This is Fred Ball for Zions Bank, speaking on business.
When speaking with Dave Karren and George Laws of AA Carbide, Inc. a provider of Professional Cutting Tools for Woodworking and Metalworking in Salt Lake City, I learned a great deal about Carbide Cutting Tools (of all things!), including how important they are. Without the ability to cut woods and metal, modern day construction wouldn't be possible. And AA Carbide makes sure end users have the best cutting tools available and that the tools stay sharp!
However, the saw blade shop doesn't just sharpen blades, it also sells, services, and manufactures Carbide Blades, Router Bits and Shaper Cutters for all types of wood machining. I found myself quite amazed with the selection of Saw Blades, Router Bits and Shaper Cutters on display. Many of the blades featured in the display cases are, in fact, completely unique to AA Carbide.
Also unique to AA Carbide is the machinery it uses. AA Carbide has several computerized and automated machines for grinding and inspection purposes. Many of the machines are purchased from around the world, and if need be, manufactured in house. Some of these machines are the only ones of their kind in this area, which allows AA Carbide the ability to custom tailor cutting tools to customers' applications and provide the sharpest tools possible.
AA Carbide's reputation continues to grow. Dave says the company's success is derived from its commitment to quality, service and its outstanding team of highly qualified personnel. Access to AA Carbide's services is not restricted to those solely within reasonable driving distance. Dave says the shop provides a pick-up and delivery system that stretches across Utah and into neighboring states. AA Carbide even has representatives available to go out to job sites to provide consultation on cutting applications.
I'd say from the looks of it, AA Carbide certainly has an edge over the competition.
