President of New York pest management company meets with European counterparts for knowledge exchange
Assured Environments' president, Andrew Klein, recently visited Europe on a quest to discover some of the ways European pest management companies are adapting to new regulations.
Andrew, who has been at the helm for more than 20 years, was asked to present at a pest management conference in Spain. Afterwards, he met with industry professionals from around Europe to gain insight into how European pest management companies operate under EU chemical regulations, and to determine what new practices can be brought over to the states.
"Assured Environments prides itself on providing thorough and complete pest management solutions to businesses and residents in the NY Tri-State area of the US," he said. "To stay current with industry trends and best practices, the entire Assured team participates in regular education and training exercises. Pest management is constantly changing. With advancing technologies and evolving methods of detection and treatment, we know how important it is to seek new ideas - wherever they might originate - even from international friends and partners."
Andrew visited the All Around Pest Control Company members in Nuremberg, Germany and spent two days with Michael Kahlo, the CEO of APC. He learned how European companies have adapted to new anti-chemical regulations. He also shared Assured Environments' LEED compliant methods which provide sustainable pest management solutions including bed bug elimination and rodent control for commercial facilities among many other services. These can be adapted to meet European requirements.
Much like Assured Environments, APC employs biologists to conduct regular research and provide exclusive knowledge and expertise needed to address all aspects of successful pest management methods.
"It was a really fascinating and productive trip," confirms Andrew. "I was able to glean insights from meeting with global industry experts - and also to return the favour by providing them with insights into our own cutting-edge methods. I look forward to continuing to determine new ways to implement some of their protocol and ensure we best serve all our clients."
Andrew adds that looking internationally for new technology and trends that shape the pest management industry is necessary to staying relevant and cutting-edge in a rapidly evolving industry such as pest management. As one of NYC/New Jersey's most respected pest management providers servicing healthcare, educational, food, retail centres and hospitality/lodging facilities, Assured Environments specialises in eliminating bed bugs, insect, rodent and bird infestations as well as providing comprehensive chute and drain cleaning services.
