Flick Anticimex grows its market share in Sydney through the acquisition of Southpest Pest Control

Flick Anticimex continues its acquisition initiative in 2022 through the acquisition of Southpest. This acquisition strengthens the local operations in Sydney, NSW, especially across the Strata Management, residential and commercial service sectors.

Located in the Sutherland Shire and servicing the Sydney metropolitan area, Southpest is led by Michael Bell and Dianne Schweickle, running the business for over 26 years. During this time Michael and Dianne have grown the business to be a brand name with a strong reputation in Sydney particularly amongst the residential and Strata Management customer base.

Michael Bell, Director of Southpest 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. It was important for us to join a company with the same passion and level of customer service. We look forward to offering our customers the latest innovative digital sustainable pest control solutions. I am very proud of the success that our business has achieved and look forward to the exciting opportunities ahead.”

Shaun Azhar, Regional General Manager – Sydney Region, Flick Anticimex commented:
“I am very happy and enthusiastic about this merger as Southpest is a renowned and well-run business based in Sydney. The relationships with Strata Management and residential customers formed by Michael Bell and Dianne Schweickle over many years have contributed to the success of Southpest. We look forward to working together with the Southpest team to continue a tradition of outstanding customer service and combining decades of experience with the latest technological innovations to deliver an even better customer experience.”
