Contego and Pestguard Services Scotland
Contego strengthens Scottish market with the acquisition of Pestguard Services Scotland Ltd.
Contego expands market share in Scotland with the acquisition of Pestguard Services Scotland Ltd.
Founded in 1994, Pestguard is one of the most respected, family-owned pest control companies in Scotland. Owner and founder Ian Fraser had grown his business over the past 26 years through his commitment to providing exceptional customer care and quality service as standard. He remarked “One of the most important decisions I had to make when selling the business, was to choose a company whose values aligned with ours and would give opportunity for growth and development for our teams. The level of detail that Contego put into every aspect of their service and digital systems really stood out. I’m absolutely confident that I’m leaving my customers and employees in great hands.”
Michael Taylor, CEO and founder of Contego, commented “We’re super excited and proud to strengthen our business in Scotland with the addition of Pestguard Services Scotland Ltd. The merger of the two companies will see opportunities created and enhanced service delivery across the country. Ian has built a strong business with a long history of commitment to his customers and excellent service; we’re proud to have been chosen to take up that mantle.”
Michael McGee from Evolution Business Advisory acted as financial advisors and James Butler from Endeavour Law represented and acted as legal advisors to Contego Environmental Services Ltd in this transaction completed on the 30th September 2021.
