Purchase of Dundee-based pest control specialist announced

30 January 2017

Servest has announced the acquisition of Pro-Check Environmental Services Northern as it seeks to extend its services in the pest control sector.

Although the terms of the deal were not revealed, the announcement stated that growth within the pest control market was a "key value driver for Servest".

Pro-Check Environmental Services Northern has been in business since 2000 and serves companies and councils mainly in Scotland.

In addition to pest control, it also offers cleaning, hygiene and environmental services.

Founder Jim Devaney will now take on the role of area manager for Scotland.

The purchase is the third in four months for Servest and the close proximity of the Pro-Check premises to that of Arthur McKay's head office - acquired by the company in late 2016 - is also said to provide further opportunities.

Servest chief executive officer Rob Legge welcomed the Pro-Check team and said the move is part of his company's growth strategy.

"The acquisition marks an exciting start to the year as we continue to grow," he said.
