In 1941, Ford’s Hometown Services was established in Worcester MA. by George Ford Sr.
George Ford Sr. with the help of George Ford Jr. added on the Termite Division. In 1976, George Ford Sr. retired with 5 employees, and George Ford Jr. took over as president.
George Jr. later added lawn care to its services. This allowed each of his 3 sons to work and manage their own divisions. Geoffrey Ford managed the Pest Division, Robert Ford managed the Termite Division, and Christopher managed the Turf Division. In 2008, George Ford Jr. retired with over 38 employees and founded the “Central Mass Pest Association”.
Together, his sons added other services such as Tick & Mosquito Control, Wildlife removal, Wildlife exclusion, organic options, retail pest sales, and even expanded its services to RI.
Geoffrey Ford preceded his father as the president of the Central Mass Pest Association (CMPA) for many years. In 2015, Christopher Ford became the 3rd term President of the Massachusetts Association of Lawn care Professionals (MALCP). Chris attends hearings at the state house to oppose or support issues related to the industry. Robert Ford continues to amaze, as his versatility in operations is endless and invaluable to the company. Unfortunately in 2016, Geoffrey left FHS due to health reasons. His contributions will never be forgotten.
