Founder William Leupitz originally established Silverton Pest and Termite Control in 1974 in Silverton, Oregon. By the early 1980’s his son Mike had taken over family buisness and renamed it—Leupitz Contractors Inc. in 1981—was providing pest management, ‘pest and dry rot’ inspections, and construction repair services to a growing real estate and consumer residential market in the mid-Willamette Valley. Eventually it became necessary to move the center of operations from Silverton to Salem—Oregon’s State Capital—to accommodate the growth.
In 1988 Leupitz Pest Control and its sister company, Leupitz Contractors Inc. (which continues today to provide structural repair and remodeling services) split into two separate firms. The following year, Leupitz Pest Control opened a branch office in Clackamas, Oregon, and expanded its service territory to include the greater Portland metropolitan area. Greater expansion into the commercial and institutional markets also began. In 2015 Leupitz Contractors became independent from the Leupitz family of companies, though still headquartered adjacent to Leupitz Pest Control.
Serving Oregon for over 50 Years
Family Owned and Operated Since 1974
A Big Move
In 2002, Leupitz Inspection Services Inc. was formed as a subsidiary of Leupitz Pest Control to focus on the expanding full-home inspection market. In 2019 Leupitz Inspections became independent from Leupitz Pest Control, though still serving the Salem area under that name.
Relocation of corporate offices for the Leupitz family of companies became necessary in March 2005 with the construction of the Keizer Station shopping development near Salem. Consequently, Leupitz Pest Control and its sister companies moved to their present location comprising a two-acre facility between Salem and Portland with direct access to Interstate 5. This relocation has served to make it easier for Leupitz Pest Control to care for an ever-increasing base of loyal clients throughout the greater Portland/Salem metropolitan service area from their state-of-the-art facility.
From the beginning, Leupitz Pest Control has built its business and its reputation on honesty and integrity to its customers. Today, the services of Leupitz Pest Control continue to protect the homes, businesses, and health of thousands of Oregon customers from the debilitating effects caused by insect and rodent pests with the same care as when William Leupitz started the company in 1974.
