I'm often asked "How did you get into the assembly business?"
The short version is folks I met couldn't find a reliable company to assemble their products. This was already something I did as a hobby, so a hobby turned into a business ... a win-win for everyone!
The long version is during my college years, I worked for a retailer with working floor-models. Most of those floor-models were loose or squeaked or wobbled — leaving bad impressions on customers — making them hard to sell.
I began fixing the existing floor models — then as new models arrived — I assembled them correctly the first time. All our floor-models then worked as perfect as the one that would soon be in the customers home.
At that time, the retailer didn't offer in-home services: delivery, assembly, or repair. Our store manager suggested that I consider doing just that ... in-home assembly. The idea was quite simple but had big implications. It would require me to quit, start a new business, while in a down economy, in a new-niche market — all while still in college!
As you know I followed through, and Precise Assemblies was founded in 2006.
While growing Precise Assemblies, I earned a Bachelors degree in Construction Management, from Southeast Missouri State University in Cape Girardeau, MO. During my senior year, I was chosen for a select group of students to help re-design one of the university's most congested areas, known as the Scully-Rhodes Plaza. That project was completed the year after I graduated.
Some will be interested in knowing I am a Dave Ramsey listener when time permits. Even before knowing who Dave was, Precise Assemblies was 'assembled' organically — debt-free!
