From the Seattle Business Magazine Awards website;
Five years after W.B. Sprague founded his pest control company in Pierce County in 1926, A.H. Treleven Sr. bought the company and soon brought in his son, A.H. Treleven Jr. Now operating out of nine service centers in eight Western states, privately owned Sprague Pest Solutions was named a Best Company to Work For in 2011 by Seattle Business magazine and continues to grow and prosper under the third-generation management of brothers Larry and Alfie Treleven. To celebrate its 85th anniversary, Sprague entered a new market—Denver, Colorado—and initiated work on creating a succession plan. — S.W.
