  • We offer flexible purchase structures tailored to your unique situation
  • No opportunity is too big - or too small. We will consider your business on its own merit
  • We provide opportunities for colleagues to grow their careers with Rentokil - so many of our colleagues today have come through mergers and acquisitions

  • Strong, long-lasting relationships with colleagues and customers
  • A commitment to top quality service, delivered consistently
  • Management focused on service quality, route productivity and cost control

Acquisition of Sames Co. Ltd., Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

”...a solid relationship and trust amongst all the parties was a critical component of this transaction, as was Rentokil Initial’s flexibility and mind set of solving rather than creating problems. SAMES is an excellent business with solid track records reaching back to the 1970s, the local expertise now paired with leading Rentokil techniques, standards and management systems will enable solid growth and expansion of operations and revenues.”
