Batzner Recognized for Growth and Business Ethics

News Coverage

The New Berlin, Wis.-based company captured a BBB Torch Award for Business Ethics and was recognized as Future 50 Southeastern Wisconsin business.

| November 17, 2011

NEW BERLIN, Wis. — Jerry Batzner proudly points to two new feathers in his New Berlin, Wis.-based company’s cap:

The Better Business Bureau (BBB) of Wisconsin has given a 2011 “Torch Award for Business Ethics and Integrity” to Batzner Pest Management. His company is a “First Place Torch Winner” for organizations with 51-500 employees. Batzner was selected for that honor by an independent panel of 12 business ethics experts because of demonstrated excellence in ethical practices, service excellence, reputation, honest advertising, management practices and employee training in ethical behavior, and peer recognition.  Last year they were a first runner-up in that category.

The Batzner organization was also recognized this year as a “Future 50” company, a list of rising stars in the Southeastern Wisconsin business community.  The list, compiled by COSBE , the the Council of Small Businesse Enterprises of the Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce, recognizes privately-owned companies in the Milwaukee area that have been in business for at least three years and have shown “significant revenue and employment growth.”

“We’ve grown because of our ability to adapt to the pest control needs of our clients, the excellent work of our dedicated employees, referrals from our existing customers, and the changes  in our marketplaces, says Batzner. “We are very honored to receive both of these awards.  Many companies say they are dedicated to business ethics, professionalism and outstanding customer service, but in actuality, fall short of their objectives. We always strive for actions that speak louder than words,” he says. “I’m proud to say that we continually focus on honest, productive management practices and integrated pest management (IPM) technology that combine to produce top-flight customer service.”

Batzner Pest Management is a third generation, family-owned business. Today, the 65-year-old company and its newly formed sister company, Batzner Bed Bug Services, cover southeastern Wisconsin, Madison, and northern Illinois with the latest pest management methods and technology available. It has Wisconsin service centers in New Berlin, Green Bay, Oshkosh, Fond du Lac, Racine and Madison, and employs more than 85 service technicians, office, and customer service personnel.
