Cincom Systems Inc., marked its 35th anniversary Monday complete with music, speeches and the unveiling of exhibits for an in-house museum detailing the software company's history.

The privately held company founded by chairman Tom Nies has just had two of the best years in its history, officials said, completing its 18th consecutive year of revenues exceeding $100 million.

The company, whose clients include CitiBank, Anheuser-Busch, Siemens and Bertelsmann Music Group, employs 730 including 300 in Greater Cincinnati.

In a video message, Gov. Bob Taft commended Nies, who started Cincom with $600 in his basement, "for turning his vision into one of Ohio's most successful companies."
