On October 12, 2022, Rentokil Initial plc completed its acquisition of Terminix Global Holdings, Inc in a move that is highly significant for the global pest industry.
The acquisition sees two of North America’s leading pest control businesses joining to form one dominant player in the market. With their forces combined, the resulting company is now the leading global pest control company, with 4.9 million customers worldwide.
Brett Ponton, CEO of Terminix, commented, “We are very excited to be joining a company of Rentokil Initial’s pedigree and to see the Terminix business we’ve built over 95 years embark on its next stage of development. The Terminix team appreciates the trust placed in us by Rentokil Initial and is ready to become part of its growth story.”
