| December 19, 2013

SADDBLE BROOK, N.J. – ChemTec Pest Control is celebrating the 40-year service mark for George Hulme, affectionately known as ‘Super George’.  Hulme, ChemTec’s most requested employee, has served as the company’s termite expert for most of his career. Hulme will be honored by both the Company and Town Officials this week at a special gathering for family and fellow employees.
 
Super George’s customers joined the festivities and sent the company an overwhelming outpour of congratulatory messages, well wishes and heartwarming anecdotes of what he has meant to them throughout his years of service. Among the gifts Hulme will receive is a scrapbook highlighting his career including the 50 plus messages the company has received. 

Here are a few things his customers have said:

Dear George, Congratulations on this huge milestone! You are one of a kind. You put our minds at ease when we had a termite problem with your expertise and your confidence. You went above and beyond for us. You are professional with a personal touch! When you left our house, we said, what a great guy! We know we're in good hands. Please don't retire. What would we do?! Congratulations on a job well done!
-Sincerely, Ron & Michelle Pisano

I have appreciated your open honesty and skills around my home and admire how you have managed to be in front of all those products of your trade for so many years! You have made my experience great with your company and because of you I remain loyal and faithful. Thanks for everything!
-Jane Garnes

I have had ChemTec for MANY years. Was always at work (trusted to leave door unlocked) when George would service my home. Almost 5 yrs. ago I retired and finally met George. I knew then all those years I had nothing to be concerned about. George was so very friendly and trustworthy. It was really nice to finally meet him. Thank you for the years of service.

The Honorable Karen Chamberlain, Mayor of Saddle Brook, NJ will present Hulme with a proclamation from the town recognizing the importance of his achievements.  The Company moved to Saddle Brook in 1973, shortly after Hulme began his pest control career.
 
In honor of Hulme’s service and loyalty, ChemTec has also honored Hulme’s two oldest customers, Mr. Dino Barbieri of Saddle Brook and Mr. Glenn Ent of Fair Lawn with free termite protection for as long as they own their home.  Hulme has been providing service to both customers for his entire 40-years of service.  ‘Super George’ surprised both long term customers by delivering the news and thanking both in person.
 
“George is very dedicated to both his craft and his customers,” said Mary Vongas, ChemTec President.  “When you read the heart-warming messages from George’s customers, you can truly see the importance of honest, quality, caring service…that is the only way you would get this outpouring of genuine and warm customer response,”  Vongas added.  Many of the messages can be seen on the company website at www.chemtecpest.com/contact-us/thank-our-super-george .
