Founded in 2017 by Eric Jones – a geological engineer, Alchemetrics Semiconductor was born from a passion for materials, and their applications in engineering and industry.
Eric relied on the guidance and counsel from a family friend – Michael A. McNeilly. Mr. McNeilly was no stranger to the semiconductor and high tech industry. He founded Applied Materials Technology in 1967, and led AMAT to initial public offering in 1972, and remained with AMAT as Chief Executive Officer for several more years.
Eric has worked in the engineered plasma coatings and dielectric spray coatings industries since 2002, and was part of a Boise based team that received a United States EPA grant to turn high purity waste ceramic into a thermally sprayed corrosion resistant plasma coating.
Alchemetrics was recently invited to join the Idaho Department of Commerce on a Trade Mission to Taiwan. Taiwan is Idaho’s second largest trading partner, exporting more than $675 million in goods in 2018.
