Production Team Leader

Job Description
Resting at 7,000 feet and surrounded by the San Francisco Peaks, the scenic city of Flagstaff remains an important distribution site for large manufacturers, like Nestl Purina. Just a stone's throw from downtown, where the city's culture comes to life, our Nestl Purina Family in Flagstaff experiences the best of both worlds: the city and the mountains. Annually, we mass manufacture 270,000 tons of dry pet food from our Dog Chow, Beneful, Nestl Purina ONE, Alpo and Pro Plan brands - and we're doing it all underneath 70,000 square feet of solar panels to draw nearly 12 million kilowatt hours of clean emission-free solar electricity.

We're working on innovative foods and formulas that rival healthcare, pharma, human food, and tech companies are the world-foods and formulas that can extend the lives and cognitive function in maturing dogs and cats. We're developing ways to improve the vision of cats and minimize pet allergies through quality nutrition. We were the first ever to extrude dry dog food and we're backed by a lengthy list of patents-a portfolio of industry firsts.

Over 500 scientists make everything we think about come to life. We're nutritionists, chemists, immunologists, microbiologists, veterinarians, and the alike. But, what we do stretches far beyond our titles. It's a dare we accepted from the very beginning - the dare to 'Stand Taller'.
