ATLANTA, Ga. — Rollins announced that it has signed a definitive purchase agreement to acquire the assets and operations of Allpest WA, a leading independent pest control provider in Western Australia. The acquisition is expected to close in February, and this is Rollins’ first business venture in Australia.

Established in 1959 and headquartered in Perth, Australia, Allpest recorded revenues of approximately US $25 million for 2013. Allpest has been recognized as Western Australia’s Pest Manager of the Year for the past two consecutive years. The company has strong brand recognition and is well positioned for organic growth and expansion into Asia-Pacific and other growth areas. In addition to traditional residential, commercial and termite service offerings, Allpest provides consulting services around the globe on pre-border protection of Australia’s biosecurity and provides specialized offerings to Australia’s mining and oil and gas sectors.

Gary W. Rollins, Vice Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Rollins stated “The acquisition of Allpest is a very important milestone for our Company and firmly establishes our global presence as a leader in international pest control management. Allpest has an outstanding management team, and brings to our family of pest control brands many of the shared values within our Company, including a culture of continuous improvement, ongoing investment in training and professional employee development programs. We look forward to working with them and their talented employees, while sharing each other’s best practices.”
