Irish acquisition announced by Killgerm


BPCA member Killgerm Group Ltd announced the completion of its acquisition of Dublin-based Sprayclear Environmental Ltd.


Sprayclear is the leading supplier to the professional pest control service market in the Republic of Ireland.

Commenting on the deal, Rupert Broome, Killgerm Group Managing Director, said:

“Our Killgerm and PestWest operations have had a longstanding relationship with Sprayclear which has been built over the past 3 decades. As our nominated sub-distributor, over those years Sprayclear have been a key partner for us and when the opportunity arose to acquire the business, we jumped at it.

The Sprayclear operations are very similar in many ways to our operations within the Killgerm Division. As such, there is a natural fit between our businesses.

We see many opportunities for growth in the Republic of Ireland, and acquiring a physical presence in this important market will also complement and strengthen the existing footprint for Killgerm Division, alongside existing operations in Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK.”

Killgerm Group Ltd has its global headquarters based in Ossett, West Yorkshire, UK. The Group is a market leading supplier and manufacturer of professional pest control products and has operations in 12 countries on 4 continents around the world.
