Crane Pest Control, Inc. was established in 1930 in San Francisco, Calif. The Company with annual revenues exceeding $10 million is a leading provider of advanced pest management, serving Northern California and the Reno/Tahoe Basin. Crane Pest Control’s primary service is commercial pest control and its existing business complements the services that Rollins offers through its subsidiary, Orkin. Following the acquisition, Crane Pest Control will operate independently to preserve its successful brand and loyal customers.

“Joining Crane with Rollins is a good cultural fit for both companies,” said Harold Stein, president of Crane Pest Control, Inc. and past president of the National Pest Management Association. “Crane Pest Control is now aligned with one of the premier pest management companies in North America and we look forward to a successful partnership with the Rollins team.”

Glen Rollins, vice president of Rollins, Inc. and president of Orkin, Inc. commented, “I’m a long-time admirer of Hal and Vera Stein and their team at Crane. We aim to provide a comfortable home for their extraordinary coworkers and customers. The purchase of Crane Pest Control represents our second large acquisition in nine months and underscores the outstanding growth prospects available to Rollins.”
