When I first purchased my PCM company, the only knowledge of chemical etching that I had was what I had learned from visiting my uncle’s circuit board company. I joined PCMI shortly after I purchased my company.


Over the years the PCMI technical sessions and the chance to learn and talk with other owners and suppliers at meetings has contributed to my company’s growth and profitability in an environmentally friendly manner.


The cost of PCMI membership has been well worth the money.
