Anticimex Group accelerates its expansion in the US announcing the acquisition of American Pest

September 23, 2016

American Pest provides pest management services to both commercial and residential customers in Maryland, District of Columbia and Virginia. This follows on Anticimex’s acquisition of Bug Doctor Inc. earlier this year.

American Pest, founded in 1925, has built a reputation as one of the premier pest management companies in the country.  In addition to providing high-quality pest management services to both commercial and residential customers, American Pest has built a solid portfolio of specialized government contracts.

Matt Nixon, CEO of American Pest, commented: “When I decided to sell my business, I had a long list of criteria when evaluating the potential buyers.  I have invested extensively in my people and in technology to support my customers and people better, and I wanted a buyer that would continue to invest in line with my vision.  Anticimex and I share the same vision for the future, and I feel confident that American Pest will continue to thrive as part of Anticimex. I look forward to be part of the Anticimex team going forward.”

Jarl Dahlfors, CEO and President of Anticimex Group, commented: “American Pest is a truly exceptional company that is well invested in people, quality, and growth.  Their culture of continuous improvement and passion for our industry provides an excellent cultural fit with Anticimex’s values of trust, innovation, and passion. This transaction represents another step towards our vision to become the global leader in preventive pest control.  We welcome Matt and his team onboard and look forward to working together with them as we continue to grow our business.”
