TAMPA, Florida – Environmental Pest Services has moved its headquarters to Tampa. The company, which was previously based in Sarasota, signed a five-year lease for 7,800 square feet of office space at Bay West Center, a Cushman & Wakefield property, located at 5670 W. Cypress Street.
âTampa puts us in a prime location to attract top talent as our organization continues to grow,â said George Pickhardt, president of Environmental Pest Service. âAs EPS has offices in Georgia and, recently, North Carolina, proximity to a major airport has also become increasingly important to our management team. “
Environmental Pest Service has grown exponentially in recent years. Since 2010, the company has acquired and merged with 80 companies, including 6 acquisitions in 2016. The growth strategy of the organization is based on expansion through mergers and acquisitions, while fostering organic growth by maintaining high levels of customer service and employee retention.
In 2016, Environmental Pest Service was ranked # 19 on Pest Control Technology’s “Top 100” list, an annual list of the nation’s largest pest control companies ranked by revenue. The company saw significant year-over-year revenue growth, with annual revenue increasing 30% from 2014 to 2015.
âWe have experienced strong growth over the past few years and expect this trend to continue,â said David Bradford, Chief Financial Officer of Environmental Pest Service. âOur new space will not only facilitate but also accommodate further growth for the foreseeable future. The collaborative work environment will also help us attract millennials looking for employment opportunities to the Tampa Bay area.
EPS used the services of Relocation Strategies-Tampa to manage the move with notable features in the space to include three innovative conference rooms of varying sizes to facilitate collaboration and all workstations including sit or stand desks.
Environmental Pest Service operates four brands – Arrow Environmental Services in West and Central Florida, Bug Out Service in North Florida, Skyline Pest Solutions in Metro Atlanta, and State Pest Control in Central Florida. North Carolina – and 26 branches.
