Sprague Acquires TMC: Expands Pacific Coast Footprint

Sprague Pest Solutions has acquired TMC Pest Management of Bakersfield, CA, extending the reach of our fourth-generation company into California, enabling us to serve commercial clients across the West Coast – from Washington State to Southern California. TMC will now operate under the Sprague Pest Solutions brand.

Founded in 1992 by Jeff McCaa, TMC focuses 100 percent of its business providing innovative pest management services to industrial and commercial clients. They specialize in protecting food processing, distribution and transportation industries in California’s agriculture-rich San Juaquin Valley from the threats posed by disease transmitting pests.

“The TMC culture and commitment to providing innovative, customer-centric pest management services to high-end commercial clients matches ours perfectly,” says Alfie Treleven, CEO/president of Sprague.

Sprague, the 29th largest (based on revenue) company on PCT’s Top 100 list, has a long history providing food processing and agricultural industries with cutting-edge pest management and food safety programs. That experience will be valuable as Sprague takes over service for some of the world’s largest food processing and distribution facilities serving some of the most recognizable consumer brands.

“As a company, we like to push the thinking of how to design and deliver pest management programs for our clients,” adds Treleven. “We make food safe for millions of people.”

Sprague’s general manager Ross Treleven says the acquisition of TMC strengthens Sprague’s commitment to commercial and industrial pest control in one of the country’s most active commercial pest management regions.

“Central California is exactly the space we want to be in and we are very excited about the opportunities the marketplace offers,” he adds.

Bakersfield Service Center Manager Jeff Freeborn says TMC clients can expect the same innovative and top-rated service under Sprague as well as enjoy access to additional specialty services including commodity fumigation and bird management – a key emphasis point of Food Safety Modernization Act mandates.

“The Sprague brand represents more than 90 years of expertise and TMC clients will certainly benefit from the resources they bring to the table to design and implement highly effective pest management programs in high-end commercial and industrial accounts,” says Freeborn.
