Description & Requirements

Are you looking for a challenging and rewarding career in supply chain management? Do you have a passion for optimizing manufacturing processes and delivering value to customers? If so, you might be the perfect fit for our Multi-Site Master Planner role!

As a Multi-Site Master Planner, you will be the key link between our two manufacturing sites and our demand planner. You will balance supply and demand across our Renewal by Andersen division, which produces high-quality windows and doors. You will make strategic decisions on where and how to produce our products, ensuring cost efficiency and customer satisfaction. You will also collaborate with senior leaders, including plant managers, to implement and monitor plans that align with our business goals.
In this role, you will report directly to the Director of Supply Chain at Renewal by Andersen and will be located in Cottage Grove, Minnesota. One of the sites you will be supporting is our new Manufacturing facility in Locust Grove, GA which we broke ground on in November 2023 (click here to read more about our new Locust Grove facility!).

  • Mentor and coach supply chain managers and analysts across multiple manufacturing sites, fostering a culture of excellence and collaboration
