Arrow Exterminators, Parent Company of Stark Exterminators, Announces the Strategic Acquisition of McKenzie Pest Control, Inc. in Lake Charles, LA

Merger Represents Arrow’s first office into the state of Louisiana

Atlanta-based Arrow Exterminators is pleased to announce the merger and acquisition of McKenzie Pest Control, a full-service company based in Lake Charles, LA providing high-quality termite and pest control services to residents and businesses located in the Southwest region of the state.  This transaction represents Arrow‘s first location in Louisiana and sets the stage for further expansion into the Bayou state.

“We are so pleased to welcome the customers and team members of McKenzie Pest Control to the Arrow family,” said Emily Thomas Kendrick, Chief Executive Officer of Arrow Exterminators. “Keith and Kim Dubrock are great folks who have built a great business with an excellent culture.  The company was founded all the way back in 1951 and the core values established then are alive and well and mirror those of Arrow today, so this merger is a perfect fit.  Given the ideal location of the business, it is a strategic one as well.”

“When we started looking for someone to purchase our business, we knew that we needed a company that provides exemplary customer service and was passionate about how customers and team members were treated.  We certainly found that in Arrow Exterminators and are very proud to now be part of the Arrow family,” said owner Keith Dubrock. “We wanted to give our team members an opportunity to be with a company where there would be growth opportunities and also offer our customers an expanded range of services.  All of my team members will continue their careers with Arrow Exterminators.”

“Established over 73 years ago, McKenzie Pest Control is very well regarded in the state of Louisiana and we are proud to have this strong, experienced team of professionals join the Arrow family.  Keith Dubrock is a very familiar name to many of the residents of Calcasieu Parish and is highly regarded by fellow PMPs.  We are continuously looking to merge with high quality companies who share our goals, principles and culture and we believe we found the perfect fit with McKenzie Pest Control” stated Tim Pollard, President and Chief Operating Officer.

McKenzie Pest Control will operate as Stark Exterminators.
