The Manufacturing Technician class has had many  opportunities to meet and tour great Maine companies like Oakhurst Dairy, Bristol Seafood, New England Tech Air, SIGCO, Inc., Shipyard Brewery, and more. Today, we welcomed specialty food manufacturer, Schlotterbeck and Foss to the NTI campus.

From Facility Tours to Recruitment Campaigns

Schlotterbeck and Foss visited our class today to recruit some of NTI’s Manufacturing Tech students. The chosen students will start at their new jobs immediately  after graduating  in late September.  Earlier this month, students  toured the company’s  new, state-of-the-art plant in Westbrook.

Schlotterbeck & Foss was founded in  1866, and you’ve probably  seen their selection of specialty foods and flavorings in local grocery stores.  Many private-label products like salad dressings, steak sauces, salsas, and others are manufactured and shipped right from their Westbrook plant!

We’re excited for our Manufacturing Technician students, as they prepare to enter their new field of work! Learn more at
