Successful And Well Established Pest Control Business - Oxfordshire


Advert ref: 1985SH

This is a very well established pest control business that has an enviable client base, predominantly in Oxfordshire, but also in the surrounding counties.
The majority of the clients are commercial, however services are also offered to domestic clients, but this only represents about 20% of the turnover.

The commercial clients are very lucrative as they nearly all have regular call patterns that can be planned many months in advance. The clients include a number of the renowned colleges and universities in Oxfordshire, various divisions of the local NHS Trust, the Environment Agency, Hotels, Country Estates, Schools, Care Homes, Hotels, Manufacturing Businesses and Construction, to name a few. 

There are so many other services that could be bolted on and sold into the existing customer base. Businesses already involved in Washroom Services, Fire Protection or Cleaning Services would potentially stand to benefit from the addition of this business, and there may be many more.
Likewise it would also make a really good acquisition for a business that is already operating in the Pest Control sector and either looking to expand their customer base, or move into a new geographical area.

Our Opinion:

This is clearly a very established business, which is very well known and well regarded in the area. It was already very profitable, but the addition of the recently signed new contract can only improve that position further. 
Genuine independent businesses like this do not come up very often, and so we would strongly recommend that you register your interest as soon as you are able.

Key features:

  • Trading for over 35 years.
  • Mainly commercial contracts.
  • Enviable client base including Colleges, Hospitals, Hotels, Country Estates, Manufacturing, Construction, Housing Association, Care Homes & Schools. 
  • Not tied to specific location although does need Oxfordshire base.
  • New contract just signed likely to add at least 25% to turnover.
  • Scope to expand and promote into new areas.
  • Experienced staff in place with owner willing to assist during handover.
