Whilst at PestWorld, one of the most debated pieces of news, certainly amongst the European trade delegates, was the announcement that UK-based P+L Systems had acquired the Environmental Care business of the Dutch Group de Ceuster.

In a press release sent out on Monday 20 October, it was announced that P+L Systems had acquired: “the chemical formulation and manufacturing companies, Denka International, based in Barneveld, Holland, and Edialux-Formulex, based in Bornem, Belgium with subsidiaries in the Netherlands, France and Switzerland.”

Read the full P+L release.  

This left those reading the news a little confused about the future of the Edialux group of companies – all well-known for their distribution activities and industry involvement within European pest control. Consequently, on his arrival at PestWorld in Orlando, Florida, Edialux France managing director, Serge Simon, was faced with numerous questions.

On his return to France, Serge, who has worked in the European pest control business for around 30 years, issued the statement below clarifying the position.

It reads:

“Following the recent takeover of Group de Ceuster Environmental Care business and in order to answer questions from customers and suppliers, we would like to point out that no shares of Edialux France have been sold. Nothing has changed in France, or with our subsidiary in Switzerland. These companies were, and still are, owned as a joint venture 50/50 between the Simon family and what was the Group de Ceuster (now P+L.). I remain in charge of these businesses and we will continue to work for the best of all our partners and employees. It is business as usual.

“Edialux Belgium and Edialux Holland have always been owned totally by the Group de Ceuster, so are now part of the P+L Systems portfolio. We would like to take this opportunity to wish all the best to the new owner of these two companies.”
