Delaware Valley Spray Service is owned by Jim and Paul Bruni. The company was established in 1961 by Nick Bruni, a retired US Navy Chief Petty Officer. At that time services such as lawn and tree spraying were relatively unheard of in the residential market. Nick was a pioneer in this new and upcoming industry.
With some prior experience in the field of agriculture, along with his wife Ida, he took a chance and chose this line of work in order to provide for their six children. Together they started a "one man operation" with Ida as his secretary, bookkeeper, and accountant while she continued to work at a full time job. Built on integrity, hard work and outstanding service, Delaware Valley Spray Service blossomed into the successful business it is today. Nick retired from the business in 1985.
Jim and Paul Bruni had often worked with Nick during school breaks and on weekends in the early years. In 1973 Paul began working full time and is currently President of the company. A decade later Jim, a professional engineer, joined in a full time capacity. The brothers refused many opportunities over the years to expand the company. They recognized their own personal commitment to service and quality as the foundation of the company's success.
