Contego Environmental Services expands bird and pest control business with a London acquisition

BPCA Servicing Members, Contego Environmental Services has successfully acquired a rival company with an office in central London from which clients across the south of England will be serviced. 

Owner Michael Taylor plans to make the business a "truly national operation" over the coming years. Contego's customer portfolio already includes contracts for the NHS, Stagecoach, Asda, KFC, DTZ, Harry Ramsdens, Arriva, Gentoo and Durham County Council.

Michael had worked as an animal handler and trainer, looking after birds of prey for several of the highly successful Harry Potter films. He successfully established Contego Environmental Services in the North East back in 2004. Since then his company has expanded into other areas of the UK, employing a workforce of 22 pest controllers and support staff.
