Kirby's Profile

Foley Belsaw Sharpening Specialists Since 2017

Located in Minnesota

My Education and Experience

I started my career in the outdoor power equipment industry where I was able to use my education as an auto mechanic in various roles in parts and service management. It was in this industry where I was introduced to Foley grinders.

History with Sharpening

I've been associated with Foley products for more than 40 years. Many of the products that were made then are still in use today. It is a testament to the quality of the products. In fact, we still sell wheels for many of these durable machines.

Working with Foley-Belsaw

In 2006, I accepted a product management position within Foley-Belsaw. In this role, I also had the additional opportunity to be an advisor in their small engine school. Over the years I saw many changes within the company and in the sharpening industry. The company itself started over 90 years ago, providing unique experiences you can't get from new businesses.

From Foley-Belsaw to Sharpening Supplies

When Sharpening Supplies purchased Foley-Belsaw Sharpening in 2017, I took on a new role with Sharpening Supplies. In this new role, I help customers with Foley-Belsaw Sharpening questions, help manage the Foley-Belsaw Sharpening product line and train my co-workers on the Foley-Belsaw products and history. I work out of my home office in Minnesota.

Fun Fact:

As it has always been, almost all Foley-Belsaw products are made in the USA.

Dear Mr. Carmona: From the first time I spoke to you by telephone, I have been greatly impressed by your willingness, even your eagerness to take your time from your own personal activities to assist me. I am awed by your extensive knowledge and work in a field that is such a benefit to so many people in so many kind of activities. Your website is a real asset, and a testimony to your desire to be helpful. I wish to thank you again for your kindness as well as your fervor in the way your company deals with interested parties, even those who may purchase nothing, or only small items, as I have done.
