Transfer Technology hires for sales jobs in Tampa

Friday, March 11th, 2011

Upon releasing its financial results, Transfer Technology also divulged that it has hired for sales jobs in Tampa.

TTI Corp. announced today that X-Terminate, Inc., a 100% wholly owned subsidiary hit positive cash flow during its first ever dry-wood termite season in 2010. X-Terminate, Inc. is a fully state licensed and full service pest control operation based in St. Petersburg, FL.

X-Terminate is an Integrated Pest Management company that uses low impact, eco-friendly pest control methods specializing in the use of XT-2000 orange oil to eradicate dry wood termite infestation. The Company has highly trained and state licensed inspectors, and utilizes Tru-Optic Technology to view “inaccessible areas”. X-Terminate uses a new generation Termite Control product, XT-2000, which requires no fumigation and no petro-chemicals, offers a one or two year warranty with multiple options as well as free non-obligatory inspection services.

“Around 10 months ago, to better service the ever increasing demand for integrated pest management, we launched X-Terminate, Inc., a full service, licensed and insured pest control service based in St. Petersburg Florida. After the first season, the business did quite well and should be hitting sustained profitability this termite season starting in May,” said Chris Trina, Chairman and CEO of Transfer Technology and President of X-Terminate, Inc. “We have generated exciting revenue over just a few short months last season and believe we’ve barely touched the surface in this multi-billion dollar industry that’s clearly heading in the green and eco-friendly direction. I am quite proud of what our salespeople, trainers and technicians have accomplished at X-Terminate in such a short period of time and can only imagine the profitability when the branding of our name increases from our ongoing SEO and SEM efforts along with hiring key sales technicians before the 2011 termite season begins,” Trina said.

“The state of Florida suffers the worst termite infestation in the country and therefore suffers the worst home and building damage as well. We opened X-Terminate specifically to become the anti-fumigation termite service in the Tampa Bay area in which we provide a well proven alternative to tenting and the usage of extremely dangerous toxic fumigants. We know the products and services work extremely well which is why we patterned X-Terminate’s business model after our sister company and supplier, X-Termite from California. The people of California have been ahead of the green, eco-friendly movement for years now and this product and service has been used in well over 110,000 homes and has generated sales revenues from its main operators out West of well over 25 million dollars in the last 5 years or so which is why I am extremely excited about our potential in both selling our services and distributing XT-2000 to operators around the state of Florida,” Trina concluded.
