Tacoma, Wash. — Food Protection Services announced the addition of an office in Tacoma, Wash. The new office will be an expansion to the current pest management and fumigation locations in the Midwest.

Food Protection Services (FPS) is a joint venture that was the vision of combining the complementary commercial pest management and fumigation capabilities of John Mueller, principal/general manager of FPS and former co-owner/president of Fumigation Service & Supply in Westfield, Ind., and Jay and Jeff Coleman, partners in Research Fumigation Company, Reserve, La. The joint venture was started in 2005 with the first location in Bay, Ark., and has added offices in St. Louis, Mo.; and Bowling Green, Ken.
 
“RFC has been a leader in the in-transit shipboard fumigation industry since 1976 servicing our Gulf of Mexico customers from New Orleans, Louisiana east to Mobile, Alabama and west to Corpus Christi, Texas. We are excited to be able to offer our extensive knowledge and experience of in-transit shipboard fumigations to our customers with export facility locations in the Pacific North West, as well as to those we have not yet had the opportunity to serve. With FPS, we are able to offer over 100 years of combined, multi-faceted pest management experience to serve the PNW region. We have planned to have a presence in the PNW for many years, and are very excited to finally have the opportunity to be there,” said Jay Coleman. “We are excited to have the new PNW office location managed by Michael Carette-Meyers who is licensed in multiple areas, and brings a broad knowledge with over 20 years experience in commercial pest management, bird control, and fumigation.”

The new office provides commercial pest management and fumigation services to the food, grain, and export industries.
