Univar ES acquires WMS

By |  June 30, 2016

UnivarAustin, Texas-based Univar Environmental Sciences, a business unit of Univar USA Inc., has acquired the assets of Wildlife Management Supplies (WMS) from Rollins Wildlife Services Inc. The acquisition of WMS, a wildlife control retailer in the U.S. since 1989, expands the scope of wildlife control products available for distribution by Univar to a broad base of governmental and professional customers across the U.S.

“Wildlife control represents an increasingly important and complementary field within the pest management industry,” says Trace McEuen, vice president, Environmental Sciences, Americas. “Some of the nation’s most successful pest management companies attribute a significant portion of their organic business growth to the rising demand for wildlife control. This acquisition gives us the capability to completely service new and existing wildlife control customers with the hardware and consumables they need to drive even more business in this fast-growing field.”

In addition to traps and exclusion devices, wildlife control companies rely on a broad array of consumable products for each job, such as hardware cloth, caulk and cleaning materials. Univar Environmental Sciences will serve its U.S. customers with wildlife control products supplied from its distribution hub in Cincinnati. The business has hired an industry specialist who will provide vital support to the company’s existing sales and customer service staff.
