In an industry with more than 20,000 licensed companies that is predicted to eclipse $10 billion in service revenues by the year 2020, RK Environmental Services is keeping pace and been named to Pest Control Technology magazine’s Top 100 List.
The list is an annual compilation of the leading pest management companies in the United States based on revenue and was featured in the magazine’s May issue.
The growth RK Environmental Services has experienced – the company was number 62 – mirrors that of the professional pest management industry overall.
According to Specialty Consultants, a research firm that track industry trends, pest management service revenues nationally grew 5.2 percent last year to $8.597 billion. It is the sixth consecutive year of growth for an industry that protects the food and property for millions of consumers nationwide from unwanted and potentially health-threatening pests.
“We are excited to be recognized for our industry success and truly believe in the mission and services we provide to our clients,” says Hank Hirsch, B.C.E., president of RK Environmental Services. “We will continue to build a work culture that provides opportunities for our staff, where every employee is genuinely happy and excited about where they work and what they do.”
The company, whose innovative service offerings safeguard leading food processing, storage and distribution, pharmaceutical facilities and retail food establishments from harmful pests including rodents, cockroaches, nuisance birds, stored product pests, and flies, works with clients up and down the Eastern seaboard through Mid-America.
