Guy and O'Neill Top Workplace Milwaukee Wisconsin

GUY AND O’NEILL INC. NAMED A WINNER OF THE SOUTHEAST WISCONSIN 2018 TOP WORKPLACE AWARD BY THE MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL

May 4, 2018

Fredonia, WI – Guy and O’Neill Inc., a private label and contract manufacturer, has been awarded a 2018 Top Workplaces honor by The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. This is the third year in a row the company has been bestowed the award as it was also recognized as a top workplace in 2016 and 2017. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few.

“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits.” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”

“We’re proud and honored to be recognized as one of the top workplaces in Milwaukee for the third year in a row,” said Tom Misgen, CEO and President, Guy and O’Neill Inc. “This award is a reflection of our talented team members who make Guy & O’Neill such a great place to work. They are the ones who make our culture special and who make it enjoyable to come to work every day. Together we work hard and go the extra mile to take care of our customers and we have fun doing it.” Jennifer Engert, HR Manager, added “It’s exciting to be recognized for this honor again. The culture at Guy & O’Neill is special and I’m proud to be a part of it. I’m especially thankful to all our employees.  They are the ones that make Guy & O’Neill a great company to work for and this award is a reflection of their can-do spirit they bring to work every day.

GUY & O’NEILL INC. DONATES WET WIPES FOR HURRICANE HARVEY RELIEF

September 5, 2017

Fredonia, WI – Guy & O’Neill Inc., a manufacturer of household cleaning supplies and personal care products, is donating disinfecting wipes, bath wipes and other personal hygiene products to aid Hurricane Harvey Relief and Recovery.

“Guy & O’Neill is a company that cares, and not just with our own employees and customers, but also nationally. And the people in Houston need help”, said Tom Misgen, President of Guy & O’Neill. Items like cleaning wipes, bath wipes and personal hygiene products are not often the most popular to donate, but they are much needed. “An item like a bath wipe can give people a little bit of normalcy back in their lives. I imagine there are people who have not had the luxury of a shower in a week or so and these products give them the opportunity to hit the reset button”, Misgen said.

The company is trying to provide a sense of home and comfort from their community in Fredonia, Wisconsin to the families and communities in Houston, Texas. The commercial retail value of the products being sent down there is roughly $200,000. The semi-truck of product ships out on Tuesday, September 5th and it will take about 2 days before it will get down to Texas, before it can be unloaded and given to people in need.

Elsner Designs and Builds Next Generation Rewinder for Canister Wipes

June 6, 2017

Hanover, PA– Elsner Engineering Works, Inc. announces the design and build of their next generation rewinder targeted for the canister wipes market. The Elsner G3 takes the industry leading ENR-1000 concept and experience a big step forward.

Increased Speed, Increased Production
With increases in speed, cycle rate and finished roll size, the G3 will give converters a boost in production and capability. With feedback from customers using the existing model, Elsner’s team of engineers focused on the key points that were commonly heard.

The Features: Customer Feedback in Action for Big Gains
The move to 700 feet per minute web speed is where converters will see immediate gains. A 75% gain is going to keep downstream equipment very busy. The 12” finished diameter increase (up from 10” on the previous model) gives their customer greater range in the growing ‘gym wipe’ and other large roll sector. Each machine will include access to the Elsner IIOT app for real time data analysis, production feedback and trend monitoring. In addition, the app has embedded manuals, maintenance alerts, contact forms and other functionality.

“A close look at our perforator design was key to the development of our third generation nonwovens rewinder,” states Bert Elsner, II, Elsner’s President/CEO. “Our R&D team looked at how to better balance the knife body, handle the bearing mounting and make the blades easier to install. We are very pleased with the outcome and cannot wait to see the new design in action in our customer’s facilities.”

Guy & O’Neill: A Partnership for Success
When bringing a new machine to the industry, the key to success is finding the proper partner for machine number 1. Working closely with long time customer Guy & O’Neill, of Fredonia, WI, Elsner found a great fit.

“Guy & O’Neill’s growth and our machine build progress lined up perfectly,” says Jay Roth, Corporate Sales Manager for Elsner. “As they revealed their outlook and production needs moving forward, it was great timing to get G&O involved with the G3. The timelines worked for both teams. We are finishing up the build, integrating the optional features our customers expect, including our ultrasonic tail tie, and fine tuning to G&O’s exact needs. With their support, we are putting the machine through production level testing before we let it out of our building. We want to make sure they see the full value of their investment from the moment we install the machine in Wisconsin.”

Guy & O’Neill is thrilled to partner with Elsner to be first to market with the new machine.

“G&O is very excited to partner with Elsner on this new technology,” commented Tom Misgen, President and COO of Guy & O’Neill. Elsner is already the leader in center-pull roll converting equipment. The new G3 brings the level of performance to a new level. The new Elsner G3 is the heart of our new, automated, state-of-the-art, canister manufacturing line. Simply stated, this new process will be the most efficient AND flexible canister manufacturing line in the world.”


Elsner Engineering Works, Inc.: Founded in 1934, Elsner designs and manufactures converting and packaging machinery. Elsner’s wide range of machines are used to convert and package such products as rolled and folded wipes, medical disposables, film, gift wrap, aluminum foil and wallpaper.

This is amazing! Auditors do not give perfect scores, but we received one. Yet another example of our outstanding performance, this time it is validated by an outside entity.
