Delta Pest Control - 2011 SBA Small Business Persons of the Year"We feel truly blessed!" these were the sentiments expressed by John and Bertha Pinney, owners of Delta Pest Control & Lawn Service, as they received the news that they were named this year's small Business Persons of the Year by the Small Business Administration (SBA). When they were told that they had been nominated for the award by Bank of the West they couldn't help but feel somewhat nostalgic. John and Bertha are no strangers to hard work and have never shed away from any challenge. Mr. Pinney comments that the key to their success thus far has been 'attention to detail.' Mrs Pinney began to recall the beginnings of Delta Pest Control commenting that the business was initially operating out of her mother-in-law's garage. At the time she was a student at UTEP and John worked as a disc-jockey to make ends meet.

Bertha commented that at her first pest control service at a mobile home the bugs were crawling all over as if they were the owners. But those bugs didn't stand a chance with the Berthanator on the scene, this Biology Major / Certified Technician / Bug Enthusiast not only know bugs, but she isn't afraid to get her hands dirty. Beginning their business with one vehicle, they now have a fleet of 117 trucks and 65 fabulous employees, some have bee with them since start-up and are valued by Bertha and John who appreciate their service and expertise.

They were willing to make a success of their business and that has meant many sacrifices over the years. "The office is like home sometimes. I can't tell you how many nights we have stayed overnight here," John said. There isn't an aspect of the company that both John and Bertha aren't involved in. "They are the Heart and Soul." They are both fighters and never give up. They attribute much credit for their success to the SBA and help from Bank of the West. They are grateful to them because they were willing to take a gamble on their behalf and help them grow. Hometown banks are special that way as they can see the potential impact in the community's job market and take the lead in local financial investments. Customers seem to naturally build a strong working relationship with Delta Pest Control and Lawn Service, and 80% of the estimates provided become clients.

Bertha explains that they do sell a service, but take care not to be pushy. People want to figure out their needs on their own, analyzing all the angles and don't want to be unduly pressured. Feeling fortunate and blessed, word of mouth has bee their best asset and, of course, the reliable employees and trucks equipped to do the job are also essential. They are proud to be locally owned and operated and are always on the search for new ways to expand and improve. There isn't a job to big or small, to near or too far. They treat each opportunity individually to ensure that the client is happy. They serve commercial, industrial, residential and military (Ft. Bliss) markets. They do the little things that really make a difference and take the extra step to ensure complete satisfaction. An array of "before" and "after" pictures validates their claims of awesome results from their professional landscaping, grounds maintenance, pest control and lawn service.

Delta Pest Control - 2011 SBA Small Business Persons of the YearDelta Pest Control and Lawn Service provides grounds maintenance, landscaping, pest and weed control, sprinkler installation and repair, construction repair, fencing and painting are also included. These are the main services and you can call (915) 751-7500 or fax (915) 751-2630 for more information or estimates. Presently located at 5869 Waycross, they have experienced five expansions and the next goal is to expand nation-wide.

You will mostly see Bertha in the office now-a-days, as she has taken responsibility for the administration aspect of the company. While John like to focus on selling his charm and bringing in more work. Every now and again however he still likes to get his feet wet and help out with field work. There really is nothing that is too small for his attention, he also ensures that the employees always have the equipment needed to do the best job possible. They have always operated as a team and were high school sweethearts. When questioned about their secret for success, they answered in one word: "Teamwork!" Everyone works together and all are able to handle different tasks as a situation demands without ego problems. Bertha says everyday day is different and never routine. Humble and helpful to others, they both work hard to keep the community beautiful and prosperous. One of Bertha's favorite phrases is "not limited to" which to her basically means don't limit yourself.

Dedication and honesty has earned them the respect of customers. Operating under the motto: "Don't do to others what you would not want them to do to you," this interpretation of the Golden Rule is their guiding principle and has worked for them from the onset of their business, Delta Pest Control and Lawn Service. Capably serving West Texas and New Mexico with high standards and quality service, congratulations to John and Bertha Pinney of Delta Pest Control and Lawn Service, recipients of this year's Persons of the Year Award from the Small Business Administration.

  WINNER OF THE SBA
2011 SMALL BUSINESS
PERSONS OF THE YEAR
DISTRICT LEVEL


Delta Unlimited Inc., dba Delta Pest Control & Lawn Service

John C. Pinney, President and Bertha A. Pinney, Vice President

Nominated by: Bank of the West
When you have a license to exterminate, business is usually good. John and Bertha Pinney started Delta Pest Control & Lawn Service in 1987 with just one truck and a desk tucked into a garage.

On Friday, the husband and wife combo will see the fruits of their labor when the U.S. Small Business Administration in El Paso names them the Small Business Persons of the Year for the SBA's El Paso district. "This is an accomplishment," John Pinney said. "This is not an award that is easily obtainable." His wife said it justifies the hard work they have put into the company for 24 years. "It is something that makes us feel good, that we finally got noticed," Bertha Pinney said. "I tell my employees that I've been through it all and I keep going."

The company is now Delta Unlimited Inc., and pest control is just one of the many services it offers. The company provides landscaping, sprinkler repair and installation, back-flow testing and much more. Delta's customers include commercial, industrial, military and residential.

The Pinneys still get their hands dirty sometimes, but for the most part they are now administrators of 65 employees and 117 service trucks, including the first one. "That was my own personal truck," John Pinney said. "Some people tell me to get rid of it, but it still has value to us." The original desk from 1987 is also is kept in the company warehouse.

For so long the Pinneys did it all on their own, but they say the award would not be possible without their crew. "Without our personnel we wouldn't have gotten anywhere," John Pinney said. "It is the people that make us."

While Delta is still expanding, the Pinneys said, they are prepared to one day leave the business to their children, whom they raised in the office. But they will never forget how they started out.

Phillip C. Silva, director for the Small Business Administration El Paso District offices, said that Delta Unlimited deserves the award because of its community impact and how big it has gotten over the years. "Delta Pest Control is an example of how persistence, hard work and dedication can pay off," Silva said. The award "is given to the small business that exemplifies success."
