BRIDGEWATER, N.J. — Edward Bradbury, president of Viking Termite and Pest Control, announced the acquisition of All Seasons Pest Management Services, Cape May Court House, N.J. This acquisition gives Viking complete coverage of the state now, having 10 branches offering complete service to both the residential and commercial customers.  Viking currently services New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware and Maryland.

“The acquisition of All Seasons is a strategic addition to Viking’s strong footprint in New Jersey,” said Ryan Bradbury, vice president of Viking, who negotiated the purchase.  “All Seasons has a strong, well known presence in southern New Jersey, and we are delighted to have retained all of their knowledgeable and experienced staff as part of our team.  Viking’s acquisition strategy is to identify companies that are leaders in their territory and whose culture is the same as ours in offering first class quality service.  All Seasons and its employees exemplify this theory.”

Gary Schempp, owner of All Seasons, said, “I was delighted to be able to have the company merge with Viking as I knew their reputation on how they treated employees and took care of their customers. It was a big concern for me to have all of my employees treated fairly and provided with benefits that I could not offer. Viking fulfilled this wish and more.”
