“This is another step in our growth and commitment to the pest management marketplace,” said John Bolanos, vice president of Univar. “The acquisition of SMCP allows Univar to further expand its business in important geographies. We can take advantage of SMCP’s strength and reputation and match it with our extensive customer-focused resources to create an even stronger source for all pest management companies.”
“This is a growth step and a chance to share best practices,” said Doug Ashbridge, president of Southern Mill Creek Products, who will remain in a key role with Univar. “We have the opportunity to share and build-on the best of both companies. Our cultures are based on great customer service with outstanding resources to support and assist our customers.”
At present time, the existing warehouses and staff will all remain in place to serve all PMP customers. Customers and vendors should plan on conducting “business as usual.” After the closing, customers and vendors can go to www.PestWeb.com/smcp for more specific information.
