MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Terminix has acquired the assets of Chino Hills, Calif.-based Antimite Termite and Pest Control and its Arizona affiliate, SOS Exterminating.
 
Founded in 1941, Antimite operates 12 branch locations across California and Arizona, reaching more than 37,000 customers and producing $30 million in annual revenue. Antimite and SOS Exterminating will continue to operate as stand-alone entities and provide termite and pest control services under their current names to their existing customers.
 
“Antimite has a rich tradition of providing superior service to their customers for almost 70 years. Their strong focus on the customer experience is a perfect fit for our organization, and we are proud to add them to the Terminix family,” said Tom Brackett, Terminix president and chief operating officer.
 
The move offers the potential for continued growth in the southwestern United States for the nation’s largest provider of termite and pest control. The acquisition improves the company’s customer delivery models in major metropolitan areas such as Los Angeles, San Diego, Phoenix and Tucson, Ariz. 
 
“The transition will be seamless to customers. They’ll still receive the same level of service and dedication from the staff they know and trust. Antimite and SOS Exterminating have built strong reputations through the years on the hard work of their associates, and we are committed to providing those associates with the resources they need to offer an unmatched level of customer service in the future,” said Brackett.
 
In order to help maintain consistency and continue the momentum the company has built, Antimite Chief Operating Officer Rick Swope will remain in his current position and report directly to Brackett.
 
“By aligning our region’s most trusted family-owned and operated termite service company with the nation’s premier provider of termite and pest control solutions, our customers are entering an unparalleled era of service,” said Lee Blevins, Antimite’s former president and owner. “We have a tradition to uphold at Antimite, and we were very careful to select a company that would enhance our service offerings and maintain our tradition. We’ve found that industry partner in Terminix.”
