How It Started…
I want to thank you for taking the time to visit Precision Sports’ site. I also want to thank those who have either purchased a hoop from us or allowed us the opportunity to provide any of our services to them. The trust and support that is shown by allowing us to do what we do best is greatly appreciated by the entire Precision Sports team!
Precision Sports started and continues to be a locally owned, family run business. It began in February 2004 as Sports Equipment Services. While going to school and working at a local sporting goods store, I completed my first job working out of a 2-door Ford Explorer with my tools in hand. On a Saturday morning, I assembled a home gym in the basement of a Milwaukee residence. It doesn’t seem like much, but it was a huge step for a 19-year-old kid who had only done that once before. With the success of that one job, I was graciously allowed by the store to provide delivery and install services to their customers. Knowing I needed to provide a great, reliable service to be able to make this into what it is today, I was able to then add 4 other MKE area stores, after that the surrounding area stores, now totaling 11 stores and counting.
After 5 years of running this as a side business, I knew I had to decide my future. So, in 2009 Precision Sports Services, LLC was created.
I could not have done it alone though. I have had so much help from my family and friends as the years have gone by. My father, Dale, still active in a lot of the operations with the business taught me how to install my very first inground hoop and has provided me with a wealth of knowledge and experience that I would not have gotten from anywhere else. He also, is the brains and ingenuity behind a lot of the custom equipment we use today. Precision Sports wouldn’t be where it is today without the work and time he has put into it.
It takes a lot more than just 2 people to grow a business and I have been very fortunate to have a lot of very willing and dedicated people who continue to make Precision Sports what it is today.
Around 2010 my cousin, Phillip Rodriguez came aboard and has been incredibly helpful with organizing day to day operations, training new techs, and most of all providing new and more efficient ways to provide an even better service to our customers. The areas I lack, he excels.
He was the catalyst behind our one of a kind hoop install truck that has set us apart from all the other hoop install companies. His stamp is on the website as well, being the main person behind all our media videos and many of our photos.
Recently, I have brought my mom, Martha on to handle a lot of our office operations. So much for retirement, she has had a huge hand in customer service and making sure our techs’ schedules are on point daily.
We have been very fortunate to earn the trust of some very important local companies that allow us to provide their customers with any of our services. We also, have been able to be credited as one of Spalding’s top contractors. If there is a job they need done right the first time they call us every time. We have been all over the country providing installations services for them and their customers, the most recent the Deputy Commissioner of the NBA!
Of course, we could not continue without the hard-working techs we employ. A service based business is not always easy and there are so many opportunities for all of us to learn from, but we have built a solid crew with some very hard-working individuals, that I believe to be some of the best in the business. So, if Jason, Jose, Juan, Cameron, or any of our other techs are onsite at your job don’t worry, your job will get done with the same precision and care it was done with from the beginning. It’s the only way we know how to do it!
