Orkin Acquires Big Deal Exterminating of Puerto Rico

Posted By admin On May 30, 2012 @ 10:52 am In Pest Control, Press Center | No Comments

Rollins, Inc. through its subsidiary Orkin acquired substantially all of the assets of Big Deal Exterminating of Puerto Rico.

Jose Capo started Big Deal Exterminating in 1989, a year after his mother, Migdalia Rosario, sold her company, Ramalos Pest Control. Rosario was the first woman licensed to perform pest control in Puerto Rico in the early 1970s. Capo was five-years-old when Rosario took him to work with her, and through the years, Rosario taught him the pest control business. Capo will now take on a managerial role with Orkin.

“We are excited and optimistic with the merger of Big Deal and Orkin in Puerto Rico,” said J.R. Rodriguez, South Florida region manager for Orkin. “With our resources and the great reputation Big Deal has established on the island, we will be able to provide service to a much larger customer base.”

Big Deal Exterminating offers residential and commercial pest control in all of Puerto Rico. The business will move to an existing Orkin branch as part of the South Florida Region, which includes the Florida Keys and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

“The acquisition of Big Deal merges our existing operation with a quality company that has a long established and respected history in Puerto Rico,” said Kemp Anderson, Southeast Division acquisition manager for Orkin. “This is the type of company with which we would like to continue to merge.”
