Current positions available:

Purchasing Manager

Exergen Corporation has an immediate opening for a Purchasing, Logistics and Supply Chain Manager at our Watertown, MA location. Exergen is the world leader in medical thermometry responsible for taking two billion temperatures every year. Our TAT-2000C retail model is the best-selling consumer thermometer in the United States and our TAT-5000 series professional thermometers are used in over 50% of the hospitals in the USA. Both products are proudly manufactured at our Watertown, MA and Methuen, MA factories.


  • All procurement including raw materials and other purchases (capital, services, supplies etc.) This involves identifying new suppliers and negotiating price and terms with new and existing suppliers.
    Converting sales forecasts to requirements through our MRP system (Macola)

    Operating the purchasing function within the requirements of cGMP, ISO etc.
    Establishing and tracking metrics for supplier performance.
    Managing the importing function.
    Managing outbound logistics function.


  • Purchasing is now a transactional function. Need to make it a strategic function.
    Identify cost savings opportunities looking holistically across supply chain. This could be driven by reductions in piece part costs, but also in making the supply chain leaner. Change is constant, and we are sometimes over committed to suppliers on materials we no longer need.
    Move toward strategic partnerships with our suppliers.
    In some cases, we may need to cast a wider net looking for lower cost suppliers. In other situations we may get advantages associated with consolidating multiple materials with a smaller number of suppliers.
