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. This 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, which had floor-models for the biggest items we sold, such as treadmills, ellipticals, and weight machines. Most of them were loose, squeaked, or wobbled — making them hard to sell.

I took to repairing all the existing floor models, and as new models arrived each year, I assembled them new out of the box. It allowed our customers to see how nice each machine could be.

But once they bought it, who would assemble it?

At that time, we didn't offer delivery and in-home assembly for exercise equipment. The store manager was the one who suggested I consider providing these services for them. The idea was simple, but it had big implications. It would require that I:

  1. Quit.
  2. Start a new business.
  3. In a new/niche market.
  4. Just before the 2007 .
  5. While in the middle of college.

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

Many people don't know this, but my original degree was going to be in Computer Science. In my spare time, I dabble in <HTML> and {CSS}. This entire site was hand-coded, and is maintained by myself using only Notepad++. If you have any suggestions or fixes, please let me know and I can implement your change immediately!
