Operations Director

About the role

Kelvin KBB (, established in 1986, is Scotland’s leading manufacturer of high quality Kitchens, Bathrooms and Bedrooms and supplies B2B directly to the largest house builders and developers throughout the country. The Head Office and factory are based in Cumbernauld, near Glasgow, with an additional showroom recently opened near Stansted. Kelvin employs over 200 people with a turnover in the region of £16m.

The business has maintained a growth rate in excess of 15% for the last 3 years and this level of growth is planned to continue, as the demand for new homes in the UK grows. There is a clear and ambitious strategy in place to substantially increase turnover through a combination of growing existing Scottish operations and actively growing market share across the UK. The recent major investment in operational systems, manufacturing plant and people accurately reflects the ambition of the business and the commercial opportunity that lies ahead. This will be a very exciting time to join the company.

We are looking to appoint an extremely high calibre Operations Director to drive operational excellence across manufacturing, logistics and supply chain. The Operations Director will report to the Managing Director and will be responsible for developing the people, processes and technology to support the strategic plan and ensure that best performance is delivered on a daily basis.

Candidates are likely to have a solid background in manufacturing within a relevant sector and will have proven leadership and change management experience in a multi-stakeholder environment.

The potential financial rewards on offer are very attractive with a good basic salary and benefits package.
