Creative Edge Master Shop Purchased by Weaton Capital
Fairfield, Iowa, January 11, 2019--Creative Edge Master Shop, which was founded by Jim Belilove 30 years ago, has announced a transition of ownership to a chosen buyer, Weaton Capital, which will continue Belilove’s legacy and retain operations in Fairfield, Iowa.
The sale includes two other divisions of Creative Edge (ToolKeepers and Resilient Flooring) with Belilove remaining as a principal for four years.
In 1988, abrasive-waterjet technology was relatively unknown, used for cutting frozen vegetables and windshields, its artistic potential untapped. Creative Edge pioneered the use of waterjet-technology to create intricate, Renaissance-quality designs for stone and tile flooring. Today Creative Edge is known worldwide for creating more than 10,000 floors and wall murals in hotel lobbies, airports, children’s hospitals, churches, and government buildings.
Creative Edge says that it is one of the few Iowa companies that exports a U.S.-made product to other countries, contributing to both the national and local economies.
