TC1 Machine & Truck Werx is a company that combines traditional craftsmanship with technology to provide excellent service, continual innovation and a commitment to quality for our customers.
What began as an 80’s high school friendship, Walter Schweizer and Tom Guggino shared a love of machines, cars and business. Although the two took different paths after highschool, Walter perfected his skills in metal fabrication and millwright services and became the General Manager of Dejana Equipment’s Baltimore manufacturing facility.
Tom pursued his MBA in marketing and enjoyed a very successful career in the technology industry. However, it was just a matter of time before these two would come back together.
Call it fate, friendship or opportunity, in 2017 the two reunited over their love of the craft and a realization that with their combined skill sets, they could finally do what they dreamed of, together.
2019 launched TC1 Machine & Truck Werx LLC with a mantra handed down from Walter’s father… “Do it right or don’t do it at all”.
Tom earned bachelors in marketing from LIU and an MBA from Baruch. Tom began his business career in the technology industry selling computers. From the humble start in computer products, Tom’s path led to a sales, marketing & management career in telecommunications.
