Green Compliance buys Enviroguard

AIM-quoted Green Compliance has acquired the pest and bacteria control business Enviroguard for £1.6 million.

The deal is Green Compliance’s second this month, following the acquisition of FDSA Fire Protection Services for £550,000.

Upon completion of the deal John Somner, the current managing director of Enviroguard, will remain with the company as a consultant for a period.

John Prowse, CEO of Green Compliance, comments: ‘The acquisition of Enviroguard represents our third acquisition within the pest control and prevention sector and allows us to offer a quality and responsive service in this highly fragmented market.’

Established in 1984, Kent-based Enviroguard provides pest control and prevention services to public sector, retail and leisure businesses. The company has 14 staff, and in the year to July 2010 reported a net profit of around £274,000 on a turnover of £1.1 million.

Green Compliance provides water, fire and pest control and compliance services to UK companies.
