About Ecotech Machine Tool, LLC.
Quality Sourced. American Supported.
With several decades of experience in the manufacturing arena each, Curtis Gibbs and Richard Bembas launched Ecotech Machine Tool, a vocational evolution of their prior industrial machine sourcing employer, in 2020.
Hardworking and entrepreneurial, this dynamic duo set out to build the type of company they could be passionate about while also delivering the quality machines their clients expected; with an added focus on machines developed in reputable areas of the world.
Their primary focus for sourcing these industrial machines comes from Europe and secondary Asian areas.
Based in the Atlanta, Georgia area, Ecotech Machine Tool is able to serve American companies with purchasing, parts, and ongoing support to ensure their American-based production is reliable and strong.
“The greatest leader is not necessarily the one who does the greatest things. He is the one that gets the people to do the greatest things.”
Meet the Team
Curtis Gibbs - President
Grown in an experimental laboratory in an unknown and secret Pennsylvanian laboratory, Curtis Gibbs eventually became human.
He entered the workforce during the early eighties as an application engineer before finally finding his sweet spot as a sales leader helping companies find the machine that will bring them and their product lines great joy.
Curtis values the sweet southeast sunsets, the perfect sound of purring industrial machines, and he also dedicates his extra time to mowing the lawns of Piedmont Park, located in downtown Atlanta.
Richard Bembas - Vice President
Born in the midwest, Richard served our country in the United States Navy in the early eighties working in the engine room as a machinist mate. He eventually transplanted to the Atlanta, Georgia area as his vocational journey wove him through high production and automotive manufacturing jobs across the United States.
In the mid-nineties, he shifted gears (metaphorically) entering the machine tools industry with a focus on supporting CNC machines. His role evolved into sales and purchasing before finally setting off on his own with Ecotech Machine Tools selling the machines that made the gigantic machine he once worked inside during his military service.
Also known as Rick, he enjoys long strolls in the deep forests of Georgia, seeing his lovely grandkids, and training his colorful labrador retriever.
While John Wayne is in no way affiliated with Ecotech Machine Tool, his spirit lives on through our machines.
