I would like to start by letting you know a little bit of the history of our company.
In 1949, H.C. Blankenship established Superior Termite & Pest Control, Inc. in Blytheville, Arkansas. After serving seven years in the U.S. Army, I met and married Mr. Blankenship’s daughter. In early 1965 after serving nine years at S.H.A.F.E. headquarters in Paris France I was approached to come on board and manage the company for my father-in-law due to ailing health. So after being honorably discharged, I went to work for the company and in August of 1965, I purchased the company from Mr. Blankenship.
In 1992 after attending the University of Arkansas my son Chris S. Lutes came to work for the company. In 2000, Chris and his family moved to Jonesboro, Arkansas in order to take over operations of that office. In 2007 we built a new office at 6225 Highway 18 East in Jonesboro. This office has become our main administrative office and Chris has taken on the General Manager duties as Vice President and co-owner. I have taken on a semi-retired roll as C.E.O. and president of our corporation. In this position, I can still have any proposal or ideas presented to me for consideration.
With locations in Blytheville, Jonesboro, and Mountain Home Arkansas, and licenses in Missouri and Arkansas we are not only one of the largest independently owned extermination companies in Northeast Arkansas but we are also one of the oldest established companies in the area. With this kind of track record I am confident our company will continue to serve the residential and commercial community with integrity and professionalism for years to come.
