The role of the Production Technician II is crucial in supporting the operations team. The technician is responsible for troubleshooting equipment issues and performing preventive maintenance on production equipment throughout the facility with limited supervision. Additionally, the technician will participate in 5S and Lean manufacturing activities, including material handling improvements, production line configuration, and safety procedures. The technician needs to learn industry-leading maintenance practices and methodologies to increase equipment safety, uptime, and performance.


As a maintenance worker, it's important to adhere to the safety policies and procedures set by the company and industry standards such as OSHA, NEC, NFPA, USDA, FDA, and others.

You will also be required to diagnose and repair equipment deficiencies and failures, including mechanical, electrical, pneumatic, and hydraulic equipment, as well as facility repairs as needed.

You'll need to learn and use continuous improvement tools and methods to improve equipment reliability, which may include root cause analysis (RCA) and failure mode analysis (FMA), and make recommendations to prevent recurrence. You will work and train with OEM technicians during production equipment rebuilds, line moves, installations, setups, calibrations, and emergency repairs.

To perform the required maintenance and service, you'll need to read and interpret equipment manuals and work orders. You'll be responsible for effectively managing assigned planned work, unplanned failures, and work orders in a high-paced, fluid work environment.
