Flick Anticimex continues its acquisition initiative in NSW. The acquisition of Manly strengthens the local operations in Sydney, NSW, especially across the strata management, residential and commercial service sectors, based in Brookvale.

Manly is currently led by Ritchie Journeaux, who has been running the business for over 14 years. During this time Ritchie has grown the business to be a brand name with a strong reputation in the Northern beaches and North shore of Sydney both amongst the residential and commercial customer base.

Ritchie Journeaux, owner of Manly Warringah Pest Control commented:
We are excited for the opportunity to join Flick Anticimex as it represents great opportunities for us and our team. We would like to thank our past and present team, as we wouldn’t have built our business to where it is today without them. We look forward to offering our customers the same level of service and passion from our team, along with more efficient and sustainable digital pest control solutions. I am very proud of the success that our family-owned business has achieved and look forward to the exciting opportunities ahead.

Shaun Azhar, Regional General Manager – Central Region, Flick Anticimex commented:
“I am very happy and enthusiastic about this merger as Manly Warringah Pest Control is a renowned and well-run business based in Brookvale, Sydney. We are all looking forward to working together with the team, as their culture of excellence toward employees and clients aligns 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 experience.”
