Precision owners and brothers John and Mark Wright already had entirely different careers before they began their business. John worked in a jewelry store in Michigan when his ex-manager showed him the proper way to sharpen barber shears. Twenty-seven years ago his ex-manager complained that no one could do it properly. Well John saw an opportunity to begin a mobile sharpening service. When he went into barber shops to sharpen their scissors, he began to observe their techniques, noticing that many of the barbers were forced to adapt to awkward scissor design. At this time, quality scissors and designs were developed and produced in Germany or Japan. So John did what any dedicated business man would do…he flew to Japan! Over twenty years later his impressive career move had allowed him to develop ergonomic scissor innovations such as the first thumb forward and rotating scissors. He maintains the quality he sought years ago by designing in-house without relying on existing designs. Since ’92 he’s been in Pittsburg and has seen boarded up buildings become busy business centers, helping him to continue making the hairdresser’s life simpler!
