SERVPRO Owner Renovates 3rd Property
SERVPRO® of Broome, Tompkins & Tioga Counties now occupies a 3rd Binghamton Property on 146 Main Street, in addition to the 18 South Washington Ave “green building” (acquired 2002), and their Main Offices located on 134 Conklin Ave (acquired 2010).
Before each acquisition the properties stood as vacant, unused or blighted properties in the city, each in need of major renovations on the inside & building exterior. As the needs of the Fire & Water cleanup business expands, the need to have more space became an issue which is what prompted the property purchase. The latest acquisition [Main Street] will allow the business to have additional space to clean and securely store customer’s contents off site of the main headquarters.
Changes to the “Green Building” property may also have been noticed by Binghamton south siders as that property also was just recently cleared of 2 structures, one a long standing apartment building, along with tress and debris which opens up the Southside property. Plans are still underway for the future of the property.
“With making a new investment in our business, we are making an investment in the growth of the community”, says owner Lou Sepe, who has owned the business since 1993. “With expanding our business we can put more people to work.” Sepe also said the business is looking to fill positions in their production and sales divisions.
The Franchise provides Emergency Fire & Water- Cleanup & Restoration services for Commercial, Residential, & Insurance clients. Additionally SERVPRO® of Broome, Tompkins & Tioga Counties provides mold, biohazard, document restoration, as well as specialty cleanup needs. “Our job is to be there for our customer, especially following a fire or water loss when emergency response is vital to protecting their assets from further damage.”
