Stephen Portillo joined MATRIC in 2013 to assist with pilot plant fabrication and general repairs and maintenance, including laboratory hoods, pumps and various electrical equipment. Portillo brings 10+ years in the electrical trade having worked primarily in local chemical plants reading and interpreting drawings, blueprints, schematics and wiring diagrams and installing and trouble- shooting instrumentation installations.
Health and safety are part of each and every thing that MATRIC does. It extends beyond a normal work day, with many MATRICians practicing healthy food consumption, exercise and lifestyle habits on their own time. Recently, a group of MATRICians who are personally dedicated to their own health and the health of their communities, saw an opportunity to provide MATRIC employees with some additional support to make healthy choices.
