Smooth Transition of Customer Accounts Underway
Lisa Higginbotham, CRS, co-owner of 5Star Awards, Inc. in Cary, has announced that the company has acquired Cutting Edge Engraving, Inc., based in Raleigh. Cutting Edge owner Matthew Kane is stepping back from the company he founded in 1989 to devote more time to family and community service.
5Star Awards and Cutting Edge Engraving are both successful award-winning local businesses devoted to high quality in designing and creating corporate and personal gifts and awards.
In a letter to Cutting Edge customers, Higginbotham wrote: “I want to make sure that I meet each of you, whether through email or in person, so that the transition is as smooth and successful as possible. My team and I look forward to serving you and exceeding your expectations. Be assured that you will receive the same quality and care that you are accustomed to from Cutting Edge Engraving. I am honored that Matthew chose us to acquire his business, and I promise to live up to his trust.”
“We are good friends with Matthew and Sonia Kane, and we are grateful to Matthew for coming to us,” Higginbotham said. “This is a wonderful opportunity for 5Star Awards, and we are very excited about this purchase.”
“When it came time to sell the business that I have nurtured since 1989, it was important to me that I put my customers in the hands of a company that has a history of keeping their promises and providing exceptional service,” said Kane. “The one and only company I approached was 5Star Awards, and I’m confident my customers will be impressed and comfortable with Lisa and her team.”
