Employee-Owned and Committed to Our Community

Employee-Owned and Committed to Our Community

Tech Etch was founded in 1966 by George E. Keeler, who pioneered the photo chemical etching process and grew Tech Etch to be in step with high-tech manufacturing industries. He also understood that every good company knows that the employees are the most vital asset of the organization. Without top-quality talent that cares about their work, no business can thrive. George Keeler, the founder of Tech Etch, understood this principle.

That’s why he decided to make his company employee owned. Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) is a qualified defined-contribution employee benefit plan that provides a company’s workforce with an ownership interest in the company. In 1999, he created the ESOP that sold 30 percent of Tech Etch to his employees. In 2018, he sold the rest of the organization to the employees, making Tech Etch a 100 percent employee-owned company.

When the people who handle the day-to-day work at a company have an investment in the organization, they take pride in the work that they do. They work harder and care more about the products and the clients. Tech Etch is proud to be owned by its employees.

With ownership comes a sense of responsibility to both the company and the community. That’s why Tech Etch is dedicated to improving and caring for the local communities where we operate our facilities.
