Maintenance Manager (Equipment)

SGD Competitive



Based in our flagship advanced motor manufacturing facility at Pioneer Crescent, you will report to the Senior Manager.  You will lead and manage a team of (4 equipment supervisors, about 110 technicians and 11 technical operators) towards ensuring all highly automated production equipment are in optimal condition and develop the necessary technical competencies and equipment capabilities to meet operational performance targets within the approved maintenance budget.

Market Overview

Our Singapore story began in 2004 and today we have more than 1000 people working here. At the beginning of 2017 we opened our new, state of the art, Singapore Technology Centre in Science Park I, minutes from Singapore’s technology and start-up community. This new Technology Centre houses some of Dyson’s most advanced facilities including Robotics and Sensors laboratories and Smart Home, Connectivity & Mobile Applications laboratories as well as an Advanced Control Tower with the latest technology to develop its analytics-driven activities.

Not too far away is West Park, our flagship advanced motor manufacturing facility where we develop our autonomous robotic manufacturing capabilities – more than 300 robots assemble our Dyson Digital Motor (DDM) here. It is here that we develop our next generation of motor technology.

Function Overview

It’s one thing to solve a problem that’ll change technology forever. But turning that idea into a reality takes solving many more problems – and success is ultimately measured, not by the thinking, but by the product. Our Manufacturing department supports over 1,000 Dyson engineers worldwide turning ideas into groundbreaking technology. Involved early in the design, we identify materials, pre-empt production issues and find ways to build more efficiently. Yet robustly. From designing the machines, to the machines that build the machines, we’re helping to shape the future of technology.


You will

  • Lead and manage a team towards ensuring all highly automated production equipment are in optimal condition and develop the necessary technical  competencies and equipment capabilities to meet operational performance targets within the approved maintenance budget
  • Establish plans and strategies to meet and surpass manufacturing performance indices (eg Downtime, MTTR, MTBF, etc), set targets/goals and projects for the section to minimize scrap, asset cost per unit
  • Manage preventive maintenance & calibration. Ensure all equipment performance is monitored and recorded for continuous improvement and reliability
  • Provide guidance and training to the team in order to enhance the effectiveness of trouble shooting and knowledge sharing.
  • Ensure smooth startup of new equipment together with manufacturing engineers and equipment vendors
  • Establish all equipment specifications, troubleshooting and PM procedures, and ensure their compliance with corporate & regulatory requirements and procedures.
  • Liaise with equipment vendors and spare parts suppliers continuously to develop new methods to achieve low cost maintenance system and cost excellence
  • Manage equipment servicing contracts with suppliers.
  • Lead and drive the team to participate in all continuous improvement projects related to cost, quality, utilisation & productivity using Six-Sigma or similar applicable methodology such as Cpk, FMEA, TPM, Lean, etc.
  • Maintain & manage the spare parts inventory, auto ordering and consumption within cost budget
  • Minimise equipment downtime with Best-In-Class indices for OEE, MTBF, Yield, etc.
  • Execute effective PM & production line support.
  • Develop a competent technical support team & minimize reliance on equipment suppliers technical support.


You should

  • Possess a Degree in Mechanical/Mechatronics or equivalent engineering discipline
  • Come with a minimum 8 - 10 years working experience in the field of Maintenance and Equipment Engineering with at least 3 years in a supervisory position
