LODI, CA – Clark Pest Control announced today that it is acquiring Brooks Pest Control, a pest management provider based in Livermore, CA.
Clark Pest Control will bring Brooks’ 45 full-time employees onboard and will distribute Brooks’ 22,000+ accounts across 10 of the 28 service centers it operates in California and northwestern Nevada.
Brooks Pest Control was established in 2017 to provide service to residential customers in the San Francisco Bay Area, with a focus on the East Bay and Tri-Valley regions. The company’s footprint extends beyond those areas, however, with many accounts spread across the Central Valley and elsewhere in northern California. All those accounts have been serviced out of the company’s Livermore headquarters.
“We got to know Brooks Pest Control as a competitor, through our shared territory and a mutual respect for quality business practices and services,” said Robert Baker, president of Clark Pest Control. “The more we learned about their operation, the more we became convinced that it would make good business sense to find a common road forward.”
“Selling a company is never an easy decision,” said Eric Campbell, president of Brooks Pest Control. “Luckily for us, choosing to go with a company as reputable as Clark has made it a lot easier. We felt like there wasn't a company out there who took care of their customers and employees as well as Clark has for the past 70-plus years. We're excited to see where this partnership takes us.”
Brooks will retain its sales office in Orem, UT, along with sales teams, managers, and key executives, to help the company grow in other markets.
