EcoArmor Pest Defense was owned and run by Jordan Hopewell, while QuickSumo Pest Control was owned by Josh and John Hopewell. The three brothers decided to join companies amid the COVID-19 pandemic after being reminded of the importance of family.
“With everything going on with COVID, we’ve just realized that family is more important than ever,” Jordan Hopewell said. “And merging the companies to create a bigger company would not only be beneficial to us, but it would help us widen our spectrum of services for all of our customers across the board and help us better serve our customers and our community.”
The companies were close competitors for about three years before deciding to merge, Jordan Hopewell said. Jordan Hopewell will serve as president of the new company; John Hopewell will be the vice president and Josh Hopewell will serve as the secretary and treasurer. The new company has a recurring revenue of $550,000 and will be heavily focused on residential services.
“We’re more about building relationships with customers, so the residential structure fit our model a little bit better individually,” Jordan Hopewell said. When combining the two companies’ models, they fit seamlessly as both had greater emphasis on residential, he added.
Eventually, the company hopes to transition all their branding to EcoArmor Pest Defense but is capitalizing on the remaining marketing they have under QuickSumo Pest Control.
