Plunkett’s Pest Control, Inc. has acquired Mission Pest Management, LLC, a Greenville, PA-based pest control company that provides full-service pest control services in the surrounding areas of Greenville, Western PA and Eastern OH. This acquisition merges two privately-owned pest control companies and expands Plunkett’s service capabilities in the greater Greenville and Pittsburgh areas.
Aly Silva-Mulgrew, president of Plunkett’s Pest Control, says that “We are excited to welcome Mission Pest Management to the Plunkett’s Pest Control team. Mark Hoffacker has a great reputation for providing quality pest control services to his customers, and we are happy to have him on board.”
Mission Pest Management’s owner, Mark Hoffacker, commented on the merger, saying that, “As we contemplated selling our business, it was important to us that our customers continued to experience the same values and family-oriented atmosphere that has been a cornerstone of our company. We were apprehensive about selling to a larger corporation, but when the Aust Group introduced us to Plunkett's, we knew it was the right fit. We were thrilled to discover a like-minded company that shared our values and commitment to providing exceptional service. I am excited to join the Plunkett's team, return to the field, and work together to explore new opportunities. Together, we can build upon our strengths and take our service to new heights. The collaboration between our companies is sure to be a win-win for all involved.”
Mission Pest Management was founded in 2010 by Mark and Terri Hoffacker, who dedicated themselves to supporting both national and international missions through volunteering and fundraising efforts. Mark, who had already spent 33 years in the pest industry, brought his extensive experience and expertise to the business. Terri, on the other hand, played a crucial role in managing the administrative tasks that kept the company running smoothly. As part of the transition to Plunkett's Pest Control, Terri will temporarily join their team in an advisory capacity to ensure a smooth transition. She is eagerly anticipating her retirement and spending more time with their four children and soon-to-be four grandchildren. Mark, on the other hand, will take on a new role as Supervisor at Plunkett's, bringing his wealth of knowledge and experience to the team.
Founded in 1915 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Plunkett’s Pest Control is a privately-owned and operated corporation led by President Aly Silva-Mulgrew, and third-generation owner and board chair, Stacy O’Reilly.
Still based in Minneapolis, with regional offices in Columbus, OH and Farmington, NM, Plunkett’s Pest Control and Varment Guard Wildlife Services deliver professional pest and wildlife control services to over 70,000 residential and commercial clients in 22 states.
The Aust Group represented Mission Pest Management as the exclusive financial advisor on this transaction.
