Family-Owned Business

Since 1936, three generations of the Christman family have owned/operated Ohio Exterminating. Andrew Christman, third generation, is the President and has been in the industry since 1997.

Family-owned business facts:

  • The average life span of a family-owned business is 24 years
  • Less than 30% of family-owned businesses survive into the second generation
  • Only 12% will still be viable by the third generation
  • Only 3% of all family-owned business will operate into the fourth generation & beyond

Our goal is to be part of that 3% and continue to make central Ohio families, homes & pets safe, but most importantly, happy!
