READING, Pa. – Rentokil Steritech announces the acquisition of Fischer Environmental Services, based in Mandeville, La., and servicing the greater New Orleans metro area. This move provides immediate scale for Rentokil Steritech’s service footprint in the region and further solidifies the brand’s reputation for quality termite and pest control expertise. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The acquisition adds all of the Fischer colleagues to the local Rentokil Steritech team.
Founded in 1984 by Bob Kunst, member of the Louisiana state Pest Control Board, Fischer Environmental Services, Inc. has a longstanding presence in the region. This acquisition furthers Rentokil Steritech’s footprint in Louisiana - an area with a warm weather environment and heavy pest pressures. Current Fischer management, including Kunst, will stay on to run the operations.
“We are excited to expand Rentokil Steritech’s reach in the New Orleans region by combining with Fischer Environmental Services, Inc.,” said John Myers, president and CEO, Rentokil Steritech. “Bob Kunst and his team mirror the same company values and work ethic plus a commitment to the customer experience that we take pride in at Rentokil Steritech.”
“We are proud to be joining the well-established Rentokil Steritech brand and we look forward to working together with the new team to best serve existing and new customers throughout southeastern Louisiana and Gulf Coast Mississippi,” said Bob Kunst, president at Fischer Environmental Services, Inc.
