The well-established grounds maintenance business has bought a brand new fleet of vehicles due to the expansion of their Pest Control division over the last 18 months. In July 2020 they welcomed their second pest control technician, with a further two starting in November 2020 and a fourth starting in May 2021.

The vans are custom-fitted to allow their new technicians to carry all the necessary equipment they need, such as racking, warning signs and ventilation for storing pesticides, storage for first aid kits, fire extinguishers and spill kits, a separate compartment for PPE and fitted with a wash basin to allow cleaning after each visit.

Managing Director Matt O'Conner commented:

"Many companies have faced difficult challenges throughout the pandemic, but it’s fantastic to see our pest control team expanding in both employees and customers."
