Medgenix Benelux nv is a Belgian company, part of the global Perrigo Group, and operates in the pharmaceutical, medical device, and cosmetics industry. The site is located in Wevelgem and employs 140 people in the production of mainly pharmaceutical and cosmetic products in liquid and semi-solid forms (such as creams, ointments, syrups, shampoos, lotions, and liquid soaps).


Medgenix is looking for a Production Manager to oversee the operational activities at the production site.  The Production Manager is responsible for coordinating all activities within the production, filling, and packaging departments.

Main responsibilities:

  • You are the ultimate responsible party for the smooth execution of all production activities and processes, ensuring that operational objectives are met.

  • You oversee the day-to-day organization of production activities within the bulk production, filling, and packaging departments to achieve planned volumes, in line with set deadlines and quality standards. Working with planning & production officers, you determine priorities and necessary resources to meet these goals.
  • You lead and coach the team of supervisors (working in three shifts) in their leadership responsibilities, supporting their personal development through training and education.
  • You analyze and determine production flows for optimal capacity planning, focusing on line efficiency and process optimization. Together with the site management team, you aim for continuous improvement and optimization of all production and logistics processes.

  • You report to the Site Director and play an active role within the site management team.


  • Ideally you will hold a bachelor's or master's degree in a relevant orientation, however this is not essential as experience in a similar role is the key criterion for this job.
  • A GMP-regulated environment is familiar to you.
  • You have at least 4 years of experience in a leadership role and possess a natural ability to inspire teams and elevate employees.
  • You have strong interpersonal skills and create an open, collaborative culture to achieve results as a team.
