About G&W


G&W Industrial Sales is a manufacturer’s representative and distributor located in Parkersburg, WV. We serve WV and border counties of Ohio and Kentucky for a variety of engineering fluid process equipment manufacturers.

History

G & W Industrial Sales was founded in 1964 by Jack Wood and Bob Gunnoe. Mr. Wood and Mr. Gunnoe formed G & W Industrial Sales by buying out the representation territory in West Virginia and bordering Ohio and Kentucky counties from E.V. White Company. E.V. White was a large manufacturer's representative with offices in Cleveland, Charleston and Cincinnati.

The "G & W" in the name comes from Gunnoe and Wood. They operated a company out of Charleston, West Virginia. In 1974, Mr. Gunnoe died suddenly and left Mr. Wood as the sole owner of G & W. From that time through 1988, Mr. Wood operated with one other salesman. In 1988, Ed Borkowski joined G & W Industrial Sales with the intention of buying Mr. Wood's interest in the business. Mr. Borkowski purchased Mr. Wood's interests on August 31, 1989. In March of 1990, G & W Industrial Sales moved the main office from Charleston to Parkersburg, WV. A branch office was left in Charleston. In January 1998, G & W moved into a new 4000 ft2 building in Parkersburg to allow more office space and shop space. In July of 1998, the branch office in Charleston was closed and operations consolidated in the Parkersburg facility.

In the early days of G & W Industrial Sales, the company consisted of Jack Wood and Bob Gunnoe, plus inside clerical and sales support. The current company consists of Ed Borkowski, President, and Andrew Borkowski, working as salesmen covering the territory. Eric Borkowski and Connie Watson provide the inside sales support and customer service. G & W Industrial Sales has maintained a strong list of principals throughout most of its history. We have a long term association with Lightnin mixers, BS&B rupture disks and Wilden® air operated, double diaphragm pumps. G & W Industrial Sales is primarily a manufacturer's representative, although the Wilden® pump line is a distributor line and we do buy and resell several product lines.

G & W Industrial Sales primarily serves the chemical processing industry in West Virginia and bordering counties of Ohio and Kentucky.
