Leadership

Jack Grace | Co-Founder & Secretary/Treasurer

Ohio Tool Systems was started in 1974 by Jack and his founding partner Ed Hoyle. Jack became sole owner in 2001. Formerly a Regional Manager with Ingersoll Rand, Jack moved all over the US with IR, and finally settled back in his home state of Ohio. The boom time of the 70’s and 80’s brought a lot of growth to the business and eventually he was joined by his two sons, Greg and Eric.

Greg Grace | President

Greg joined Ohio Tool Systems in 1985 as a field salesman covering accounts in and around Cleveland. Today, along with his responsibilities as President, he continues to call on and serve key accounts. Prior to joining OTS, he attended BGSU and worked in the steel mills during summers. 

Eric Grace | Vice President

Eric started Mid State Industrial in 1986 in Columbus after attending BGSU. Since then Mid State Industrial has grown into a preferred partner for precision fastening solutions in the Mid West.
