ATLANTA, Ga. — Atlanta-based Arrow Exterminators announced the merger and acquisition of Knockout Pest & Termite, a full-service company focusing on residential and commercial pest and termite control located in Baldwin and Mobile Counties in Alabama. This transaction strengthens Arrow’s presence in the southern Alabama market. 

“We are thrilled to welcome the team members and customers of Knockout Pest to the Arrow family,” said Emily Thomas Kendrick, president and CEO of Arrow Exterminators. “Knockout’s service promise to their customers and their unbridled enthusiasm makes Knockout a perfect fit.” 

Arrow Exterminators will keep both of Knockouts current offices while operating each under the Arrow brand, and all 36 Knockout employees will remain. This acquisition gives Arrow a total of eight service centers throughout the state of Alabama.

“When we started looking for a home for our business back in 2015, we knew we were looking for a company that would first take care of our team members and treat them as family,” said George “Sonny” Adkison, co-owner of Knockout Pest. “When we first met with Arrow, we knew they were with the right folks, and it was just a matter of time before we were ready to move forward. Arrow provides world-class customer service and is obsessed about how customers and employees are treated. We can’t be any happier that we are merging with Arrow and their team of professionals who truly value both family and customers.”  

Tim Pollard, senior executive vice president and COO of Arrow, said, “Sonny and Mike and their teams have proudly served the Alabama Gulf Coast area and are extremely well-regarded in the state of Alabama. We are proud to have this strong and well experienced team of seasoned professionals join the Arrow family. We continuously look to merge with high quality companies who share our goals, principles and culture and we found the perfect fit with Knockout.”
