ATLANTA – Rollins Inc., announced that the company, through its wholly owned subsidiary Orkin, has established a new international franchise in Shanghai, China. This franchise is Orkin’s first in China.

“The commercial growth that China continues to experience both nationally and through the establishment of operations by numerous foreign companies provides us with a tremendous opportunity to introduce our integrated pest management procedures,” said Tom Luczynski, Orkin vice president of international development and franchising. “We are pleased to bring Orkin’s quality pest control services to China.”
 
The franchise will concentrate on offering commercial pest control, especially in hotels, office buildings, food processing, restaurants, hospitals and apartments. Qi Hong, Xi Zhang, Yingying Chenand and Changyun Wen have formed a partnership and will open the franchise together. Orkin Shanghai will begin operations mid-2011.

Last month, Franchise General Managers Qi Hong and Du Chao traveled to Atlanta, Orkin’s U.S. headquarters, for initial training at the company’s award-winning training center. 

“We are pleased to partner with Orkin and offer pest control solutions to customers in Shanghai,” said Qi Hong. “Businesses will benefit from the professional and superior pest control services that Orkin provides to its customers.”
