Christopher Guest Joins Juki as Central-Southeast Regional Sales Manager

Feb 18, 2013

Juki Automation Systems announces that Christopher Guest has joined the company to manage sales in the Central and Southeast Regions of the United States, Central Mexico and Central America.

Chris comes to Juki with a proven track record as a sales professional over the last 16 years. Working with several of Juki’s competitors, he has achieved sales of over 75 million dollars of Electronic Assembly and Semiconductor Capital Equipment. He attended the University of Texas and graduated with honors in the field of business, and has continued his education with many courses and seminars in the fields of sales and electronic assembly process control.

Juki Automation President and CEO Bob Black stated, “We are extremely pleased to welcome Chris to the Juki team today.  His energetic and intelligent approach to sales will add a lot to our efforts in the years ahead.  His proven track record and reputation in this industry made him the best choice to fill this position.  There is no doubt Chris will add a valuable voice to our management team. We look forward to kicking off his Juki career this week at APEX, and working together for many years to come.”

Chris Guest commented, “I am a firm believer that true partnership is critical for long-term success, both customers and vendors must see value in working together. The “Customer Centric” structure of Juki is perfectly aligned to this belief as demonstrated by its long-term customer loyalty.  I believe that a creative or out-of-the-box solution is only new once, but with a company like Juki, these programs can become industry standards that create greater value to the customer base.  The “can do” attitude at Juki is not limited to customers, but is part of a culture that extends throughout the company and into the sales partner channel. Juki is expanding its product offerings, installed base and support network in a maturing market — I am excited to be a part of it.”

Chris will be based in Austin, Texas.


Juki, a global leader in high-speed SMT Assembly equipment, has shipped more than 26,000 machines worldwide since 1987.  Juki has built its global image with a combination of top-quality and high-reliability machines with a reputation for world-class service and support that result in the lowest production costs for its customers.  The pioneer of the modular assembly system in 1993, Juki offers flexible solutions designed for both high-volume and high mix environments.
