We Take Pride In The Amco Pest Control History

In 1935, Arthur Williams established the first generation of Williams to provide Professional Pest Control Services. With a PHD in chemistry, Arthur Williams started in the industry as a termite control consultant; he was well respected for his extensive knowledge and expertise acquired through his many years of perfecting his own formula for treating wood construction timbers to protect against termites and other wood destroying insects like Carpenter Bees which can bore holes in wood, thereby weakening lumber and rendering it useless.

The very first property treated by Williams was in the City of Elizabeth, NJ, in 1935. Demand for his early yet effective pest control service grew so much in such a short time that he began performing treatments to structures as an occupation.

All throughout the late 1930’s, into the 40’s and 50’s, the booming economy gave way to a significant growth in population which meant more houses and an even greater demand for Pest Control Services.

As the steady growth of demand for Pest Control Services continued, a bigger staff and more field reps was key to fulfilling the needs of the booming community. This is when AMCO first makes it’s debut as a Premier Pest Control Services company. Through family involvement, company mergers, and acquisitions, Amco was able to successfully create a full-service company that could handle the removal and extermination of any and all unwanted pests. AMCO has remained a family owned and operated business, serving the New York and New Jersey areas for over 50 Years, and always with Maximum Concern For Children & Pets
