Tempe, Arizona, July 3, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Thirteen years ago on the Fourth of July, Arizona couple David and Marla Stern signed off the paperwork and officially incorporated their new business venture. Precise Corporate Staging was born and what started as a dream with very humble beginnings has today become one of the leading providers of technical solutions to the special events and entertainment industry. With two busy warehouses, more than 20 employees, and offices in Arizona and Georgia, Precise Corporate Staging has successfully transformed an entrepreneurial vision into a globally recognized, industry leader.
"Over the past decade, the special events and entertainment industry changed drastically," said David Stern, founder and President of Precise Corporate Staging. "We started our business just as the economy slumped and we knew that we had to evolve with the industry to avoid being left behind."
"Though there are many factors which have attributed to our success, underlying them all is an unwavering commitment to meet our customers' needs," added Stern. "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."
The company's anniversary offers an opportunity to reflect on the changing trends. 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 this year including the Parnelli Award and the Blue Ribbon Small Business of the Year by the US Chamber of Commerce.
Precise Corporate Staging is now in midst of summer concert season, which includes Alice Cooper's 2013 Tour, Rock USA, Country USA and Sturgis Buffalo Chip, the largest music festival in motorcycling.
To commemorate the company's 13th anniversary, Precise Corporate Staging has updated its logo and revamped digital marketing efforts as well as released a fun "13 things you didn't know about us" statement. But more importantly, the company is also renewing its commitment to the community and seeking to assist Arizona and Georgia-based charities that support military causes with their fundraising events, by providing sound and lighting equipment free of charge. 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."
