TACOMA, Wash., April 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- To meet the needs and demands of a growing market Sprague Pest Solutions has expanded and moved its Portland, Oregon service center.
The new service center features a 40-seat training center, 4,500 sq. ft. warehouse, 1,280 cubic ft. heat treatment and fumigation chamber, and a secured lot for onsite fumigation of equipment and trailers up to 53 ft. in length.
"The additional space allows us to expand our heating and fumigation service capabilities and provide a valuable service to our clients, especially those involved in food processing, distribution and agriculture," says Brian Kalbfleisch, Sprague district manager for Oregon and Southwest Washington. "We can service small lot shipments, bins and equipment used in food processing, farm equipment as well as furniture that is infested with bed bugs."
Kalbfleisch says the Oregon agriculture market is a vibrant one and prized Oregon turfgrass seed and other agriculture products often need to be fumigated for pests such as mice before they are shipped across the country or around the globe.
The new service center is located at 9106 NE Marx Dr. in Portland allowing for easy access to both the Port of Portland and Port of Vancouver, Washington, where many of these valuable agriculture commodities depart from and arrive.
Sprague, the 32nd largest pest management service provider, has been servicing commercial and residential customers in the Oregon market since the early 1990s.
Sprague Pest Solutions, founded in 1926, delivers innovative pest solutions to commercial and residential pest management customers in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Utah and Colorado. Sprague is a Copesan Services partner.
