Orkin’s mission is to be the World’s Best Pest Control Company
In 1901, Otto Orkin began the early stages of the business by selling rat poison, door-to-door to Pennsylvania farmers. In 1912, his first office in Richmond, Virginia was opened. By 1926, he expanded into other cities, moved his headquarters to Atlanta, Georgia. In 1964, Rollins, Inc. purchased Orkin Exterminating Company, Inc. from the Orkin family and helped turn the business into one of the largest pest management. As the business grew, he eventually branched out into cockroaches, bedbugs, and other pests.
Beginning as a cartoon, Otto the Orkin Man™ was introduced to the market for television viewing during the 1950’s as part of the company’s first series of commercials. Over the years, the icon of one of the pest control industry major leaders evolved into The Orkin Man™.
