I am the son of a tool maker, born and raised in Saginaw Michigan. I received my Bachelor’s degree from University of California Irvine where I was the Varsity Swim Captain, Big West Champion and All American swimmer. My tooling industry experience began with an apprenticeship for my father Morgan at Fullerton Tool Company. After learning the grinding and production processes for solid carbide tooling I headed back to California to start my career. I established MC Sales and Marketing in 1997 with a business model based upon exceptional customer service, reliable product availability and expert tool application. MC Sales and Marketing has been growing for 18 years and now services the 6 southwestern states.
I have worked in the industrial supply business for 35 years, the last 9 years at MC Sales as their band saw specialist. I also have vast experience cold saws, abrasive saws, and band saw maintenance and repair. My son Kirby Viel is now our band saw maintenance, repair, and set up for our Cosen band saw line.
I have been employed in the Metal Working Industry since 1999. Born and raised in Cloquet, MN, I studied Mechanical Engineering at the University of Minnesota. Throughout my career in sales, applications, and distribution, I have been fortunate enough to work with world-class manufacturers, distributors and end-users. Our focus was on process improvement and reliability. I have been working closely with MC Sales and Marketing over the past 10 years and I am excited to be joining an organization that matches my desire to provide outstanding customer service while proudly representing market leaders in the manufacturing industry.
I come from a long bloodline of machinists. All of them right here in Southern California. It began with my grandparents owning an injection mold making company and moved on to my dad being in the machining industry his whole life. I’ve been around machines my whole life too, with a little bit of machine shop background myself. It has now become my objective to learn more and excel in the tooling field. Despite the fact that I am new to the industry, my drive is fueled by my interest and passion.

I am the only son of a Tool & Die Maker. My machining experience began while I was still in Jr. High, running a lathe for my father’s shop. I completed a high school accredited Machining Technology program during my Jr. and Sr. years. Upon graduating from high school, I began working for a local Indexable Tool repair facility in Colorado. By the time I turned 21 years old I was the plant manager and spent the next 10 years working, studying and learning there. In 1989 I started working for Triad Tooling and have spent the last 30+ years overseeing the manufacturing of indexable boring bars, toolholders and spade drills as well as overseeing the distribution side of Triad, including tooling up various machines, including DMG-Mori, Fadal, Brother and Haas. As a distributor, I have worked very closely with Mat Curry and his team at MC Sales & Marketing.
