ATLANTA – Atlanta-based Orkin has opened a new branch in Ashburn, Va. This branch will serve primarily Loudon County, Va., including the cities of Sterling, Purcellville, Middleburg and Leesburg. The service area will also include the surrounding cities of Reston, Herndon and Chantilly.

“Prior to the new branch opening, the area north of Route 66 up to the Potomac River and west of the Fairfax County Parkway was serviced by three different branches in Manassas, Vienna and Annandale,” said Ryan Rutherford, branch manager. “The new Ashburn branch will allow us to efficiently meet the needs of the area’s existing and potential customers by opening a branch closer to them.”

The branch will employ 17 people including Rutherford, who will oversee the daily operations of the new operation. Terrence Starcher, of Reston, Va, and James Murphy, of South Riding, Va, will be service managers for the new branch.
