Iowa governor Terry Branstad recently visited Creative Edge Master Shop's headquarters in Fairfield, Iowa to help celebrate the company's 25 years of waterjet innovation. 

After a tour of the 100,000 square-foot production facility, Jim Belilove, Creative Edge president, introduced Branstad to the crowd of employees, vendors and community members.

“Welcome governor Branstad to Creative Edge and thank you for helping us note and celebrate our 25th anniversary year. This company was born and nurtured in the fertile soil of Iowa’s entrepreneurial culture. We are independent, self- reliant and innovative, like so many of Iowa’s manufacturers."

Branstad took the podium thanking Belilove for the opportunity to see Creative Edge's work first hand. "Obviously we see these projects we’ve done in the state of Iowa but [we] also see the international work that you’ve done so I want to congratulate you on 25 years of success and the great work that you do and the opportunity that people get to enjoy it. It is unique, especially the stonework."
