Rentokil Initial aquire The Pest Control Company

It is with great pleasure we announce that Rentokil Initial has acquired The Pest Control Company. The sale was completed on 29 March, 2018.

The Pest Control Company is a business that has worked hard to develop expertise, experience and a solid reputation in the South Island residential Pest Control market. Based in Dunedin but with a presence across the whole South Island and lower North Island, this acquisition is an excellent strategic fit which opens up valuable new opportunities for Rentokil Initial.

The Pest Control Company will operate as part of the Rentokil Initial business, though still trading as The Pest Control Company in the market place for the immediate future. Vicky Smith and Glynn Oaten will continue to work closely with us over the next 12 months to ensure a successful transition.

We are delighted with this new venture and I’d like to take this opportunity to welcome our new colleagues to the Rentokil Initial team.

If you have any questions on the acquisition or receive any media enquiries, please direct them to Kennedy Short on 027 362 6559 or myself on 021 884 737.

Kind regards,


Craig Wilson
Managing Director, NZ/Fiji
