Not only does NW Etch know their way around metal, they also know how to receive one! An award, that is. On February 17th, 2016 NW Etch welcomed some unexpected guests. The visitors happened to be Congressman Derek Kilmer and Maria Contreras-Sweet, Administrator from the Small Business Administration. Their visit was a celebratory one, as NW Etch was honored for its contributions in representing the spirit of what the Small Business Administration is all about. President Glenn Dooley and CEO John Dooley graciously accepted the award.
During her recognition speech, Maria Contreras-Sweet stated,
"This coincides with America experiencing 71 months of consecutive job growth, which is historic! Two-thirds of that is coming from small businesses, which today employ about half of the private sector, making small businesses the engine of the American Economy."
Congressman Derek Kilmer added,
"For over a decade, it's been neat to see how (NW Etch) has grown and prospered, and we are grateful for your investments in The City of Destiny."
For over 38 years, NW Etch has made thin metal parts of complex design via cutting-edge technology known as photo-chemical etching. "The aerospace, medical device, & telecommunication industries and others utilize our method because it preserves the structural integrity of the metal throughout the machining process", stated Mitch Zoch of NW Etch, adding "allowing us to be part of the most intriguing projects, on and off the planet".
