Atlanta-based Arrow Exterminators announces the merger and acquisition of Florida Pest Management Inc., founded in 1983 by John Sims and located in Jacksonville, Fla. This transaction further strengthens Arrow‘s presence in the rapidly growing markets in Northeast Florida and allows it to expand and reach more residential and commercial customers west of the St. Johns River.
“We are so pleased to welcome the customers and team members of Florida Pest Management,” says Emily Thomas Kendrick, president and CEO of Arrow Exterminators. “Their commitment to the community and passion for customer service makes them a perfect fit for Arrow.”
Sims notes that Florida Pest Management has always been “a business that values family, values customers.”
“When we started exploring the sale of our business, we were looking to find a company that treats their employees very well and also provides exemplary customer service. We certainly found that in Arrow Exterminators,” he adds. “We are proud to join a fellow family-owned and -operated company and be a part of the Arrow family. In addition, we were looking for a company that would provide our team members with many growth opportunities and an expanded range of services to offer our customers.”
Florida Pest Management will join the other Arrow Exterminators office in the greater Jacksonville area and will ultimately operate as Nader’s Pest Raiders, an Arrow Exterminators company.
