At Austin Nichols, we specialize in direct hire and contract recruiting for manufacturing and engineering. That’s why we do more direct hire job placements in those fields than anyone else in the Greater Kansas City Area.

There’s a lot of overlap in job placement between the two sectors, since many of the best engineering jobs are in the manufacturing industry. But manufacturers need more than just engineers to get the job done, which is why our manufacturing placements often focus on areas like production and plant management, quality management, purchasing, logistics, and HR positions.

Manufacturing is one of the largest segments of the U.S. economy, contributing over $2 trillion and supporting an estimated 17.4 million jobs. Even taken on its own, American manufacturing would still be the 8th largest economy in the world. It contributes more than 12% of the gross domestic product, and supports about one in every six private sector jobs. What’s more, the average manufacturing worker in the United States earns around $77,505 a year, well above the national average for workers in all industries.

Austin Nichols gives our manufacturing candidates exposure to top job listings at some of the best employers in the metro area, many of which are exclusive to us. We know that the best manufacturers need the best employees to stay on top of the game, which is why we find the top talents in the field and match them to the best jobs out there. And as with all of our candidates, we don’t just stop at finding you a job opening, we help you through every step of the hiring process, from resume preparation to contract negotiations and beyond.

Manufacturing is an exciting and vibrant field with a bright future in Kansas City, and Austin Nichols can help you find the job of your dreams with some of the best employers in the industry today.
