Rentokil is a worldwide pest control business with customers. We now can provide even higher levels of service to commercial and residential customers, so we are certainly excited about what this merger means for our customers. In the Hudson Valley, Rentokil operates its primary pest control brand as Ehrlich Pest Control.”
Paul Giannamore and Ericka Andes of The Potomac Company acted as exclusive financial advisors to the Company along with attorney Michael Stanczyk.
