Contego has expanded its market share in Scotland with the acquisition of Pestguard Services Scotland, for an undisclosed sum.
Founded in 1994 by Ian Fraser, Pestguard is one of the most respected, family-owned pest control companies in Scotland.
Mr Fraser said he grew the business through his commitment to providing exceptional customer care and quality service as standard.
He said: “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, chief executive and founder of Contego, said: “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.”
