Precision H2O recently celebrated its 10th anniversary as a waterjet company, which cuts tile, stone, porcelain and other various materials into complex murals, detailed signage, corporate logos and geometric shapes throughout the U.S. The company operates from facilities in Spokane, WA, and Salt Lake City, UT. The beginnings of Precision H2O step back to a trade show in 1992 attended by founder Dick Baiter and his wife Lynn. There, the couple observed a waterjet demonstration and knew the displayed technology would benefit their existing company, Quarry Tile. Quickly, the waterjet idea jumped from Quarry Tile to its own venue, Precision H2O.
