AEPMA Pest Manager of the Year 2022

We are delighted to share the news that Rentokil Australia has won the 2022 Pest Manager of the Year Award which was presented at the Pest Manager of the Year & PWAPM Excellence Awards night by the Australian Environmental Pest Managers Association (AEPMA). AEPMA sets standards for the pest management industry provides information to consumers on urban pest control and liaises with regulatory authorities on matters including public safety and the use of pesticides. 

Rentokil’s partnership with AEPMA enables us to strive for continuous improvement as a company and in the pest industry as well as the ongoing collaboration and development of new initiatives aimed at supporting the goals of both organisations through the creation and adoption of new products, services, industry best practice, and standards. 

BASF sponsored the awards again in 2022 and Dr David Elmouttie, Head of Professional and Specialty Solutions - Australia & New Zealand, says this year has really shown how the industry is evolving and how important the capacity for change is to everyone in pest management.

We would like to take the time to thank our customers and suppliers as this is a collective effort and we are grateful for your ongoing support. We would also like to congratulate all the other winners and finalists.
