Tennessee Fab Shop Switches Gears with Jet Edge Water Jet Cutting Machine
Racing Pit Box Manufacturer Murrco Fabrication Opens Water Jet Job Shop, Extends Customer Base Off Racetrack
By: Jet Edge Inc
Since launching its waterjet cutting service in August 2016, Murrco has fast become the waterjet shop (http://www.murrco.com/)
The company also is cutting a variety of racecar parts for local teams, as well as parts for its Murrco signature pit boxes.
Murrco equipped its waterjet shop with a brand new industrial CNC waterjet cutting (http://www.jetedge.com/)
Mike Murray, Murrco's president/owner, decided to add waterjet cutting (http://www.murrco.com/
"The waterjet service market is booming and I wanted to get involved and establish myself and my company as a waterjet service provider," he said. "I plan on using my Jet Edge waterjet to provide quality and accurate parts and products in a job shop environment. As time goes on, I'm sure some new products will be added to Murrco's racing product line. Production type work in the motorsports industry is the goal."
Waterjet's ability to cut an endless array of materials and its reach into multiple industries were very attractive to Murray, whose business sustained the Great Recession and is now benefitting from the rebounding economy.

While Murrco's waterjet shop has been keeping Murray busy, he still finds time now and then to trade his shop apron for a fire suit. Murray races in several late model competitions, including the All-American 400 in Nashville, where he drove his #48 Chevrolet with sponsorship from waterjet (http://www.jetedge.com/)
"I have been involved in racing for about 40 years," Murray said, noting that he also plans to use his waterjet to help improve his team's performance on the racetrack.
"We're excited to have Jet Edge on our team," he continued. "Having a waterjet broadens our imagination of the things that we can make in house for the car."
Murray said he is very happy with his decision to go with a Jet Edge waterjet cutting system.
"Why did I choose Jet Edge? All you have to do is research your options when it comes to a waterjet company," he said. "When I decided that I wanted a waterjet, I researched for about 14 months. Reading, talking to those that owned waterjets and more reading. Jet Edge offered everything, quality, service, options and competitive pricing. The IGEMS software is so easy to learn and has endless options for operation.
"I made the right choice and would put my waterjet up against anything on the market. You can't beat service after the sale, and that is what Jet Edge delivers. The experience I have so far has been great, not only with the equipment but also with the support they offer. My experience with Jet Edge so far has been two thumbs up! I would recommend them to the guy like myself that is just now entering the market and to the big manufacturers that are looking for ways to cut cost and improve productivity. Anyone reading this can feel free to call me with any questions on my waterjet on a personal level."
