Over the years, Enviro-Safe developed expertise in pest management for supermarkets, restaurants, and warehouses. By the late 1990s, the company had implemented roach baiting techniques across all its restaurant clients, solidifying its reputation in the industry. Jeff commented, “We are delighted that Alliance and PestCo will continue providing exceptional service to our valued customers. Our sincere gratitude goes to the Cetane team for guiding us through this transaction with such care and expertise.”

Bob Williamson, Pest & Lawn Director at Cetane Associates, commented, “It was a pleasure working with Jeff through the transaction process. We wish him the best in all his future endeavors.”

Cetane served as the sole arranger for Enviro-Safe Pest Control, Inc. Cetane advised on the sale, including an initial valuation opinion, marketing the business through a confidential process, assisting in negotiating the final deal terms, and coordinating the due diligence process. Team members Bob Williamson, Barrett Conway, Duncan McMurchie, and Dalton Brooks managed the transaction.
