“Sam Pest Management has been a professional and well-run business for over 10 years, offering pest control services to both the B2C and B2B market sectors. We are extremely pleased that founders, Samuel Koh and YC Lim, share the Anticimex vision and continue to lead the branches in Melaka and Seremban. This transaction will allow us to better serve these growing states of Melaka and Negeri Sembilan in between Central & Southern Peninsula Malaysia, strengthening Anticimex’s overall position in Malaysia.”

Commenting on today’s announcement, Tony Hurst, President Anticimex Asia, said:
“The transaction adds two more branches to our current Malaysia structure, a strategic merger creating efficiency through density and increasing our coverage to better serve our National Account customers. With four young & enterprising owners also joining Anticimex Malaysia, together with their loyal ten years of employees, this is certainly an acquisition of talent to our business. Sam Pest employees will gain from being involved with a global pest management organisation that offers market leading pest control services.”
