Terminix expands into Canada with acquisition of Magical Pest Control's assets
Terminix, the world's largest pest and termite control provider, has announced its entry into the Canadian pest control market with the acquisition of substantially all of the assets of Toronto-based Magical Pest Control.
Founded in 1997, Magical Pest Control is one of the largest pest control companies in Ontario, specialising in commercial accounts and the property management sector, while also treating residential customers.
Led by President Mark Joseph, the Toronto company served customers throughout Ontario and eastern Canada. Terminix's Toronto operations will provide commercial and residential pest control services under the Magical Pest Control name. Under Terminix's leadership, Joseph will continue to operate the business and work closely with the Terminix Commercial team.
"Our acquisition of Magical's operations marks an important strategic opportunity to expand our business to the growing Canadian market," explains Larry Pruitt, president of Terminix, a subsidiary of ServiceMaster. "Magical's impressive focus on customer-centric service, innovation, as well as its strong commitment to its team members, made for a perfect match as we begin to establish the Terminix footprint in Canada.
Mark Joseph adds: "When comparing companies with the resources to grow and improve Magical, our top priority was making sure our customers and our employees would be taken care of. We have a tradition of providing exceptional service to uphold at Magical, and we were very careful to select a company that would enhance our service offerings, provide more opportunities for our associates, and maintain our tradition. We've found that in Terminix."
Headquartered in Memphis, Tenn., Terminix services approximately 3 million commercial and residential customers in 47 US states and to 15 different countries. T: 901-597-1383
