Job Description:
This person will work in a PSM-regulated chemical manufacturing facility in Beaumont, TX. This facility runs 24/5 and the site uses liquid batch reaction. There is very little red tape at this site when it comes to capital projects, in other words, they have the liberty to invest when the need arises. The company itself is very family-oriented with growth opportunities here at this site, as well as in Houston. The majority of the job will be day-to-day support of the plant. That includes watching plant trends, examining DCS charts, reviewing cycle times, and reviewing the ‘why’ and ‘where’ they are losing chemicals in the process. Other responsibilities include maintenance-related responsibilities, HAZOP meetings, leading Management of Change (MOC) procedures, design through installation of projects from $10K to $500K, and occasionally filling in for the plant manager. The parent company has several facilities throughout the U.S. and is a leader in their market segment. Relocation assistance is available and a generous 401k is available. This is one of the few remaining companies out there that also offers a pension.
