PORTSMOUTH, N.H. — Wood Bros. Moving & Storage, an Atlas Van Lines agent located in Portsmouth, N.H., has announced a change in ownership. The agency was purchased by Mark Harrington, a 15-year veteran in international forwarding. Wood Bros. will retain its name under its new owner.

Harrington purchased Wood Bros. from Bill and Ed Walsh on Oct. 17.

"Customers in New Hampshire have come to expect nothing but the best from Wood Bros.," said Glen Dunkerson, president and chief operating officer of Atlas Van Lines. "That tradition will continue with its new owner."
