King’s Campers in Wausau, Wis., is marking the company’s 20th anniversary this year.
Family owned and operated by Ron, Mike and Mark Gajewski and Les Stankowski, King’s Campers has become north central Wisconsin’s leading dealer in the RV sales and service industry, according to a news release.
These families together forged a company that has become synonymous with above-and-beyond customer care, dedication, honesty and integrity.
The Gajewskis and Stankowskis are hard working and dedicated Wausau families that have taken a very small company originally established in 1967 by Ron Gajewski (then turned over to Roger King in 1972) located on Wausau’s west side to solid growth since they re-purchased the business in 1990.
Their “can do” approach to all things work related brought them to a turning point within five years of ownership; relocation. The families recognized the Wausau area’s future population development and took the innovative step of relocating the business to what was once an abandoned building located at 5507 Lilac Ave, Wausau in 1995. This location was seen by King’s Campers owners as a property that would provide them with the utmost visibility and also would provide the opportunity for expansion to better serve a growing population.
As a result of this vision and drive, King’s Campers now covers five acres with new and pre-owned products and includes 12 service bays to repair or service any make or model RV. Approximately 40% of sales come from out-of-state customers.
Ron Gajewski, general manager for King’s Campers, stated, “Reaching this milestone in our company’s history is a fantastic achievement. Twenty years have gone by so quickly, and yet at the same time, it feels like forever. So many things have happened in those years. But truly the best part is the customers. I’ve met so many wonderful people through this job. It’s just been a wonderful experience. I’m an engineer by trade and a sales person by choice because I really enjoy working with and meeting folks.”
“This anniversary is a true testament to our owners and staff, “ John Gajewski, sales manager added. “I truly appreciate all of them. They’ve all worked together to make this company what it is today. We all should be very proud of all the achievements King’s Campers has earned over the years. In looking ahead, we can easily look back to see what we’ve done right and use that experience to help us improve all aspects of our operation, to include continued partnering with quality manufacturers, and providing above-and-beyond service.”
King’s Campers sells KZ, Open Range, Salem, Tiffin and Winnebago RVs and services all RV makes and models.
King’s Campers was named an RVB Top 50 Dealer for 2008-2009.
