PHILADELPHIA – The FMC Professional Solutions group attended PestWorld 2020 virtually to launch a new, 20 ounce package of Scion insecticide with UVX technology, meet with customers, and support industry initiatives.
One such initiative is PestVets. Since its inception, FMC has supported PestVets, a National Pest Management Association group committed to engaging veterans in their successful transition to a productive and rewarding career in the pest management industry.
At the 2020 PestWorld ‘In the Mix’ Virtual Reception, FMC pledged to ensure PestVets met its $10,000 goal for its 2020 Week of Service Initiative in support of Operation Stand Down Tennessee. If, at the end of the Week of Service, donations are short of the goal, FMC will donate the difference between the donations collected and the goal. Furthermore, if donations meet or exceed the goal, FMC will donate an additional $5,000.
“FMC is committed to the support of both veterans and the pest management industry,” said National Sales Manager for the FMC Professional Solutions business unit, Tom Wharton. “This is a great cause, and there is no better place to show support for the pest management industry than at PestWorld.”
Dan Carrothers, Commercial Director for the FMC Professional Solutions business unit added, “One of the biggest challenges facing the pest management industry is the need for workers. By connecting veterans with potential employers and pest management companies with hard-working veterans, PestVets helps fulfill that need. We’re committed to helping them succeed.”
This donation is part of the industry commitment component of the FMC True Champions program.
