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 something I already 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, Sears, with working and usable floor-models. Most of those floor-models were loose, wobbled, or squeaked — making them hard to sell.
I fixed the existing floor models, then as new models arrived, I assembled those correctly the first time. Our floor-models then worked as perfect as the model that would be in someone's home.
At that time, we didn't offer services such as in-home delivery, assembly, and repair. The store manager suggested I consider providing these services for them and others. The idea was quite simple but had big implications. It would require that 1: I quit. 2: Start a new business from scratch. 3: In a new/niche market. 4: At the beginning of . 5: While in the middle of college.
Of course, since you're reading this, I followed through and Precise Assemblies was founded in . In I earned a bachelor's degree in construction management from Southeast Missouri University in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.
I was a heavy Dave Ramsey listener right out of college, and now listen when time allows. Precise Assemblies was 'assembled' debt-free and is growing organically debt-free!
I also dabble in HTML and CSS in my spare time. This entire site was hand-coded and is maintained by myself. If you have any suggestions, I would love to hear it and can probably implement your change very quickly!
