GREENSBORO, N.C. - With a continued commitment to helping pest management professionals (PMPs) grow their businesses, Syngenta has launched its 2020 PestPartners 365 Program. Starting Oct. 1, pest management companies of all sizes can begin working toward qualification for yearlong rebates.
Syngenta has continued to update its PestPartners 365 Program each year to meet PMPs’ needs. To qualify, PMPs can simply purchase any combination of products from the entire Syngenta Professional Pest Management (PPM) portfolio to generate at least $200 in base rebates during the qualification period (Oct. 1, 2019 - April 30, 2020). No forms are required to redeem rebates, and, once qualified, PMPs will automatically receive rebates on all Syngenta purchases made during the entire program year (Oct. 1, 2019 - Sept. 30, 2020).
“Receiving rebates is an easy process,” said Marshall Gaster, market manager for PPM at Syngenta. “The PestPartners 365 Program embodies this idea by rewarding PMPs who are already purchasing the pest control products they need.”
Other program benefits include:
• The ability to estimate rebate savings through the online rebate calculator
• Payment deferrals on select products with SummerPay™ terms until June 26, 2020, to help manage cash flow
A one-time Early Order Bonus rebate is also available to PMPs who purchase Syngenta products that generate at least $500 in base rebates between Oct. 1 - Dec. 6, 2019.
“PMP businesses of all sizes should have the opportunity to experience yearlong savings,” explained Pat Willenbrock, head of marketing for PPM at Syngenta. “We’re proud to continue offering a rebate program that provides value and works for all businesses.”

UPFDA Announces Upcoming Events at PestWorld
The United Producers, Formulators & Distributors Association will be holding its membership meeting and a reception at this year's PestWorld.
Coxreels has introduced the all new gear reducing idler sprockets for the 1195 Series electric motorized hose reels. This new add-on benefits the user in reducing the rewind speed, increasing motor torque, and fitting an optional 3-way pin lock.
These high quality, all steel, idler sprockets are chain sprocket assemblies with a corrosion protective coating that change the drive ratio of the motor-to-drum drive system. They are available in three ratios (1:2, 1:3, and 1:4) and each ratio will effectively slow down the rewind speed of the drum by a multiple of the ratio factor and will increase the effective motor torque by the same factor, providing the necessary safety and control during rewind of large, 2” diameter hose.
Coxreels idler sprockets are mounted on zinc plated steel axle and rotate on two self-lubricated bronze bearings.
The electric rewind versions of the 1195 will now come standard with 1:3 gear reduction and the model number has changed accordingly. Non-reduced models will be available if requested for use with electronic speed reducers.
