MINI-ENGINE REPAIR, INC.
Serving Perrysburg Since 1973
Meet Our Amazing Team!
Mike and Barb Smith
Mike's dad, Merle, founded Mini-Engine Repair, Inc. in 1973. Mike and Barb are committed to continuing Merle's tradition of operating with integrity, skill and a customers-first approach in all things.
Mike is exceptionally gifted and highly skilled at small engine repair. He has always been hands-on in the business and loves finding and fixing problems that other shops have been unable to find. You could say that his workbench is is playground - because he so thoroughly enjoys what he does.
Barb is the ray of sunshine at Mini-Engine Repair. She keeps things running smoothly and is our customer service watchdog. Her heart for people comes through in everything she does. If you stop in, you can expect to leave with a bounce in your step because of Barb's energy, enthusiasm and encouraging way.
Bobbie has sadly passed away as of May 12, 2021. She lived to experience 89 years of challenges, accomplishments, and love. Everyone that knew her remembers her kindness and infectious smile. Many customers at Mini-Engine may recall her as the "cookie lady" because of her weekly delivery of homemade chocolate-chip cookies. They were the tastiest cookies east of the Mississippi!
We were blessed to have Bobbie working in the shop from 1989-2020, 31 years in total! She retired at the outset of the Covid-19 pandemic, but continued to make her batches of cookies for customers to enjoy. She will be forever missed and fondly remembered as we continue to move forward and serve our community.
Jeff and Karl
Our technicians are the lifeblood of Mini-Engine Repair. Jeff has been with us for over 35 years and Karl has been here for over 22 years. They are experts in their field and have extensive experience on mini-engines ranging from handhelds, to mowers, to generators, and more! They strive to put out quality work with their ample knowledge of all things mechanical.
Austin started with us in July of 2020 while continuing the pursuit of his degree in Social Studies education. He plans to be a team member with us until he starts his career as a teacher. As a Perrysburg native, Austin graduated from Perrysburg High School in 2018 and has held a job of some form since he was 12 years old. Fun fact, Austin's father, Tom Berkebile, worked with us back in 1975!
After the retirement of Bobbie we were in need of some extra help at the front counter and Austin has happily stepped up to the plate. He can be seen helping rescreen and handling the technological side of the operations here at Mini-Engine. On many occasions it will also be Austin who greets you as you walk in or talk with over the phone. We're happy to have him here and see his smiling face everyday!
