Dallas, TX – May, 2008 – HomeTeam Pest Defense was acquired in April by Rollins, Inc., a premier North American consumer services company based in Atlanta, Georgia.
Prior to the sale, HomeTeam was the third largest residential pest management company in the U.S and is still the largest servicing homebuilders. Established in 1996, the company works with over 1,000 builder partners and currently performs more than 1 million pest control services a year. HomeTeam emerged as a leader in pest management based heavily on its innovation of Taexx®, HomeTeam’s built-in pest control system installed in tens of thousands of new homes each year.
“We found a partner who values our operating model and wants us to operate as a wholly owned subsidiary,” said Bob Wanzer, president and chief executive officer of HomeTeam Pest Defense. “Partnering with Rollins will provide HomeTeam growth opportunities in additional markets.”
HomeTeam Pest Defense, a nationally recognized leader in the pest control management industry, is currently the nation’s largest pest control company working with homebuilders. HomeTeam is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Rollins, Inc. The company offers pest control and termite treatment services through traditional methods and advanced products, such as its innovative Taexx® built-in pest control system. The company operates 50 branch locations mostly in the Southern portion of the country and operates as Wilson Pest Defense in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
