Northwest Exterminating expands with McCall Service


January 14, 2021



Marietta, Ga.-based Northwest Exterminating Co., a Rollins Inc. company, has purchased McCall Service. LR Tullius served as exclusive financial advisor to McCall; terms were not disclosed.

Based in Jacksonville, Fla., McCall Service has provided residential and commercial pest control services for more than 90 years to customers in North and Central Florida and South Georgia. This will add to the service territory of Northwest Exterminating which includes Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, North Carolina and South Carolina.

McCall Service has been led by the Cooksey family for generations, and Josh Cooksey will continue as general manager.

“With the support that our partnership with Rollins and Northwest offers McCall, I look forward to remaining focused on the overall growth and success of each teammate and looking for opportunities to better serve our customers for years to come,” Cooksey said.

Northwest Exterminating was launched in 1951 by L.A. Phillips and his wife Emma Lene Phillips. When Rollins acquired Northwest in 2017, the Phillips family and their entire management team remained with the company.

The combined McCall/Northwest business will continue to be led by members of the third generations of both the Cooksey and Phillips families.

“McCall has an incredible reputation in our industry and with their customers. We’re excited to welcome the extraordinary team into our Northwest Family,” said Stanford Phillips, Rollins Division VP. “We are grateful McCall chose to trust Northwest as a partner in growth moving forward and for the opportunities ahead for both brands.”
