Flick Anticimex continues its acquisition initiative in Australia for the year. The acquisition of Pestrid strengthens the local operations in Sydney, especially within the Strata Management, general pest and residential service sectors.

Pestrid was established by Jim Eastwood in 1984, whose legacy is continued by his son Gary, who joined Pestrid in 1987. Gary and his wife Michelle have grown Pestrid to become a dominant presence within the Sydney residential market, predominantly as Strata Management Specialists, and will support a geographical expansion of the Flick services across the greater Sydney region.

Michelle Eastwood, Director of Pestrid Pest Control Pty Ltd commented:

“We are extremely proud of the success that Pestrid has achieved over the past 37 years, and this is testament to our amazing team, and our passion to deliver exceptional customer service & professional pest control solutions to our clients. We are excited to join Flick Anticimex, and look forward to the opportunities this merger provides, that will allow us to expand our range of quality service offerings to our Strata and residential clients across Sydney, whilst also providing our employees with new possibilities being part of the growing global organization, Anticimex Group.”

Shaun Azhar, Regional General Manager – Central Region, Flick Anticimex commented:

“I am very happy and enthusiastic about this merger as Pestrid is a renowned and well-run business in the Sydney residential and strata market. We are all looking forward to working together with the Pestrid team, as their culture of excellence toward employees and clients align naturally with the way we do things at Flick. Combining our decades of experience with the latest technological innovations will result in an even better customer service experience.”
