Continuing the expansion in the New Zealand market, the Anticimex Group has proudly acquired two pest control businesses: BioSsol Ltd and Big John’s Ltd in the South Islands and Hawkes Bay regions, respectively.
BioSsol is a commercial fumigation company based in Christchurch and Big John’s Pest Control & Household Services is primarily a business-to-consumer pest control and household cleaning provider based in Napier. The acquisition of BioSsol further solidifies our competitive stance in the fumigation market while the acquisition of Big John’s strengthens our existing residential customer base and expand our reach in the residential.
As of the end of July 2018, the Anticimex Group has a total of six acquired businesses in Australia and New Zealand. The Anticimex Group looks forward to future growth opportunities and asserting ourselves as leaders in the pest control industry.
Commenting on the two new acquisitions, Alex Andrievski, Country Manager of Flick Anticimex:
Big John Pest Control, a bolt-on acquisition, strengthens our market position as the number one pest control service provider in the Hawkes Bay region. Acquisition of BioSsol supports our strategy to develop a national capability of delivering highly specialised Biosecurity treatments across all New Zealand regions.
