30 years of creativity and innovation with waterjet technology.

Partnering to create breathtaking spaces since 1979. 

In 1979, Creative Edge founder Jim Belilove merged his passion for art, architecture, and geology with a curiosity about the capabilities of waterjet technology. The results of his focused dedication and unique vision is the first and largest US waterjet operation dedicated to architectural interiors applications.
