First year success for Hereford business

A family run business in Hereford has claimed a top industry award in its first year of business at a prestigious national trade association event.

PGM & Son Pest Control was crowned winner of the Sole Trader of the Year accolade at the British Pest Management Awards, organised by UK trade body, the British Pest Control Association (BPCA).

Held at ExCel London, the award ceremony formed part of the BPCA’s esteemed biennial exhibition and conference PestEx, the UK’s pest management show.

PGM wins awards

PGM & Son Pest Control was founded just over 12 months ago by Phil Martin, and since then it has gone from strength to strength.

Providing pest control solutions to individuals and businesses across Herefordshire, the company offers a variety of techniques including pesticide-free and organic solutions, preventative and proofing works as well as more traditional methods.

Phil said: “As we are a local, family run business, we genuinely care about our community and the county.

“Residents of Herefordshire who deal with PGM & Son recognise this in their support of our business by coming back to us in the future and referring us to others.

“We don’t just offer pest control treatments, we offer preventative advice and solutions, and importantly, we give customers our time - a rare commodity in this day and age.”

Alongside the company, Phil writes weekly blogs about pest control problems to help educate people about the industry and the poor practices within it, as well as supporting local businesses and charities.
