A group of Quinsigamond Community College students had the opportunity to visit the Table Talk facilities during Manufacturing Month. The event, which was coordinated by Walmart, showcased the importance of manufacturers creating innovative new jobs in U.S.

“Manufacturing—particularly food manufacturing—is a strong part of Massachusetts economy and we are proud to be a part of it,” said Harry Kokkinis, president of Table Talk Pies. "We look forward to continue to work with local colleges, including Quinsigamond Community College, to attract and train future generations of students interested in manufacturing, including working at Table Talk Pies.”

QCC students who attended the event are enrolled in the College’s Programmable Logic Controllers class. They received a behind-the-scenes look at how Table Talk manufactures their pies and were also introduced to possible career opportunities with the company.

“We want to thank Table Talk Pies for hosting our students and giving them the opportunity to experience this part of the manufacturing industry during Manufacturing Month. The manufacturing industry is a vibrant one in the Commonwealth and QCC works closely with manufacturers in our region to ensure there is a well-educated pipeline of skilled workers. We are training our students not only for the jobs of today, but also the jobs of the future,” said Quinsigamond Community College President Dr. Luis G. Pedraja.
