Our Story



WARDJet offers over 20 different models of waterjets from small ballscrew driven waterjets to linear motion units with high accuracy that cut at 7,000 inches per minute. No matter what your waterjet need, we have a system that will work for you. WARDJet is also known for building custom engineered systems to meet unique needs.

WARDJet takes a different approach to much of what we do. In fact, up until 2003 we were one of the largest capacity waterjet job shops in the USA when the company elected to switch gears and focus on building new waterjets for the industry. In the years following, WARDJet has gained a strong worldwide presence with many machines exported annually. WARDJet also builds a number of products to improve waterjet cutting and reduce consumable costs, including the patented WARD Pro, a waterjet abrasive recycling system.

Richard Ward is the founder and president of WARDJet, which has been operating in the waterjet cutting industry since 1995. Born and raised in Zimbabwe, Richard Ward attended the University of Cape Town and began his career as a Civil Engineer. In 1991, he had the opportunity to come to the USA on a 2 year contract to manage a company so he moved his wife and two young children across the globe with only a suitcase each. After the contract was completed, Richard started his first company in his garage–one mile from where the present 220,000 square foot facility WARDJet operates.

WARDJet builds quality waterjet cutting systems that have earned the respect of thousands of people, companies and customers all over the world.
