Guill Expands Team with Design Engineers

Nick Comeau

Brandon Ribeiro

Guill Tool, provider of extrusion tooling, recently announced the hire of two new employees. Nick Comeau and Brandon Ribeiro join Guill as Design Engineers. The announcement was made by Chuck Paull, Chief Marketing Officer, at the company's West Warwick, RI, headquarters.

Comeau obtained his mechanical engineering degree from the University of Hartford, CT, where he worked part-time as a senior machine shop manager.

As a Design Engineer at Guill, Comeau has several responsibilities, including new product design concept generation and research and defining customer requirements using job quotations, purchase orders and customer interactions. He also develops the design concept for customer requirements, works on the detailed design using SolidWorks Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and computer-aided engineering (CAE) programs, database searches, along with proprietary design tools. Comeau prepares the design to release it to operations for manufacture by ensuring accurate and complete drawings and bill of materials (BOMs), performs project reviews to define and implement process/product improvements and presents to customers at trade shows.

Ribeiro received his mechanical engineering degree from Roger Williams University, in Bristol, RI. Before joining Guill, Ribeiro held several positions including metal fabricator, press brake operator, design engineer and automation engineer.

Ribeiro's work at Guill involves creating extrusion die assemblies to the requirements specified by the customer. The details are acquired by the sales team along with reference assembly previously created. Once the assembly is completed, Ribeiro contacts the customer to get approval before sending the job to the shop floor for production.

Commenting on the new hires, Paull said, "We are excited to have Nick and Brandon join the Guill family. They are young professionals eager to learn all they can about the extrusion process to better serve our customers."
