Anticimex strengthens the footprint in New York by acquiring JP McHale Pest Management

May 2, 2019

Commenting on today’s announcement, Mikael Vinje, Regional President Anticimex North America, said:

“Partnering with the team at JP McHale, marks another important milestone in our strategy to expand in the U.S. JP McHale has a long and proud history as a leading provider of high-quality pest control services and has an impressive track record of growth. Their strong entrepreneurial culture and relentless focus on customer experience is very much aligned with Anticimex’ DNA and we are very excited to accelerate our growth in the greater New York area further.”

Commenting on the transaction, James P McHale Jr, CEO of JP McHale Pest Management, said:

“After developing brand equity for over thirty years, as a family owned and operated entity, I truly believed it was time to mobilize JP McHale Pest Management Inc. towards a new high water mark.  After entertaining several interested Private Equity firms, I was introduced to Mikael Vinje from Anticimex Group. After a few meetings with the Anticimex team, it became clear, Anticimex brings the necessary resources to compete, scale and deliver in this highly  commoditized marketplace. Armed with an aggressive US market plan, it was a perfect fit.  Their core values, decentralized business model and global footprint unlock a tremendous amount of opportunities for our team members.  Our brand, leadership, indigenous market strategy and relentless pursuit of the ultimate client experience will continue.  I am truly energized about the future with our new Anticimex Group family.”

Paul Giannamore of The Potomac Company acted as exclusive financial advisor to JP McHale Pest Management, Inc.
