Arrow Environmental Services Climbs in Industry Rankings

June 14, 2012

SARASOTA, Fla., June 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Reflecting its rapid growth, Arrow Environmental Services moved up to No. 82 in PCT magazine’s latest U.S. pest control industry rankings, fueled by 35% year-over-year revenue growth – the third-highest growth by companies on the list.

Arrow has been expanding throughout west Florida both through organic growth and through acquisitions of other pest control companies. Since 2010, Arrow has acquired eight companies with combined revenues of over $4 million, and is on track to reach $10-million in annual revenues by the end of this year. The coverage area for the company, led by Chairman George Pickhardt and CEO Bill Hurd, stretches from the Tampa Bay area south to Naples.

“We are very pleased to be recognized in the PCT magazine rankings,” said Arrow’s Pickhardt. “The key to our success is that we are keeping our quality high as we grow, tied to the extensive training we give our employees and the care we have taken to acquire excellent pest control providers.”

In the PCT (Pest Control Technology) magazine rankings, which are based on 2011 revenues, Arrow moved up to No. 82 among the nation’s largest pest control companies, up from No. 99 in the previous year’s listing. The latest annual ranking, announced in the magazine’s May issue, lists Arrow with $6.9 million in revenue, making the company one of the largest pest control providers in the Southeast.

The PCT magazine rankings are recognized as the industry’s standard; the magazine has been providing information to the pest control industry since 1970. To see the full ranking, visit the magazine website at http://www.pctonline.com.
