“We are happy to welcome the customers and team members of C&H Pest Control,” said Emily Thomas Kendrick, President and Chief Executive Officer of Arrow Exterminators. “Their passion for customer service and commitment to the community makes them a perfect fit for Arrow.”
“When we started considering selling our business, we talked with a number of companies, including Arrow ”, said owner Darryle Whitfield. After meeting and talking with them, we knew that our employees and customers would be well cared for and were comfortable in entrusting Arrow with this responsibility.” Whitfield added, “We are proud to have these employees join a fellow family-owned and operated company and become a part of the Arrow family. Given Arrow’s proven track record, we know that our employees will be provided with many growth opportunities.”
“C&H Pest Control is a well-established and very well respected name in Picayune given their presence in the area for forty years. We feel fortunate to have this strong team of professionals joining the Arrow family,” stated Tim Pollard, Arrow’s Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. “Expanding our geographic footprint by merging with high quality family companies continues to be important to us as we grow to $200 million and beyond. We continuously look for companies who share our goals, principles and culture and we found that fit with C&H.”
C&H will join with the other three Arrow Exterminators offices in the state of Mississippi and will operate as Stark Exterminators.
