Stockholm, Sweden-based Anticimex continues its U.S. expansion with the acquisition of Turner Pest Control, Jacksonville, Fla. Terms were not disclosed, but Turner reports an estimated 2017 revenue of $19.8 million and is considered to be a leading company in northeast Florida.
The acquisition of Turner follows on previous platform acquisitions of American Pest, Modern Pest and Viking Pest Control, and forms part of Anticimex’s strategy to expand in the U.S. market via organic and inorganic growth.
“The acquisition of Turner Pest Control represents another important step in our strategy to expand in U.S.,” says Jarl Dahlfors, Anticimex president and CEO. “Turner has a long and proud history as a leading provider of high-quality pest control services and has an impressive track record of growth. Together with the very strong local management team, we will continue to grow Turner Pest Control and our business in Florida and beyond.”
“Anticimex’ core values — trust, innovation and passion — are perfectly aligned with ours and I’m confident that as part of the Anticimex family of companies, Turner has the opportunity to accelerate its growth and achieve even greater success,” says Ashton Hudson, Chairman and majority owner of Turner. “We anticipate tremendous opportunities for both our business and our employees.”
