 CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — Erik Gardner of Volunteer Rid A Pest announces the recent acquisition of E/R Exterminating Company of Chattanooga. E/R was founded in 1987 by Darrell Eachus and serves both residential and commercial clients in the greater Chattanooga area.

“We have been looking for the right opportunity to make a strong move into the Chattanooga Market and with E/R Exterminating we have found it. Mr. Eachus is approaching his 70th birthday and is looking forward to retirement, so this purchase presents the perfect opportunity for both of us,” said Gardner.

Volunteer will maintain its Cleveland, Tenn., offices and will continue to be based in Cleveland, Tenn. They have also purchased the buildings that house the E/R operation in Chattanooga.

“We decided to purchase the Orchard Knob office complex as a statement to our employees and our clients, that we are committed to serving Chattanooga. We are here to stay,” added Gardner.

E/R’s employees have been transitioned into the Volunteer Rid A Pest staff. Gardner and his staff took over the day-to-day operations of E/R, on March 1, 2013.
