| April 23, 2013

TACOMA, Wash. - Sprague Pest Solutions has expanded and moved its Portland, Ore. service center, the firm announced.

The new service center features a 40-seat training center, a 4,500 square foot warehouse, a 1,280 cubic foot heat treatment and fumigation chamber and a secured lot for onsite fumigation of equipment and trailers up to 53 feet in length.

"The additional space allows us to expand our heating and fumigation service capabilities and provide a valuable service to our clients, especially those involved in food processing, distribution and agriculture," says Brian Kalbfleisch, Sprague district manager for Oregon and Southwest Washington. "We can service small lot shipments, bins and equipment used in food processing, farm equipment as well as furniture that is infested with bed bugs."

Kalbfleisch says the Oregon agriculture market is a vibrant one and prized Oregon turfgrass seed and other agriculture products often need to be fumigated for pests such as mice before they are shipped across the country or around the globe.

The new service center is located at 9106 NE Marx Drive in Portland, allowing for easy access to both the Port of Portland and Port of Vancouver, Wash., where many of these valuable agriculture commodoties depart from and arrive, the firm said.
