Atlanta, Ga.-based Arrow Exterminators has acquired Tomasello Pest Control, with offices in West Palm Beach, Fla. This merger strengthens Arrow’s presence in West Palm Beach and enables Arrow to service more residential and commercial customers along the coast from Jupiter to Boynton Beach, Fla.
The company was founded in 1928 by Rudy and Blanche Tomasello, and later owned by their daughter Regina Tomasello Doll. Current President Chuck Doll took over as president of Tomasello in 1997. Tomasello has been a full-service company since the early days, offering general pest, lawn and ornamental, termite and fumigation services.
“Tomasello’s history mirrors that of Arrow Exterminators, with both being family companies,” Chuck Doll said in a news release. “When it came time to find a company to acquire our family business, it was an easy decision to select Arrow. The sale of a business is always difficult for company owners. You want the acquiring company to take care of your employees like family. In the era of investment bankers and quick deals, finding a purchaser who has your employee’s best interest in mind is very difficult. Tomasello vetted 32 potential buyers, and no other company gave us the confidence that they would treat our employees as their own.”
