MESA, Ariz. — Bulwark Exterminating announced the purchase of Wolf Pest Control, a company with locations in Knoxville, Tenn., and Chattanooga, Tenn. The acquisition expands Bulwark’s footprint into 14 metro areas.

Bulwark welcomes nearly 2,800 existing Tennessee customers into the Bulwark family. Five previous service technicians from Wolf will also make the transition and become Bulwark territory managers. Territory managers remain within designated service boundaries, affording those customers the luxury of having the same technician month after month.

“We assessed Wolf Pest Control as having a high level of professionalism and customer care that reflects our own”, said Bulwark owner Adam Seever. “We benefit from keeping previous technicians because those customers will see the same familiar face knocking on their door.”

The owner of Wolf Pest Control sought the purchase as an opportunity to focus his efforts and expand his business further. He will continue to grow Wolf's operations in Greenville, S.C. He will remain a stake holder in Knoxville and Chattanooga.
