“We are so pleased to welcome the customers and team members of Alapestco,” said Emily Thomas Kendrick, President and Chief Executive Officer of Arrow Exterminators. “Their commitment to the community and passion for customer service makes them a perfect fit for Arrow.”

“When we started exploring selling our business we were looking to find a company that treats their employees very well and also provides exemplary customer service.  We certainly found that in Arrow Exterminators. 

We have always said “a business that values family, values customers”, said co-owner Armond Bragg.   Co-owner E.T. Hollander added, “We are proud to join a fellow family-owned and operated company and be a part of the Arrow family.  In addition, we were looking for a company that would provide our team members with many growth opportunities and an expanded range of services to offer our customers.”

“Alapestco is an established and very well respected name in the state of Alabama and we are proud to have this strong team of professionals join the Arrow family,” stated Tim Pollard, Arrow’s Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. “Alabama is an important market as we grow to 200 million and beyond. We continuously look to merge with high-quality companies who share our goals, principles and culture and I believe we found the perfect fit with Alapestco.”

Alapestco will join the other Arrow Exterminators offices in the Birmingham market and will ultimately operate as Stark Exterminators, an Arrow Exterminators company.
