Rentokil Steritech has acquired Vermont Pest Control. The acquisition was reported by The Potomac Company, which represented Vermont Pest Control in the transaction.

Founded in 1991 by Art and Chere Tournet, Vermont Pest Control has grown to be one of the largest pest control operations in the state of Vermont. Vermont Pest Control operates in the territory between Albany, N.Y. and Burlington, Vt., and is an important strategic acquisition for Rentokil, The Potomac Company announced. All of Vermont Pest Control team members will be joining Rentokil, while the sellers will remain with Rentokil until throughout the integration period.

Art and Chere Tournet commented on the acquisition: “We’ve known John Myers for a long time and we’re happy to partner with him and his team here in Vermont. They’ve been great to work with and we’re confident that we made the right decision for our team and our customers.”

Vermont Pest Control is both Rentokil’s and Potomac’s second acquisition in Vermont in recent years, after Rentokil purchased LR Pest Elimination.
