Atlanta-Based Arrow Exterminators, Parent Company of Hughes Exterminators, Acquires Sun Valley Pest and Termite Control in Phoenix

Merger Strengthens Presence in Sprawling Phoenix, Arizona Market

Atlanta-based Arrow Exterminators, parent company of Hughes Exterminators, is pleased to announce the merger and acquisition of Sun Valley Pest Control and Termite in Phoenix, AZ. This will provide Arrow the opportunity to strengthen its presence in the very large Phoenix market and better serve residential and commercial pest and termite customers throughout Maricopa County.

“We are so pleased to welcome the residential and commercial customers of Sun Valley Pest Control and Termite,” said Emily Thomas Kendrick, President and Chief Executive Officer of Arrow Exterminators.“We are known for providing outstanding, personalized service to our customers and it was important for us to find a company that could match our level of service.  We certainly found that in Arrow Exterminators.  Many of our customers know us not just as a pest company but also as friends, so finding a company we could entrust our customers to was critical in our decision-making process”, said co-owner Keith Dewitt.   Co-owner Nancy Dewitt added, “We are so pleased to have merged with a family-owned and operated company and now have our customers be serviced by members of the Arrow family.  Our customers now can enjoy an expanded range of services.”

“Sun Valley Pest Control and Termite is an established name in the state of Arizona” stated Tim Pollard, Arrow’s Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. “Arizona is an important market as we grow to 200 million and beyond. We continuously look to merge with high-quality companies who share our goals, principles and culture and I believe we found the perfect fit with Sun Valley.”

Sun Valley will join the other Arrow Exterminators office in the Phoenix market and will operate as Arrow Exterminators.
