“We continue to deliver on our commitment to build an industry-leading commercial pest business, starting with our Copesan acquisition in 2018, and followed by the acquisitions of other Copesan providers such as Assured Environments and Cooper Pest Control,” says Nik Varty, CEO of ServiceMaster.

“We firmly believe that it’s been our core value of taking care of people, both the employees and our customers, that has made Gregory Pest Solutions the success it is today,” says Phil Gregory, founder and CEO of Gregory Pest Solutions. “As a Copesan partner, we had the opportunity to experience how ServiceMaster conducts its business. It is because of the shared commitment to caring that we chose to partner with ServiceMaster.”

ServiceMaster will retain the management team and brand of Gregory Pest Solutions as it looks to strengthen its focus on integrated commercial pest management.

Ben Walker will continue on as president of Gregory Pest Solutions. In addition to this responsibility, he will take on the role of Southeast area leader of commercial pest operations, reporting to Greg Rutherford, president of Terminix Commercial.

This follows the recent announcement that Andrew Klein, former CEO of Assured Environments, will serve as Northeast area leader of commercial pest, reporting to Rutherford.

The acquisition of Gregory Pest Solutions is one of several completed by ServiceMaster in recent months. The company also purchased South Elgin, Ill.-based McCloud Services; Tamaqua, Pa.-based Seitz Brothers Exterminating; and Conyers, Ga.-based Inspect-All Services.

ServiceMaster entered the European market with the acquisition of Nomor Holding in Sweden and also purchased IoT service provider Pest Pulse in Ireland.
