Orkin Acquires Precision Pest Control and Bob’s Termite and Pest Services

ATLANTA – Orkin, Inc., acquired Precision Pest Control, Inc., Syracuse, N.Y., and Bob’s Termite and Pest Services, Woodbridge, Va., just prior to the end of 2008.

“We welcome the opportunity to expand our customer service areas in these growing markets,” said Bob Hines, director of acquisitions for Orkin. “We look forward to increasing our local presence in Syracuse and Woodbridge with the help of each location’s tenured employees.”

The acquisition of Precision Pest Control, formerly owned by Jeff and Amy Tomion, will help grow Orkin’s Syracuse and Buffalo, N.Y., locations. Precision received nearly 50 percent of its revenue from commercial pest control, a vital component of Orkin’s pest control business. The company’s tenured employees will join the Orkin team in providing local customers with quality service.

Bob Connor founded Bob’s Termite and Pest Services more than 20 years ago. Orkin has named Kevin Connor, Bob’s son and the most recent owner of the company, as the new Orkin location’s manager. Bob’s commitment to customer service and training align well with Orkin’s similar values. The acquisition is considered a wise strategic move for both companies, as Orkin gains an expanded customer base and excellent employees, while Bob’s benefits from Orkin’s well-regarded training and sales programs.
