Anticimex is a leading specialist in preventive pest control and related services, with operations in 17 countries. We have shown growth every year since our inception over 80 years ago. Driven by strong organic growth and over 40 acquisitions, we have over the past three years almost doubled our sales and grown operational EBITA by 144 per cent.
Our know-how within pest control combined with rapid expansion has led to Anticimex today being one of the leading international specialists in pest control. We have a well-diversified customer base of 2.9 million retail and commercial clients and 73 per cent of our income is in recurring revenues coming from subscription-based contracts and insurance solutions.
The market for pest control is non-cyclical and grows faster than GDP, driven by the increasing amount of pest-related incidents. Behind this growth lie trends such as increased travel, urbanisation and climate change. Moreover, sustainability concerns along with new and stricter regulations and hygiene standards increase the demand for non-toxic solutions. These developments provide opportunities for those pest control companies that have the capacity and scale required to develop and offer digital and scalable preventive systems.
