Amtech unveils new quarterly magazine

Publish date:

The Association of Marine Technicians released the first edition of Marine Technician Today, its new quarterly magazine.

“We are very excited about this publication,” Amtech president Joe De Marco said in a statement. “It will provide valuable information for our members and the marine service community as a whole. We have enlisted the help of many experts in the marine industry to contribute articles to the publication.”

Topics pertinent to the marine service industry are included, as well as articles related to improving the business aspect of service, De Marco said.

“Veteran writer and longtime Amtech member Bill Grannis will be writing technical articles on a regular basis,” De Marco said. “Bill has written for many marine and boating magazines over the years. Board member John Mosetti will be contributing high-performance articles, and new to Amtech is James ‘Jay’ Kay of Stafford Insurance.”

Kay will write articles on insurance issues for the marine industry. The publication also will provide business and service management information to help members become better and more efficient business owners and operators.

Marine Technician Today also will be available online through the Amtech website. During the debut, the magazine will be available to the public for a short time and then to members only.
