AgroSpeCom BBQ

BBQ before a large heat treatment! This is the way we in AgroSpeCom prepare our team. And it gets better when in the team we have a professional DJ, an experienced cook and a lot of talent for playing games after the World Cup game is over! This is why we are among the best fumigation teams in the world! PS: we did a successful heat treatment too!...

The AgroSpeCom team is working day and night, and even on weekends to guarantee a precision fumigation job for each client.

Second PPCA Course in Hamburg a Success

Second PPCA Course in Hamburg a Success

Continuing with the Peterson Pest Control Academy series, the IPM for Managers and Sales People course took place in Hamburg during the last week of June. The two-day course focused on specific skills to enable participants to begin IPM operations in their own offices, including creating a business plan, marketing, pricing, and competition. As with the first PPCA course, we were fortunate to have a diverse group of participants, representing the Netherlands, Germany, Poland, and Greece. On the first day, speaker Vasilis Sotiroudas familiarized the participants with the vast range of IPM services provided by Control Union, from conducting a GAP analysis to heat and phosphine fumigations. They also worked through an in-depth fumigation case study, taking notes of high risk areas and insect entry points. The second day of the course switched gears to economics, focusing on the financial logistics of opening a pest control business. Speakers Johan Maris and Peter de Weert explained the trajectory of pest control within Control Union’s global operations, and Baldur Grunt from Detia Degesch gave the participants an introduction to the company’s cutting edge fumigants. The participants then investigated a case study of a Russian client, learning how to maintain excellent service and customer service from sale to project completion. The next course in the PPCA series is Heat and Controlled Atmosphere, which will be held on 11-13 September in...
