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.
Today, Creative Edge celebrates more than 30 years in partnership with architects, designers, artists, contractors, and installers, delivering breathtaking works in built environments around the globe. Our skilled team of designers, engineers and technicians utilize 13 specialized waterjet machines to deliver award-winning spaces for our clients.
