Acheta Pest Control joins Kiwa

Kiwa is delighted to welcome Acheta Consulting Ltd to the Kiwa UK family. The new company adds pest management services to our portfolio.

Acheta’s core business activities are independent pest management inspection, training and consultancy. These will all continue unchanged, as does the Acheta Management Team, headed by Dr John Simmons and supported by regional managers Ian Adamson and Mark Bowron.

Commenting on the sale, Paul Brown, CEO of Kiwa UK said: “I am delighted to welcome the Acheta team to Kiwa. Acheta’s expertise and reputation in the marketplace complements our Kiwa Agri Food service offering perfectly. The potential synergies from this joining of forces are many, as are the opportunities for innovation, growth and an expanding UK and international presence”.

John Simons, Managing Director of Acheta, added: “I have grown the business over 19 years to be highly professional, well respected and staffed by excellent employees. The Agri Food division of Kiwa is a very good fit for what we do. We share some customers already, and we now have an opportunity to expand into Kiwa’s customer base, and vice versa. As Kiwa is a global operation, the potential to eventually expand the Acheta offering internationally is both significant and exciting!”.
