STOCKHOLM, Sweden — Anticimex announces its continued expansion in U.S. with the acquisition of Turner Pest Control.

Headquartered in Jacksonville, Fla,  with offices throughout the state, Turner is a leading and fast-growing pest management firm in northeast Florida, reporting 2017 year-end revenues of $19.8 million (a $3 million increase over 2016 when Turner ranked 48th on the PCT Top 100 List.)

With the acquisition of Turner, Anticimex will further strengthen its market presence on the East coast of
the United States with a footprint that now covers New England, Mid-Atlantic and Florida.
The acquisition of Turner follows on previous platform acquisitions of American Pest, Modern Pest and
Viking Pest Control and forms part of a strategy to expand in the US market via organic and inorganic
growth.

Commenting on the announcement, Jarl Dahlfors, Anticimex Group President & CEO, said: “The acquisition of Turner Pest Control represents another important step in our strategy to expand in U.S. Turner has a long and proud history as a leading provider of high-quality pest control services and has an impressive track record of growth. Together with the very strong local management team we will continue to grow Turner Pest Control and our business in Florida and beyond.”

Ashton Hudson, chairman and majority owner of Turner, added, “Anticimex’ core values - trust, innovation and passion - are perfectly aligned with ours and I’m confident that as part of the Anticimex family of companies Turner has the opportunity to accelerate its growth and achieve even greater success. We anticipate tremendous opportunities for both our business and our employees.”
