| April 20, 2012

ATLANTA – Orkin, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Rollins Inc., announced today that its Orlando employees have a new, bigger and better office. The Orlando branch, Orlando administrative support center and North Florida region employees moved from their location on Fairvilla Drive to 1900 33rd Street. The new building faces a major Florida intrastate, I-4.

“It’s great for the corporate image,” said Greg Clendenin, Orkin’s southeast division president. "The facility is an important part of the work environment, and this new location ‘enhances the attitude’ as one Orlando Orkin employee put it. We look forward to serving greater Orlando from here and continuing to deliver world-class pest control, termite control and lawn care."

The new facility will give Orkin room for growth. The office portion of the building is 2,000 square feet bigger than the old building, and a 3,000 square-foot warehouse space is large enough to accommodate the lawn care business available in Florida.
