Supply Chain Intern

Job Details

Job Ref:
505 Central Ave, Pawtucket, RI 02861
Employment Type:
Full Time


When Alfred Fain founded a small Rhode Island tire store in 1924, at the time no one could have predicted how Teknor Apex would become an international custom compounder sought out by companies around the world. After a nearly hundred-year journey that’s carried us through acquisitions and expansion, we now have nine U.S. locations, as well as operations in Belgium, Singapore, Germany, and China.

Throughout this global expansion Teknor has remained a privately held company, and today Fain’s grandson sits at the helm, maintaining the family’s tradition of fostering deep employee and customer relationships. These relationships are what allow us—together—to deliver customized compound solutions and help our customer’s create better products.

“Manufacturing is a team sport and we work together to achieve our goals.” ~Jon Fain, CEO

Join the team behind our custom compounds.


We are seeking a highly motivated, detail-oriented individual to join our team as an Intern. In this role, you will be responsible for analyzing and identifying large datasets for integrity. This role would be suitable for an individual pursuing studies in Business, Data Science and Supply Chain. You will be exposed to varying cross-functional team members within the organization by which you will gain real world experience in a corporate setting with one of the world's leading plastics manufacturers, here in Rhode Island. Come and see where the plastic compound for laces for the NFL’s footballs are made!

Teknor Apex has recently transitioned its global Enterprise Resource Planning capability (ERP) from its historic ‘on-premise’ capability to its new standardized cloud solution. One of the Teknor Apex businesses which did not undergo this change in 2022/2023 was its consumer Hose business as this one on a different technology. This business is now being transitioned to the same global cloud solution as the rest of Teknor Apex.

You will be responsible for performing the following duties:

You will work closely with our experienced data analysts by assisting them in data integrity tasks such as data profiling, standardization, enrichment, and consolidation. You will also learn different tools and techniques used in data cleansing and data quality management.
