ATLANTA, May 6, 2009 – Atlanta-based pest control leader Orkin, Inc. recently expanded its employee base and service areas with the acquisitions of four pest control companies this spring — Invaders Pest Control, Inc. in Lincoln Park, Mich., Horizon Pest Management in Kea’au, Hawaii, No Bugz of Arizona, Inc. in Buckhead, Ariz., and Accurate Pest Control in Pontiac, Mich. “Each of these companies offers valuable employees and increased opportunities for Orkin to provide excellent customer service in local communities,” said Bob Hines, director of acquisitions for Orkin. Invaders Pest Control, a 28-year-old company with a loyal customer base, will merge with Orkin’s existing commercial branch in Detroit. Curtis Shepherd, founder and owner of Invaders Pest Control, will join Orkin to assist with the transition and customer service. Orkin doubled its customer base on the Big Island of Hawaii with the acquisition of Horizon Pest Management, a 13-year-old company founded by David Jones and his wife, Jenipher, in Kea’au, which is near Hilo on the Big Island of Hawaii. Orkin employees will relocate to Horizon’s office space for the newly merged location. Orkin’s acquisitions of No Bugz of Arizona, located just west of Phoenix in Buckhead, and Accurate Pest Control in Pontiac will expand existing service areas. Former Accurate Pest Control owner William Klingler will join Orkin.
