EricKingIn 2011, Eric King joined MATRIC as a chemist, but he didn’t realize that he would become a jack of all trades to the MATRIC team and to its customers.

Though he was formally educated as a physical organic chemist, graduating with his Ph.D. from The Ohio State University, Eric performs various types of chemistry with the majority of his time spent on analytical chemistry. While no one day is the same, most days are spent in lab, with vacuum pumps or dry boxes.

“I can honestly say that no two days are ever the same,” said Eric. “On any given day I’ll be spending time in the labs, speaking with our technicians, or talking with customers. I never get bored, and that’s what I love about my job at MATRIC. Every day is different.”

When he’s not at work, he just so happens to be a jack of all trades at home, too. From fixing up motorcycles and antique cars, to remodeling his home, to collecting vintage guitars, he’s always working with his hands.
