Knaresborough pest control technology company acquires manufacturer of flying insect control systems

Knaresborough-based pest control technology company Pelsis Group has acquired Brandenburg, a manufacturer of flying and biting insect control systems, for an undisclosed sum.

Brandenburg has become a wholly owned subsidiary with all its 110 employees, customers and suppliers transferring to Pelsis.

The deal marks the second acquisition made by Pelsis in the last two months. The first was the purchase of Madrid-based professional pest control products businesses Sanitrade and distributor Vesta Distribuciones in December.

Brandenburg, which is headquartered near Dudley in the West Midlands, also has operations in North America based out of its facility in Saint Charles, Missouri. In addition, the company has a manufacturing plant in the Pune region of India.

Established more than 70 years ago the company delivers its products to 140 countries through an international distributor network.

Following the acquisition, Pelsis now has a turnover approaching €200m and employs more than 700 people across 18 sites located throughout Western Europe, the US and India.

Brandenburg founder and Chief Executive, Mathew Kaye, said: “It has been a long and rewarding journey to have built Brandenburg into the company it is today.

“We feel that our business is ready for the next stage in its journey. Joining the Pelsis Group presents a great opportunity for deep collaboration and further investment in product innovation. Ultimately, it improves our ability to grow and develop our business to serve our customers even better. We are very excited about the future.”

Last year, Pelsis purchased Lyon-based pest control supplier Edialux France in February and California-based manufacturer of humane bird deterrents Bird-B-Gone in May.

Pelsis Group Chief Executive, Derek Whitworth, said: “We are very pleased to be bringing Brandenburg into the Pelsis Group family of brands as the business shares similar goals, values and aspirations for the future.

“Operationally, it fits very well within our strategy of adding companies that are leaders in their category which can help to deliver synergies for our group.

“We see great potential for ongoing growth opportunities and there are many clear benefits of working together that will provide customers with enhanced levels of product innovation, service and support.”

Pelsis was advised on the legal and financial aspects of the Brandenburg acquisition by DLA Piper and EY respectively.
