Clark’s Termite and Pest Control is a leading and fast-growing pest management firm with a double-digit organic growth.

“Partnering with the team at Clark’s positions Anticimex for continued expansion throughout the Carolinas,” said Brian Alexson, regional president of Anticimex North America. “Clark’s commitment to their customers and employees are very much aligned with Anticimex’s core values of trust, passion and innovation, which further solidified the mutual decision for the partnership. Together, we will continue to grow Clark’s and accelerate our growth in the Carolinas.”
