Spare Bedroom into State-of-the-Art Facilities

From the start, dti™ has been a company deeply rooted in the American Dream. Founded in 1992 and operating out of the spare bedroom of the founder and president, Ted Jernigan’s home, in Olympia, WA, dti has made a long journey to where it is today. Though the journey was not always easy, with an at home business and family to support, the company prospered through Ted’s knowledge of what the waterjet industry was desperately lacking along with the support of the people who believed he could see his dream to fruition.

dti - Our Story - beginnings

Backed with 12 years of on the job experience building, installing and troubleshooting waterjet systems as a field engineer and special projects manager for Flow international, Ted was well aware of the industry’s weakest link – unpredictable and unreliable ruby and sapphire waterjet orifices. With this insight and new, innovative diamond processing techniques, the small spare bedroom business quickly expanded to the garage and on up to the three building facility it is today.
