RIVER EDGE, N.J. — Excel Termite & Pest Control, headquartered in River Edge, N.J., has acquired Twin Boro Termite & Pest Control Inc., located in Westwood, N.J. The deal was announced by The Aust Group, which represented Twin Boro as the exclusive financial advisor on this transaction. The transaction closed on Jan. 15, and the terms of this transaction were not disclosed.
In 1976, Gerald “Jerry” Lubrano formed Twin Boro Termite & Pest Control, a primarily residential pest and termite control company servicing over 1,500 homes each year in northern New Jersey, specifically Bergen County. Twin Boro was well known for its bright yellow service trucks, which became so popular among customers that Twin Boro adopted the slogan: “You’ve Seen Our Yellow Trucks.”
Jerry Lubrano passed away in February of 2019 after running Twin Boro since he was 23. In his absence, Service Manager Ed Heller operated Twin Boro along with key employees Teddy Calderon and Mary Lynch. Ed Heller and the rest of the staff plan to remain with Excel Termite and Pest Control.
With regards to the transaction, Stuart Aust commented, “For a company with such an incredible history, it was a real honor to serve as an advisor on behalf of Twin Boro. Growing up in Washington Township, New Jersey, my parents were clients of Twin Boro as they were the premier pest control company in our area. I remember seeing the yellow trucks everywhere – they were hard to miss! We are glad to see the Twin Boro legacy live on with the acquisition by such a reputable company in Excel Termite & Pest Control.”
