Hello, my name is Dan Kerkhoff, and I'm the
owner of A-1 Sharpening Service. I live in De Pere,
Wisconsin - I actually live next door to my business.
I bought this business in May of 1996, which was already
called A-1 Sharpening Service.
The original owner lived in Green Bay, Wisconsin, and ran
A-1 Sharpening Service as a side-business, working
approximately 10 to 16 hours per week. Over the years, I
have added to his existing customer list by word of mouth
and with minimal advertising. I now operate A-1 Sharpening
Service as a full-time business.
Initially, I wanted to upgrade one of my
machines to a CC Machine for sharpening cold saws. With a
little hard-work and additional investment, I was able to
purchase a machine with more capability, accuracy, and
turn-around time and competitive prices has enabled my
customer base to grow. My customer base is as small the
neighbor-next-door; and as large as a corporation that sells
I'm looking forward to doing business with
