Project Engineer – Specialty Chemicals
Location: Charlotte, NC
Overview (what’s in it for you?):
One good sign that a company is doing well is when they expand their existing facilities and that’s exactly what this company is doing right now. They are in the very early stages of a plant expansion project and will be moving new technologies into this plant. This role will be involved in the scale-up and tech transfer of those new products and processes. Overall the site employs about 200 people and we have placed 4 engineers here in the past six months, attracting people out of Dow Chemical, Solvay and Sealed Air. This facility has doubled their headcount in the past 10 years and will double again within the next few years.
This facility is well-kept (clean), the company culture is such that people rarely leave, and they promote a good work-life balance. The plant itself is located southwest of Charlotte and is surrounded by affordable housing and lots of stuff to do outdoors. Charlotte has a major, International airport and the ocean is about 3 1/2 hours away (Myrtle Beach, Charleston).
This position will involve design through installation focusing on projects from $250k to multi-million dollars. Working on a multi-mullion dollar expansion and existing plant projects in a PSM & Medical Grade Resins site. Both sites primarily focuses on batch reactions with high purity specialty chemicals.
