Anticimex Group, which bills itself as the world’s fourth-largest pest control company, has acquired American Pest Management, Fulton, Md. American Pest provides pest management services to both commercial and residential customers in Maryland, District of Columbia and Virginia. This follows on Anticimex’s acquisition of Bug Doctor Inc. earlier this year.
“When I decided to sell my business, I had a long list of criteria when evaluating the potential buyers,” said Matt Nixon, CEO of the 91-year-old American Pest. “I have invested extensively in my people and in technology to support my customers and people better, and I wanted a buyer that would continue to invest in line with my vision. Anticimex and I share the same vision for the future, and I feel confident that American Pest will continue to thrive as part of Anticimex. I look forward to be part of the Anticimex team going forward.”
Jarl Dahlfors, CEO and president of Anticimex Group in Sweden, commented: “We welcome Matt and his team onboard and look forward to working together with them as we continue to grow our business.”
Lance Tullius of Tullius Partners represented and acted as exclusive financial advisor to American Pest Management. Terms were not disclosed.
