Atlanta, Ga.-based Arrow Exterminators announced the merger and acquisition of Crenshaw Termite and Pest Control.

Crenshaw Termite and Pest Control is a family company focused on providing residential pest and termite control services in the greater Tampa Bay, Fla., area.

From its four established offices in Tampa, New Port Richey, Dade City and Brooksville, Fla., the company provides services to customers in Citrus, Hillsborough, Manatee, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk and Sumter counties in Florida.

“We are extremely excited to welcome the team members and customers of Crenshaw to the Arrow family,” said Emily Thomas Kendrick, CEO of Arrow Exterminators. “These new offices give us 42 service centers throughout the great state of Florida and a total of 162 offices in the country.”

“The company culture at Arrow is virtually identical to ours, which really sealed the deal for us. With six Crenshaw family members as owners in the company, finding another family company was very important to us and we found that in Arrow,” said David Crenshaw, president of Crenshaw Termite and Pest Control. “It was really refreshing to see just how well a big company like Arrow takes care of their team members and their customers. The ongoing training and recognition they give their employees is unmatched.”
