Where we came From



Where We Came From

Waterjet Cutting Specialists comes from a long tradition of inventiveness and hard work.  Waterjet Cutting Specialists incorporated in 1995, although the story began many years before. 

 Dave Martin, founder of Waterjet, grew up with the All-American values. “If you give your all to everything you do and treat people fairly, in the end you’ll be rewarded” was instilled in him by his father, R.C. Martin.  R.C. Martin was a plumber & pipe fitter & in his early years Dave continued in this trade.  Then came the oil embargos of the 1970’s. Dave & R.C. worked together on a design using corn mesh in ethanol distillation.  The embargo ended before they could do much with their design, but the process sent Dave Martin in a whole new direction.  

 For a number of years following, Martin worked as a consultant in the  distillation industry, until he started creating his own water distiller design in the mid 1980’s.  For the next 10 years Dave Martin & his father continued to manufacture distillers.  They also branched out into large water bottle packaging with Martinstill corporation.  

In the mid 1990’s R.C. retired and Dave Martins’s son, Eric, joined in engineering a new line of small bottle packaging.  They also acquired a talented team of individuals to help add new perspective to the years of innovative in-house design.    Planet Earth Distilled Drinking Water incorporated as a home and office bottled water delivery company.  And Waterjet Cutting Specialists incorporated as an independent machine shop.  Waterjet Cutting Specialists now is now here to make ideas take shape.
