How it began

The business concept was born in 1991 between Rob Gilman and Bill Gile.

In the beginning, it was decided to stay small to keep costs down and not overextend ourselves. That way we could concentrate on providing the best local information possible.

We wanted to strive to be hyper-local and as accurate as possible with our forecasts offering more detail than what was on TV or radio. We had to come up with a name that described that as best as possible and when we talked about how 'precise' we wanted to be it seemed like that was it... PRECISION WEATHER FORECASTING.

In the beginning, it was decided to stay small to keep costs down and not overextend ourselves. That way we could concentrate on providing the best local information possible.

The biggest challenge to overcome, at the time, was to be available with answers for DPW superintendents of the financial benefits of the service, while helping to ease much of their pain as to how to plan out attacking storm events. We also had to show that what they would get from us was better than anything on TV or what was coming from the few other more national companies.

As time went by word of mouth helped to spread our reliability and accuracy to other towns and business entities and our reputation began to grow. The first year we were forecasting for 7 towns, the next year 12, then 22 the year after that and we began expanding, improving efficiency of resources to DPW ‘s and facilities management.
