| June 3, 2011

TWINSBURG, OH — J.T. Eaton & Co. announced that Craig Martelle has joined the company full-time as the Northeast Sales Specialist. He joins Craig Velte and James Rodriguez in providing both sales and technical support for J.T. Eaton customers.

Martelle, who had been contributing marketing and sales consultation for the Twinsburg-based pest control product manufacturer, brings 26 years of industry experience. Previously, Martelle was vice president of global sales for AP&G Co. Since 2009, he has also owned his own pest management business, Craig’s Pest Management, in Tioga County, Pa.

“We are very pleased to bring Craig aboard,” says Dale Baker, vice president and third-generation family member for the Twinsburg-based pest management product manufacturer. “His industry background is the perfect match for our company. When he gives a customer advice on a product, they can trust that he knows the product inside and out because he’s used it himself at accounts.”

“I’m glad to be part of the J.T. Eaton team,” says Martelle, whose territory covers Virginia to Maine. “The family atmosphere and focus on finding and supporting the best integrated pest management practices possible is right in line with how I operate my business.”

Martelle resides in Knoxville, PA, with his wife, Tammy. He can be reached at craigm@jteaton.com or 717-917-6167.
