International News

Hainan Island in the People’s Republic of China. This marks the company’s 20th international franchise worldwide.

| May 3, 2012

ATLANTA – Rollins Inc., announced that the company, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Orkin, has established an international franchise in Hainan Island in the People’s Republic of China. This marks the company’s 20th international franchise worldwide.

“We are pleased that we have established our second franchise in China,” said Tom Luczynski, Orkin vice president of U.S. and international development and franchising and technical support. “Hainan Island, China’s second largest island, is recognized for its tropical rainforests and beautiful beaches, making it a popular holiday destination. The tropical wet, warm weather in Hainan Island also creates unique pest control situations and challenges, so our customers there will benefit from Orkin’s long history of service.”

Orkin Hainan Island will offer commercial pest control, focusing mainly on the vast hospitality sector located there. The principal franchise owner, Wu Wentao, is also the owner of pharmaceutical companies. His franchise partners are Wen Changyun, Li Yuanzhou and Zhu Rouyu. Mr. Wu’s wife, Wu Wenping, will be the managing director of the franchise operation.

Franchise employees have already travelled to Atlanta, Orkin’s U.S. headquarters, for initial training at the company’s award-winning training center.

Orkin established its first China franchise in Shanghai in March 2011.
