Safety Blades can be found on some of the most challenging and complex construction projects in the world. They’re used by water departments, foundries, and fire departments throughout the United States and Canada and by the U. S. federal government and Department of Defense. One of the reasons for their widespread use is how they’re designed.
Desert Diamond Industries designs its vacuum-brazed products with the participation of labor unions to increase safe work hours, cut costs, and increase profits for its customers. More importantly, though, these diamond blades and grinders are designed by people with real-world experience.
Nick’s expertise as a concrete cutter and his talks with other workers “made me a market expert,” he said. “Every other diamond blade company out there – the majority of them – has no practical application, no field experience.”
That experience is important, he said: knowing what it’s like “working in the field, day in and day out, 10, 12, 15 hours a day, actually seeing what it’s like to be tired, you’re exhausted, you’re wet, you’re cold, blades aren’t working right, every possibility you can have with an instrument in the field.”
