| August 6, 2012

MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Terminix announced it has acquired the pest and termite control service business of Topeka, Kan.-based Schendel Pest Services. Terminix is a subsidiary of The ServiceMaster Company, one of the nation’s largest residential and commercial service networks.

Founded in 1947, Schendel operates 10 office locations across six states, including Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Arizona, and Texas – reaching commercial, industrial, and residential customers and producing almost $13 million in annual revenue. Schendel Pest Services will continue to provide residential and commercial pest control services under its current name to its existing customers.

“Schendel has a rich tradition of providing superior service to its customers for almost 65 years. Their strong focus on customer excellence and loyalty is a perfect fit for our organization, and we are proud to welcome them to the Terminix family,” said Chuck Fallon, Terminix president.

This acquisition assists Terminix with the execution of its strategic goal to continue geographic expansion and grow its commercial and residential presence in the United States.

“The transition will be seamless to customers. They’ll still receive the same level of service and dedication from the company they know and trust. Schendel has built a strong reputation over the years on the foundation of its respected brand name and hard work of its associates. We are committed to providing those associates with the resources they need to offer an even greater level of customer service in the future,” said Fallon.

In order to help maintain consistency and continue the strong momentum the company has developed, the current Schendel president, Brent Boles, will continue to serve in that role and will report directly to Terminix Vice President of Operations Larry Pruitt.

“By aligning our region’s most trusted family-owned and operated pest service company with the nation’s premier provider of termite and pest control solutions, we look for our customers to experience an even higher level of service with our brand,” said Boles. “We have a tradition to uphold at Schendel, and we were very careful to select a company with strong brand recognition and a history of execution excellence that would enhance our service offerings and maintain our long-standing traditions. We’re confident we’ve found that industry partner in Terminix.”
