Dear Mr. Smith:
I am very interested in joining an organization such as (name the organization). During my online research, I was very excited to learn about the current opening for a production manager, and feel my qualifications and your requirements are a good match. For your review, I have attached my resume for your consideration.
As the production manager for Plastix Ltd., a national manufacturer of disposable plastic components for both medical and cosmetic industries, I have built and managed multi-million dollar manufacturing operations to support a growing demand for production.
My focus on ensuring quality management systems have ensured the award and renewal of the company’s ISO 9001 certification throughout my twelve year tenure. Considering that the company was almost forced to close its doors the year before I can onboard is quite an accomplishment and indicative of my ability to turn a company around.
One of the first things I did as the new production manager was to restructure the work schedules of plant personnel across three shifts to eliminate the need for overtime and cross-trained everyone to support a mandatory 25% workforce reduction.
In 2001, I championed the implementation of Six Sigma and Lean Principles, improving the company’s performance measurement capabilities – resulting in streamlined operations that exponentially drove productivity levels in the past year, realizing a 53% return on investment in 2009 alone.
My attached resume details what I have done. I would like to meet so we can discuss your needs and what I can do for your company.
Thank you for your time. I hope to speak with you soon.
