Concentric Corporation was
founded by Marc Klecka on October 1, 1990. The initial company objective was to sell and service the Citizen
CNC Swiss-type turning center product and peripheral support equipment. Prior to the formation of Concentric,
Marc had spent the previous 6 years working closely with the Citizen product in both New England and
Recognizing the long-term value this product offered the machining community, Marc
saw the opportunity to utilize his sales experience and achieve his life-long dream – to become a small business
owner. At its inception, Concentric sold the Citizen product in just northern Ohio. However,
quick success in this market dictated the expansion into the southern Ohio region, and now also Western
Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Unsurpassed product performance and support have led Concentric to finish in
the top 5 sales positions domestically for Citizen in many of the company's 26 years of business, including
multiple #1 finishes.
Concentric recently added the versatile Miyano mill/drill multi-turret product to
its powerful Citizen line-up. Citizen Holdings/Japan purchased Miyano Machinery/Japan to facilitate this
partnership. Concentric is proud to now represent this dynamic product with the same vigor and vitality that
have led to its Citizen sales and customer support achievements.
While much has changed since Concentric’s humble beginnings, fundamentally the
company remains the same at its core. Crucial to Concentric's continued success have been superior sales and
service teams. They have not only mirrored the vision of the company's founder to make Concentric' s
customers preeminent, globally competitive manufacturers, but have built upon it. Without their dedication and hard
work, Concentric Corporation’s success would not have been possible.
