BugBarrier Tree Band Gets New Owner


Envirometrics Systems Inc., manufacturer of the BugBarrier Tree Band, is now Envirometrics Systems USA Inc. The new company is headquartered in Victor, New York. The previous company, owned by Denis Crane, was located in London, Ontario.
Envirometrics Systems USA Inc. is owned by Brian, Kathleen and Duane Pancoast. Brian and Duane Pancoast also own The Pancoast Concern, Ltd., a 27-year-old marketing and communications firm that focuses on tree, landscape and lawn care accounts.
The BugBarrier Tree Band is a pesticide-free, adhesive tree banding system for trapping insects on tree trunks. Its dense, flexible, fiber barrier is first wrapped around the trunk to fill bark crevices. The adhesive film barrier is then installed over the fiber, with the adhesive facing the tree. This unique design eliminates unsightly debris and keeps insect carcasses out of sight. Best of all, it can be installed in less than five minutes.
In 2003, the fledgling Environmentrics Systems Inc. retained The Pancoast Concern as its communications firm. A year later, The Pancoast Concern added sales and marketing to its communications management responsibilities, with Brian Pancoast serving as commercial sales manager.
