NAPLES, Fla. – Arrow Environmental Services has purchased The Pest Terminator of Naples, the company announced.

Arrow said the purchase, completed in June, grows Arrow’s presence in the Naples area, and that customers of The Pest Terminator of Naples should see a seamless transition into new service.

“We are very pleased to bring our company into the Arrow family,” said Mac Williams, formerly president of The Pest Terminator of Naples. “Arrow’s commitment to quality service is a good fit with our philosophy, and we expect that our customers will be very pleased with their relationship with Arrow going forward.”

Since 2010, Arrow has acquired 10 companies with combined revenues of over $4 million. The acquisition of The Pest Terminator of Naples is the sixth purchase for Arrow since last summer, and Arrow said this purchase will bring two new employees to Arrow.

“We are committed to keeping the quality of our service high as we continue to grow,” said George Pickhardt, chairman of Arrow. “Our goal is to purchase companies that have a deep commitment to their customers, and Pest Terminator is an example of that.”
