About Tanaco: 
Tanaco is a privately owned company based in Esbjerg, Denmark, where it was founded in 1982. Tanaco is a supplier of a wide range of products for pest control with a focus on environmentally safe products and methods.
Tanaco was originally established as a sister company to a larger pest control company, Skadedyrcentralen, which was itself founded in 1910 by Axel L. Lange. His son, Carl l. Lange, took over in 1938 around the time that the first rat law was passed by the Danish government. Carl Lange took full advantage of this by signing rodent control contracts with the municipalities.  In the 1960’s the business passed to Arne l. Lange and Henrik Lange joined the company in the 1980’s, first working for many years as a pest controller, thereafter as salesman and finally as technical manager before taking on the management of the whole company. 
Tanaco today is a leading supplier of brands and products, primarily in the Danish market where it has a leading position in a number of product categories.
