Bienie’s Garage and Body Shop was established in 1957 by my uncle Virgil Bien and my father, Leroy Bien at 1515 S. Main, Ottawa Kansas. In 1961 Virgil built a new facility at 319 west Wilson, where the UPS Building in Ottawa is today. At the time it was state of the art in both Mechanical and Body repair. In 1971, my father, LeRoy built a new facility for Body work at 104 S. Poplar. In 1972 he opened business full time. Bienie’s Body Shop was a full service Body Shop in the repair of cars and trucks. The Facility was unique in that he had the frame machine built into the floor. It was well known around that our frame work was top notch. Having 5 boys it was just natural that most of us would get a taste of Collision repair.
