CDS Services Inc., Murrieta, Calif., was ranked No. 2 on a list of the Top 100 Federal Government Pest Control Prime Contractors for fiscal year 2021.
The ranking of the company, which is a certified service-disabled veteran-owned small business (SDVOSB), was based on the value of contracts awarded in 2021. During this time, CDS Services was awarded more than $2.8M in federal contracts throughout the United States.
David Poplin, CDS Services CEO and a Marine veteran, said he is grateful for this achievement and honored to provide pest control services to the Department of Veterans Affairs and fellow veterans, one of the company’s biggest federal customers.
Poplin said his company’s government business model seeks federal government pest control opportunities using its SDVOSB set-aside certification, which is offered through the U.S. Small Business Administration. He is the president, owner and qualifying military veteran for this certification, which is designed to help the federal government meet its goal of awarding at least three percent of all federal contracting dollars to SDVOSB.
“We have a team that focuses on seeking out and managing these government opportunities,” he said. “Our contracts are throughout the United States, so we work with many different partners to perform pest control services. It’s a win-win because it brings long-term stability to both our partners and CDS Services.”
CDS Services Inc., dba Legion Pest Management, was launched in 2013. The company is a member of the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), Pest Control Operators of California (PCOC), and PestVets, the NPMA’s military veteran-focused group.
