Sirl's Automotive, Inc was founded as a blacksmith shop in 1914 by Michael Sirl. By the mid 1920s Michael saw the future was in the automobile and started to repair them for local farmers. His son, Ralph Sirl, took over the family business in the early 1940s. Ralph built the first stage of the present facility and removed the blacksmith shop in front of the new building in 1951. In 1962, Ralph's son, Dale, purchased the business from his parents and began to expand to its present 10,000 square foot complete automotive repair facility.
In the early 1970's, Dale saw the need for well-trained employees, but found it very difficult to find them. He then decided it was best to teach them himself. In 2001 he completed a 31 year career as Automotive Service Technology Instructior for Parma City Schools. Dale holds teaching certificates from Kent State University, General Motors, Ford, Chrysler and Toyota. Over 50% of Sirl's employees are past students, and even some are from Dale's first classes. All technicians are ASE certified and most are Master Technicians and more. Collision repair technicians also are I-CAR certified at gold and platinum levels. Only the best of the best repair and service technicians service your vehicles at Sirl's Automotive.
In 2004, Sirl's Automotive, Inc will celebrate its 90th year at that same location at 7541 York Road in Parma, Ohio. It's future is in place with the fourth generation continuing to service your automotive needs. Sons Dale Jr. and Gary have already spent 20 years learning the business from the ground up to insure the family tradition of unsurpassed automotive service for its customers. – less–ZoomInfo
