PestPulse, a Terminix Company, Acquires Prevent a Pest of Cork, Ireland

The Potomac Company is pleased to announce the acquisition of Prevent a Pest by Pest Pulse, a subsidiary of Terminix.

Prevent a Pest is a commercial-only pest control service with headquarters in Cork, Ireland, the second largest city in the Republic of Ireland. Prevent a Pest specializes in the safety of pharmaceutical, healthcare, food production, retail, hospitality, transport, and warehousing areas for 10 counties in Ireland. 

John Phelan founded Prevent a Pest in 1994 and has since been acting managing director. For almost two decades, the company has provided general pest and cockroach control, bedbug treatments, bird and rodent control for its 1000+ commercial customers.

Prevent a Pest is ISO 9001, 14001, and EN 16636 approved—each a certification proving the company is quality assured and environmentally approved. With each certification, Prevent a Pest successfully established its quality reputation in Ireland. 

John Phelan said, “To have the opportunity to continue to grow with a company that appreciates our pest control expertise and cares about our culture, customers and staff as much as we do was important to us. Pest Pulse’s technology and national coverage will only enhance the high-quality services we provide to our customers every day.”

In regard to working with Potomac, John and Sylvia Phelan said, “Potomac came very highly recommended by a former client and they did not disappoint. We were delighted with the enthusiasm and engagement that Paul, Franco and the Potomac team provided."

"Although we own a small business, we always felt well-advised and that we were their only client. Going with Potomac we know that we absolutely maximised what we were able to receive for the business. Potomac has a fabulous ability to present your business in the best possible way, get the real players involved and manage the process."

In this transaction, Prevent a Pest will join PestPulse and significantly expand its footprint in Ireland.
