MARIETTA, Ga. - Northwest Exterminating is celebrating 62 years in business in 2013, the firm announced. The family owned and operated company opened its doors in Marietta, Ga., in 1951 and has grown to provide residential and commercial termite control, pest control, mosquito control, wildlife services, lawn care and attic insulation.

Northwest Exterminating was founded on the values of honesty, integrity and excellence, the firm said. These values remain the core of Northwest Exterminating as the company has grown from a family of two to a family of over 350 team members and 18 service centers throughout Georgia and Tennessee, and stretching to service areas in Alabama and South Carolina. 

"My father started this company off of a dream, a dream to help build a community through jobs and quality service," said Steve Phillips, CEO, Northwest Exterminating. "I knew I wanted to continue my father's legacy, but in order to do that, we needed to grow. Today, our success is derived from our brilliant team members, who work hard to provide excellent customer service to our customers that we strive to keep as customers for life."

Northwest said it distinguishes itself with its NorPest Green program, a customized program that utilizes plant-based products to get rid of pests while maintaining the lowest environmental impact possible.
