Orkin Acquires NBC Environment – Pest Management Professional Pest Management Professional
Orkin, a pest control subsidiary brand of Rollins Inc., acquired NBC Environment, headquartered in Banham, Norkfolk, UK, in early April 2022.
NBC Environment was founded in 1993 by Chief Executive John Dickson with a £500 grant from the Prince’s Trust. Initially, the company focused on bird control using falcons, but has since grown to become a national full-service pest control company employing over 100 people. Bird and wildlife management consultancy, such as the recently completed feasibility study on the eradication of predatory rats in the Channel Islands, still remains a specialist core business.
“We have a great team at NBC Environment who are all passionate about what they do,” Dickenson said. “Customers recognize this and as a result we have performed very well in recent years, growing both revenue and profit to significant levels. Together we have accomplished so much. »
Matt Turek, Division President of Orkin International, added, “Orkin and NBC share a culture of exceptional customer service and we recognize that their bird and wildlife management business is unique. We are delighted that John and his team will remain with the company, and we look forward to learning and sharing best practices. »
Paul Giannamore and Franco Villanueva-Meyer of The Potomac Co. represented and acted as exclusive financial advisors to NBC Environment in this transaction.
NBC Environment is the latest in a growing number of Orkin businesses in the UK. It started with the acquisition of Safeguard Pest Control in 2016. Since then AMES Group, Kestrel Pest Control, Enviropest, Baroque Pest Services, Guardian Group, Albany Environmental, Van Vynck Environmental and more recently IPM have all been added to the Safeguard/Orkin family of companies.
