Rockit Pest announces the acquisition of Ace Exterminating as former owner is called to serve his country.
Conway, SC, May 10, 2023 – Chris Powell and his family have had the pleasure of protecting thousands of homes and businesses from pests in Horry County, SC over the past few years. While serving as a local pest expert, Chris has also served in the National Guard for the last 15 years with deployments to Kuwait and Afghanistan. When Chris got the news he would once again be deploying for active duty, he was presented with a major hurdle for Ace Exterminating. Though it was a bittersweet decision, he ultimately decided that selling Ace would be the best option for his family and for their customers.
As a small, family-owned business, and short notice of deployment, Chris knew he would have to act swiftly to make the right decision for Ace. In many cases, selling a company can take months to finalize, and for Chris, time was of the essence. When going through his options, Chris selected Rockit Pest with the confidence they would be the best steward for the legacy he built.
“Personally, I can’t thank Rockit enough for their help and timeliness, given the nature of my departure. I’m going to miss serving my customers, but I’m excited for them to experience the benefits this transition brings. In speaking with previous sellers, I know Rockit truly cares about my team and customers, so I know our loyal patrons will feel right at home,” Chris stated.
“Partnering with Chris was an easy decision for us. He and his family are outstanding people and the fact that he is deploying soon to serve and protect our country says so much about what he stands for. I’m proud to say that at Rockit we have the ability to move very quickly on a sale for people in positions like Chris, who are working with a tight timeline. Ace Exterminating aligns with our commitment to providing top-notch pest control and is located perfectly within our expanding footprint in the Carolinas,” Ryan Bradbury, CEO of Rockit Pest explained. “We wish him a safe deployment and can’t thank him enough for his service. I want Chris to take comfort in knowing that Ace’s customers are in great hands at Rockit” Ryan added.
