For the City Times
The year was 1966, Lyndon Johnson was President and Stevens Point resident, Dennis Adamski was 19 years old. Barely out of high school, he took a job with Schierl Tire & Service. Little did he know his career would span many positions within Schierl Tire and Service — with this fall celebrating 50 years of association.
Adamski began his career with Schierl Tire and Service Centers as an auto technician at the first, and original, location in Stevens Point. As the family-owned, company grew, Adamski‘s talents and ability to “fix anything” was quickly recognized; soon he was called upon to serve as the team leader in the maintenance of company vehicles, transports, car washes, and heavy trucks.
He was a key contributor in the development of the company’s Commercial and Farm Division, where he continues to thrive and service key accounts to this day.
Adamski was recently honored with a luncheon celebration attended by company leaders, coworkers, many friends and family members including his wife, Shirley and their children and grandchildren.
“It is nearly unheard of for any company to have someone work with them for 50 years,” said Tim Schierl, Co-CEO of Team Schierl Companies. “It is a wonderful accomplishment we are proud to been a part of.”
When not busy at work Dennis does enjoy hunting, fishing, working in his shop and spending time with family and friends.
Team Schierl Companies was established in 1956 by Butch (John) Schierl in the home heating oil business. Today, TSC is owned and operated by John’s three sons, Tim, Fritz, and Bill Schierl. TSC operates 57 retail locations in Wisconsin and the upper peninsula of Michigan focusing primarily in service industries.
