The Rentokil Initial Power Centre building

Introducing The Power Centre


Our success as an innovative global pest control company is down to the continued dedication demonstrated by our team of scientists, technologists and technicians.

In September we opened The Power Centre, our new home for science, innovation and training – a £2m investment which expands our facilities significantly.


Our new facilities now feature:

  • 3 times the amount of laboratory floor space than the current centre
  • 5 pest product test rooms, thereby enabling us to run twice as many trials simultaneously on new innovative pest control solutions
  • 3 training rooms that can accommodate up to 65 people at the same time
  • 7 simulated on-site locations for training colleagues in commercial areas, e.g. supermarket, hotels, restaurant kitchens, etc.

Following the suggestion by several colleagues within the business, we named this facility The Power Centre in honour of our Chief Marketing Officer, Stewart Power, who sadly passed away recently. It was officially opened by his wife and children.

I joined the Marketing and Innovation team at Rentokil in 2015, and my mind has quickly become accustomed to the weird and wonderful world of pests. Outside of work my main hobby is music, being a huge fan of bands such as Queen and Led Zeppelin as well as being an avid drummer.


  1. Hello Kina,
    Could we talk about the details of the traps used for bedbugs? I am researching for a client about the best product to use and company to handle bed bug removal and prevention.
    I am curious about the bait used in the traps and the ability to know bed bugs are in the traps. I understand Ecolab has a product too.
    Can you help me?
