Pilgrim’s Pride had a problem. The company needed trained industrial maintenance people – folks who could repair and maintain the machines that process the chicken.
Eastern West Virginia Community and Technical College and the America’s Promise 220 consortium had the solution. Provide a certified Industrial Maintenance course, on site at Pilgrim’s.
