Personalized, Professional Waterjet Services
Introduce yourselves to the company that introduced upscale waterjet work to your industry.
Dimensional Stone, April 1996
It takes more than a visionary artist however, to run a successful company. It takes a solid businessman. That's where partner Jim Belilove steps in, Born in San Francisco, Jim received his MBA at Harvard University prior to embarking on a successful career of building computer-controlled production machines, When Jim joined up with Harri six years ago, Creative Edge had a single waterjet machine. Today, with 15 state of the art machines running seven days a week, working around the clock, Jim's vision of being the primary waterjet source on earth has more than been reached.
"We don't just want to be the biggest," he states, "we want to be the best."
Apparently this is true also, with regular, customers such as Disney, Radisson, Florsheim, Hilton and many others, Creative Edge Corp. is constantly called on to provide waterjet expertise for the most demanding and seemingly impossible jobs,
"Creative Edge is the best," says major-league tile and stone contactor Larry Rheinschmidt, Jr. "When we want waterjet work, we know the company to contact."
And now, so do you. So, call (800) 394-8145 and ask for Jim or Harri. You won't be patched through some impersonal voice-mail prompt, and they won't hide behind an assistant who screens their calls, Jim and Harri are accessible. They're good guys with whom to talk. Most importantly, they want to provide you with the best waterjet service in the world. Visit Creative Edge at ITSE at Booth No. 1053 and introduce yourself to the people who introduced upscale waterjet work to your industry.■
