One of the reasons Lorne Hill began GoPestTech, is explained this way, “As pest management companies grow and especially if they grow too fast, the focus tends to shift away from the specific needs of individual customers and a “cookie-cutter” philosophy develops. For example, sometimes the company’s bigger picture gets in the way of doing what’s best for each and every individual client. This makes it difficult for technicians like myself, whose primary concern is for the clients that we are servicing, as we may be asked to do things that are not in the clients’ best interest, but rather in management’s best interest”. Lorne Hill made the decision to start my own pest management company GoPestTech, with the “Client” and service always the No.1 concern. “ I love solving people’s pest problems and wanted to be free to do what I know to be in their best interest. There’s nothing more satisfying than knowing you’ve taken a panic stricken person, calmed their fears and “saved the day”.
