Let us tell you all about Truebite Inc. Truebite was incorporated 1985.

Research and development started in 1979. Our founder, Ed Calafut needed to de-grout bathroom tiles in his home. He quickly became frustrated with the tools and options available. Consequently, he created a custom cutting tool for this purpose. In short, the company was born. In summary, over the next several years a variety of cutting tools, drills, and grinding bits were developed using various abrasives, carbide and diamonds.

These tools continue to support the ceramic industry. They are still used by hobbyists and tradesmen today. Click here to learn more.  Many leading tool and bit companies still use Ed’s patents and designs.

Ed Calafut,
Founder of Truebite Inc.


Ed Calafut of Vestal, New York founded Truebite Inc. in 1985. He has a unique entrepreneurial spirit. Thus, research and development began several years prior to the formation of his own company.

Ed was formally educated as an Electrical Engineer.  He spent 14 years working for IBM. He gained experience in areas such as manufacturing technologies, business management, purchasing, technical support, and program management. Therefore, Ed became proficient in the process of new product development. Certainly, he learned to manage all of the resources needed to take a product from concept to production.

After several years Ed was ready for a new challenge.  When not working long days or traveling throughout the United States for IBM, Ed was working evenings and weekends to slowly building the framework for Truebite.  This included the development of the product line. Truebite first started out as a niche business focused on cutting bits for the ceramics hobby industry.  Meanwhile, Ed’s passion as an inventor took over and the company grew in many directions.

Ed remains active at Truebite and attributes his success to doing the right thing at the right time. He believes that making his customers successful is the key to his success.  Certainly, spending the extra time to help someone in need is never wasted. In other words, providing the customer with coaching, resources and direction facilitates their growth.

This is a satisfying part of his involvement with Truebite, Inc.  “Communication is key! If we are not involved and invested in our customer’s success, then we are not close enough to provide them the support and direction they may need. Solving an issue before it becomes a problem is our goal…”
