WARREN, N.J. – Viking Termite & Pest Control announced it has acquired RJS Pest Management Specialists, a family owned and operated commercial pest control company serving the Greater New York City metropolitan area.
Since it was founded by Roger J. Seeger in 2005, RJS has maintained an unwavering focus on the right people and the right solutions. This focus has been instrumental in RJS’ consistent year-over-year growth and staggering 95 percent customer retention rate. Robert Seeger, a member of the founding family, will continue to drive the day-to-day operations of NYC and the surrounding areas, as well as its aggressive expansion plans.
The acquisition is part of Viking’s strategy to become the leading pest control provider in the Greater New York City metropolitan area, the company reports.
Commenting on the announcement, Ryan Bradbury, president of Viking Pest Control, said, “I am extremely pleased to announce the acquisition of RJS and to welcome Rob and the entire RJS team into the Viking family. We immediately recognized RJS as a best-of-category pest control company with an exceptional track record of growth and customer retention, as well as a deep understanding of the NYC market. RJS has developed a service- and values-driven business that will add momentum to our mission of building an industry-leading operation in the Northeast region of the U.S. I look forward to working together with Rob and the team to realize the full potential of RJS and see it flourish as part of Viking.”
Robert Seeger, president of RJS Pest Management Specialists, added, “My father and I, along with the RJS team, built this company from the ground up on the values of hard work, responsibility, respect, honesty and integrity. Our people—not just our valued team members, but also our loyal customers—are the heart and soul of our business. Given our growth trajectory and consistent profitability, the idea of acquisition was never something we considered until we met with Ryan. As the newest members of the Viking family, we can now achieve our vision of becoming the undisputed leader of the Greater NYC metropolitan area pest control market faster than ever. We look forward to working hand in hand with the Viking team to grow, and we feel very assured that the future will be promising and beneficial for both our loyal customers and employees.”
