Edward Rangle started digital measuring in 2005 in the kitchen countertop industry. When he realized the capabilities of laser measuring, he opened his own company and measured for fabricators on a wide variety of commercial and residential jobsites.
“I love measuring with the laser because it gives me the flexibility to measure jobs that I could never have done the old-fashioned way,” he says. “I show up to a jobsite looking professional, carrying high tech equipment and the customers are impressed. It sets me apart from my competition, something that every company must now focus on. It’s so fast that the customers love that I can spend more time with them talking about the details of the job and working on designs.”
“The fabricators love it too because there is virtually no rework during installation. Everything fits like a glove. They save so much time and money on the installs because they have accurate measurements when they are fabricating each piece.”
“Building on my own extensive experience I have gained over the years, I was asked to manage all measurers and CNC operators at the Countertop Factory in Addison, IL, an offer I couldn’t pass up. ”
The Countertop Factory is one of the state’s largest countertop fabricators. In 2016, the company made a large investment to expand their woodworking capabilities to include architectural millworking which has quickly become a large percentage of their work.
