UPFDA plans to celebrate 50th anniversary at 2018 spring conference


September 26, 2017

UPFDA 2018The United Producers, Formulators & Distributors Association (UPFDA) will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2018. It is planning an anniversary celebration for its Spring Conference, taking place April 17-19, 2018, at the Drake Hotel in Chicago. As the group notes on its website:

They say there is a special interest group for every known passion, but after a few years it’s evident which ones have validity and which ones are passing fancies. Back in 1968, the suppliers to the pest management industry felt un-represented. They knew that the services they provided were valuable and that this was a good business to grow. But their concerns over packaging, shipping, sponsorships, conferences and more were troubling and they felt that the best way to provide service to the industry was to establish an association to voice their common position.

And the rest is history. Never more than about 75 manufacturers and distributors, UPFDA is a staple in the pest management industry. Our members represent most of the suppliers to the specialty applicators. Some years, we sit to the side, watching and taking notes. We’re frequently referred to as a standing army, ready to act when needed.

Who are our members? Most of the distributors throughout the United States, Caribbean, Canada and Europe as well as large and small manufacturers. We have huge companies who have made pest control products for 60 years – and we have small companies who have specialized products and are new to the specialty industry.
