10:42am Friday 18th January 2013 in Business news
KNARESBOROUGH facilities management business P+L Systems has bought the brand assets and business of Pest-Stop from Procter Brothers of Garforth.
The Pest-Stop brand covers a broad range of pest control products sold through a range of distributor customers.
Peter Mangion, managing director of P+L Systems, said: “We are delighted to be adding the Pest-Stop brand to our ever increasing portfolio of brands in the sector.
“Pest-Stop has enjoyed strong growth in recent years through a combination of long-standing and traditional pest control products, supported by the addition of innovative new products to the range.
“We are also pleased to be able to secure continuity of customer and supplier relationships through the transfer of key staff to our business, as well as the Pest-Stop brand itself.”
Jeremy Procter, managing director of Procter Brother, said: “The production and supply of pest-control products from Procter Brothers goes back more than 100 years, but now is the time to move on and we want to dedicate our focus to the business-to-business divisions we have within Procter, such as machine guarding, security fencing and concrete products.
“I’m delighted that P+L Systems have been the successful buyer of Pest-Stop, as it was important to me that the right sort of business took over the reins and retained the brand’s ethos of ‘serious pest control products which work’ – and I know P+L will do that.”
Andy Simmons, will continue in his role managing the division and the business said it would be business as usual for Pest-Stop’s existing customers.
