Frederick A. Geier (1866-1934) helped establish the Cincinnati Milling Machine Company in the late 1880s. Geier, an experienced salesman, brought his gifts for finance to the enterprise while his partners developed the technology; together, they made the firm a leading supplier of automobile parts, sewing machine components, grinders, lathes, and other machine tools. Today the company is known as Cincinnati Milacron. This corporate award medal was designed by Joseph Renier.
