Moultrie - Workers at the hatchery and processing complex will be trained through a program at the technical colleges called Georgia Quickstart. It's an economic development program that works with the Technical colleges to train employees of new businesses coming into town, in what will hopefully become a lasting relationship.
One year ago, Sanderson Farms committed to build a new hatchery and processing plant in South Georgia. Wednesday, they made another commitment.
Moultrie Technical College President, Dr. Tina Anderson says, "A partnership is the reason things are done, because we've gotten together, we've looked at it from a regional perspective, and we said, if you want to make it work, put your resources together."
Moultrie Technical College and Valdosta Technical College will use their resources to provide training for Sanderson employees. "The program is designed to give initial training for economic development so that people come in, and then that grows into a wonderful relationship between the company and the technical college so that they have people out here, we hope, for the entire lifetime that the company is here," says Anderson.
The company will be in South Georgia as long as capable workers are trained for a job well done. Anderson says, "Do one great project and let the community benefit."Sanderson Farms is expected to begin operations in South Georgia by late August.
Last year was one of Sanderson Farms most successful. They did more than $1 billion in sales, and are now the nation's fifth largest poultry producer.
