LODI, Calif.  – Geotech Supply Company, a supplier of inspection tools and safety supplies to pest management companies nationwide, has recently rejoined as a member of the National Pest Management Association (NPMA). 

As a returning member of the industry organization, Geotech will be an exhibitor at NPMA’s annual PestWorld conference in New Orleans.  At this year’s show, Geotech Supply will showcase new products that they are the exclusive distributor for in the United States, such as the Philips Master Line Long Life Bulbs. 

The Philips Master Line bulb is a new type of highly efficient and durable UV lamp with a 2-year life span.  By using this bulb in tools such as insect traps, pest management companies reduce labor costs to maintain and replace bulbs each year, as well as reduce waste and lessen environmental impact because it is water-based, not mercury-based.  

Geotech is also the exclusive North American distributor for the Alcochem Hygiene Insect Light traps.  Pest control professionals can check out these and more of Geotech’s expanding product line at the company’s PestWorld Booth #750, form October 19-22.

“We are proud to be part of NPMA again because it adds a tremendous credibility to our business,” said Josh Koenig, account manager, Geotech Supply Company.  “Through NPMA’s network we have incredible opportunities to support an industry that supports us, and at the same time be able to show pest control professionals across the country what we have to offer and how we can make a difference to their businesses’ bottom line.”
