About SERVPRO of Athens

Owners of SERVPRO of Athens

Our History

SERVPRO of Athens opened for business in 1980. During our 38 years of history we have grown and experienced many changes.  We still meet and provide services for customers that were serviced by our original owner, Terry Osbolt.  Harry and Pat Mangleburg purchased SERVPRO of Athens in 1984.  Peter Wood was hired in March of 1984 as a Production Technician.  Peter Wood stayed with the franchise for 15 years and purchased the franchise in 1999.  Two years later Peter’s wife, Claudia, came onboard as Co-Owner.  Peter and Claudia Wood are proud owners of SERVPRO of Athens and enjoy watching the company grow with the community.
