance and employee motivation, cost efficiency and high quality in our finished goods. As we are SA8000 certified, you will also get an important task in ensuring that we are always compliant with the current, global standards for social responsibility which includes setting a good and safe work environment for all our employees.

Additionally, your tasks will include:

  • Management of all production systems from cutting to the finished product, including packing according to MASCOT quality standards
  • Manage the production plan to achieve on time deliveries according to the specified quality standard, production manual and PDM
  • Visible management and motivation of more than 1500 employees with a planned increase to 3500 employees in the coming years
  • Training and development of all workers and medium production management colleagues
  • Lead and expand our “continuous improvement program”
  • Report on key figures to corporate C-level management
  • Follow up on performance targets and initiate corrective actions when needed
  • Hold annual staff appraisals

In this role you will report directly to our Senior Production Manager for our sites in Vietnam and Laos, who is presently stationed at our production facility in Vietnam. In addition, you will work closely with the Managing Director of MASCOT Laos and MASCOT Vietnam.

About you
To be successful in this position, it is crucial that you have a solid understanding of garment production and the complexity of all stages in large-scale garment production. You should therefore hold a master’s degree in Textile Production or a similar relevant technical degree. Besides your educational background you have solid experience, documented management skills and a proven success record from running a major garment production consisting of 1000+ employees. Experience in workwear is preferred, alternatively you have experience from the production of related woven products such as jeans or the like. It will also be a strong advantage if you have experience working in a production company in Asia.

You are a strong leader with an analytical mind-set, able to work under pressure and able to always make efficient decisions. You work systematically and persistently with strong morals and ethics. You are driven and have experience working interculturally with great success. You are curious and eager to learn about the newest technologies. You should be willing to travel approximately two weeks a year to engage in trade fairs to enhance your skills and stay up to date with the development in the garment production industry. You are a strong communicator across all levels, and you can communicate fluently in English, orally and in writing. If you also master Lao and/or Thai, it is an advantage.

Be a part of a strong culture
MASCOT is an international growth company with a strong and ambitious culture supported by commitment, competencies, diligence and cooperation. Our ambition is to develop, produce, market and sell the world’s best workwear and safety footwear.
You will be a part of a dynamic workplace in constant development, where we do our job with a high level of energy, a solution-oriented flexibility and adaptability. At MASCOT you get responsibility, whilst our managers through constant coaching and motivation create the foundation for professional and personal development.
MASCOT is a family-owned company and is founded on family values. We trust each other, take care of each other and treat each other with decency and respect. This is also the approach we have towards our customers and other business partners. Decency and quality are paramount values for MASCOT.
