Rentokil North America announced today that following the acquisition of The Steritech Group, Inc. in October 2015, it is rebranding its North American pest control operations as Rentokil Steritech. The merger positions Rentokil Steritech as the third largest pest control firm in the U.S. The company is the North American arm of Rentokil Initial, plc, the world’s largest commercial pest control company operating in more than 60 countries around the globe. The expanded organization will now have increased national coverage, faster response times, and an even broader range of services available to customers.
The joining of Rentokil and Steritech creates an unparalleled wealth of technical expertise and resources to provide superior commercial and residential pest services to customers in the United States and Canada. In the United States, Rentokil Steritech customers will be serviced by Rentokil’s highly regarded regional brands: J.C. Ehrlich, Presto-X and Western Exterminator, while Canadian pest control services will operate under the name Rentokil Steritech. In order to ensure consistency, all Rentokil Steritech entities will follow the same service protocols in order to provide uniform service to all North American customers.
Both businesses are recognized as pioneers in the pest management industry. As the two companies bring together operations, customers will now enjoy access to a wider range of innovative treatment methods, products, equipment, and services. These include Rentokil’s market-leading PestNetOnline online pest management system, an expanded offering of bird management services, mosquito and tick protection, fumigation, odor management, and bioremediation services and products.
The Steritech Brand Standards business, a leading provider of food safety and operational assessments designed to help businesses mitigate risk and drive top line sales, will continue to operate under the Steritech name.
“We’re excited to bring together these great organizations,” said John Myers, CEO of Rentokil North America. “It allows us to provide our customers with enhanced world-class service to protect their employees, customers, and businesses from pest dangers. With our network of more than 4,000 pest experts and technicians and a deeper well of technical resources than ever before, Rentokil Steritech is able to deliver comprehensive pest management solutions to any size business in North America.”
