I'm often asked, "How did you get into the assembly business?"

The short version: Folks couldn't find a reliable person to assemble the products they were buying. It was something I already did as a hobby, so I turned it into a profession.

The long version: During my college years, I worked for Sears.

We had floor-models for the biggest items we sold, such as treadmills, ellipticals, and weight machines. They could be hard to sell sometimes because they were often loose, squeaky, or wobbly.

To make them easier to sell, I started repairing all the existing machines, and then started assembling the new models as they arrived. This allowed our customers to see how nice each machine could be.

But the big question...once they bought it, who would assemble it at their place?

At that time, our store only offered delivery and installation of appliances, but had no offerings for exercise equipment. It was the store manager who suggested I consider providing these services for him. The idea was simple, but it had big implications. It would require that I:

  1. No longer work there.
  2. Start a new business.
  3. In a new niche market.
  4. While still in college.
  5. Just before the .

Of course since you're reading this you know I made it through. Precise Assemblies was founded in , and in I earned that degree in Construction Management from Southeast Missouri State.

How has Precise Asssemblies evolved from just Exercise Equipment to all the seemingly unrelated services I offer now? Visit the About Us page to read more.

Many people don't know this, but my original degree choice was Computer Science, which may explain why I like to dabble in <HTML> and {CSS}. This entire website was-and-is hand-coded by myself using only Notepad++.
