About Us

Our History

In 1964, an ambitious 27-year-old drywall finisher from Omaha, NE decided to leave the hustle and bustle of big city life and wanted to make it on his own in a smaller community. With his wife and their one-year-old son, he set forth to find a community that would provide his family with not only financial security but also the security of a friendly and relatively crime-free setting. Nestled in the beautiful countryside of west-central Iowa, Denison, Iowa soon became the home of Harold and Connie Kierscht.

Harold and Connie laid the foundation for what would become Denison Drywall Contracting and Supply, Inc. This one-man operation has grown to include: retail sales, a showroom, a warehouse, a fleet of trucks, and three locations.

Denison Drywall was setting roots and growing. This reputable company was working on projects within a 100-mile radius of Denison. They soon opened a location in Jefferson, Iowa in 1977. This location closed 35 years later when the manager retired in 2012. In 1995, another office was opened in Spencer, Iowa.

Harold and Connie’s children have played a part in the family business. Kerry manages the Denison location and Shawn manages the Spencer location of Denison Drywall.

In September 2022, Harold passed away peacefully in Denison, Iowa at the age of 85.    Obituary
