Abrasive Waterjet Services was founded in 2008 by Tim Stonnell.
After seeing abrasive waterjets on youtube and the interesting possibility for these CNC machines, we started to look at what systems where available in New Zealand.
From previous experience in the printing industry, where backup and support only came from overseas and could take weeks, we
knew we had to look for a waterjet manufacturer with local agents and support based in New Zealand.
We found Omax which had an agent, Roadrunner/Jetex based in Bulls.
Having a New Zealand agent that not only sold but also ran an Omax waterjet made it a lot easier to decide on the Omax system.
Better still we could view it in action, on location in Bulls.
We decided on a 5555 with a 40 hp pump.
