January 11, 2018 - Guild International announces new ownership with the purchase of the company by three long-term employees: Joseph “Joe” Thomas (above left), formally VP of Operations, has been named President; William “Bill” Maruschak (above middle) will continue as Chief Financial Officer; and Mark Wagner (above right), formally Sales Engineer, has been named Vice President of Sales. Mr. Thomas and Mr. Maruschak have each been with the company for over 30 years, while Mr. Wagner joined the company in 2009.

Guild International is a privately-held company that has been owned by Michael Wheeler, son of Donald Wheeler, the original founder of the company. Mike Wheeler will continue on as Chairman of the Board. Guild International was established in 1958, making 2018 its 60th year in business. The company holds many patents for their coil joining processes and equipment. Throughout the years, Guild International has designed and built thousands of installations around the world on virtually all types of coil processing lines.

“As a longtime employee, I’ve always known that Guild International was a solid, stable company that built great machines,” says Mr. Thomas. “When the opportunity was presented to purchase the company from Mike, with Bill and Mark as my partners, I knew this would be a chance of a lifetime. Now Bill, Mark and myself have the opportunity to take Guild into the future, built on a solid reputation of 60 years serving many industries.”
