The old saying, “you get out of it, what you put into it” is never more true than when applied to MBI membership. Over the years Ramtech has benefited greatly from its association with MBI. This to a large degree can be attributed to our past and continued commitment to management of MBI by participating at the board of director’s level. Don’t think this opportunity is just for the chosen few. This opportunity is presented to every MBI member. You simply have to stand up and get involved...yes, it is that simple. Ramtech will continue to support MBI through membership and participating in the Seals Program. We recognize this as an investment in our industry.
