Tempe, AZ, July 3, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fourteen years ago on the Fourth of July, husband and wife team David and Marla Stern signed off the paperwork and officially incorporated their new business venture. Precise Corporate Staging was born and from very humble beginnings, the company has gradually grown to become one of the leading providers of technical solutions to the special events and entertainment industry. With two busy warehouses in Arizona and in Georgia, more than 20 employees, huge contracts that include providing lighting and sound equipment to massive festivals like Rock USA, Country USA and Sturgis Buffalo Chip Motorcycle Rally, Precise Corporate Staging has successfully transformed an entrepreneurial vision into a globally recognized, industry leader.

"It has been an incredible journey," said David Stern, founder and President of Precise Corporate Staging. "Looking back at the last fourteen years I think back of the humble start, when all we had was a rental storage unit. We have certainly grown and we had to overcome tremendous challenges to grow this business, but we never gave up. We couldn't have done it without hard work and dedication of all of our employees and contractors."

"Running a business like ours takes tremendous dedication. We owe our growth primarily to the fact that we always put our customers first," added Marla Stern, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer. "Service, equipment and dedicated, highly qualified team - those all are the key elements that positively impacted our customers and our company and carried us through challenging economic times."

Precise Corporate Staging prides itself on staying ahead of the changing trends of the industry. David Stern started his career in the entertainment industry in the early 80s touring with stars like Meatloaf and Bon Jovi. Building on that experience allowed him to develop a strong network and solid relationships to grow from. Despite numerous challenges, including nearly having to close their business after the economic downturn following 9/11, David and Marla pushed through year after year, making countless personal sacrifices to keep the business growing.

Their dedication is evident in the company's growth and success. Today Precise Corporate Staging is leading the way in serving high-profile clients for both: corporate events and entertainment divisions of the company. The company was also recognized with several awards including winning for two consecutive years the prestigious Blue Ribbon Small Business of the Year award from the US Chamber of Commerce.

Precise Corporate Staging is now in midst of summer concert season, which includes RibFest, Rock USA, Country USA and Sturgis Buffalo Chip, the largest music festival in motorcycling.

To commemorate the company's 14th anniversary, Precise Corporate Staging is renewing its commitment to the community and seeking to assist Arizona and Georgia-based charities that support military causes with their fundraising events. Helping such organizations and showing appreciation for the men and women of our country's armed forces is a personal passion for David and Marla Stern, because their own son, Matthew Stern, is a sergeant in the US Army.

"We never take for granted the freedom and the rights that we have as citizens of the United States of America," said Marla Stern, company's CEO. "Brave men and women put their lives on the line each day to ensure we can continue living our lives and running our businesses. I couldn't imagine a better day to celebrate the anniversary of our company than on Independence Day."

But there is one more anniversary that this truly "All-American" couple is celebrating on Independence Day. "It was Fourth of July in 1980 when this story really has its start," added Marla. "David and I met on Independence Day in New Jersey, and the rest, as they say - is history."
