“I am very proud of our new facility and the team members who have worked so hard over the years to make this happen,” said Don Hammond, owner of ITPC.
Hammond is a 24-year industry veteran who began his career with Middleton Pest control. “They really taught me the business. I started as a helper to a lawn spray technician and moved up the ladder as far as regional manager in Phoenix with Sears Termite and Pest Control.”
