VERO BEACH, Fla. — With a presence in every major company around the globe, Syngenta works across continents to introduce pest management professionals (PMPs) to unique, educational experiences that can help grow their businesses. To demonstrate this commitment, Syngenta recently hosted a group of 19 Brazilian PMPs in Orlando, Florida as an opportunity to learn more about pest control in the United States. It was the third year in a row that Brazilian PMPs were awarded the trip after winning a contest established by Syngenta representatives in Latin American.

Over the course of three days, the group visited the Syngenta Vero Beach Research Center, as well as the Univar and Truly Nolen International offices. They were also able to visit the Pro-Line Professional Service office and were given a special tour by Ray Myers, president of RJM Contracting. Meyers and his technicians reviewed contracts and service tickets, discussed business equipment and even took the guests to a customer’s home to perform a full interior and exterior service.

With the help of Syngenta, the Brazilian PMPs were able to gain valuable knowledge and a global perspective of how the pest control industry operates in other parts of the world.

“It was excellent to get to know the reality of pest control operators (PCOs), distributors and products used in a completely different market scenario,” said Ruben Barat, a PMP from Brazil who participated in the trip. “We enjoyed exchanging professional experiences, which helped strengthen our partnership with Syngenta.”
