Rentokil PCI, the leading pest control and hygiene service provider in India and known for its expertise in pest control, has acquired Envocare Pest Control Solutions, a Mumbai-based pest control service provider through a 100% asset deal, from parent company SILA.
Envocare Pest Control Solutions is a provider of full-service environment management including general pest control services. It offers environmentally friendly services and products to customers. It caters to residential and commercial buildings and infrastructure projects. In 2016, SILA bought a majority stake in the company which it has now sold to Rentokil.
With this acquisition, Rentokil PCI expands its customer reach within the pest management sector. Rentokil PCI will further strengthen its position in the Indian pest control market as a result of this acquisition by adding leading companies in the corporate, facility management, and construction sectors as its customers. With this acquisition RPCI demonstrates its willingness to deploy capital and acquire quality businesses in Pest & Hygiene.
Mr David Lewis, MD of Rentokil PCI, said, “Envocare Pest Control Solutions will help expand Rentokil PCI’s industry-leading capabilities into the fast-growing market of integrated pest control services. Furthermore, Envocare specialises in eco-friendly pest management solutions, which aligns with Rentokil PCI’s goal of continuing to be the most sustainable and eco-friendly pest control company in India.”
Rushabh Vora, Co-founder & MD, SILA, said, “Over the past 6 years, we have enjoyed working with the Envocare Management to get the business off the ground. We will continue to focus on organic and inorganic growth of our core businesses. We are confident that the Envocare team will continue to excel under its new owner, Rentokil PCI, which is the market leader in the Pest Control space.”
“Rentokil PCI’s global reach and expertise will bring new products and solutions to our existing and future customers. The acquisition will facilitate long-term engagements with customers in the pest control services sector. We would like to thank the SILA team for their support in setting us up for the next leg of our journey.” said Mr Dilip Murkute, Managing Director, Envocare Pest Control Solutions.
