Modern Pest Services, An Anticimex Company, Acquires A&D Professional Pest Elimination

Modern Pest Services expands into Rhode Island and opens new branch.

Brunswick, ME –September 2, 2021 – Modern Pest Services announced its newest partner in New England with the acquisition of A&D Professional Pest Elimination based in Pawtucket, Rhode Island.

A&D Professional Pest Elimination is a local, family-owned and operated company providing commercial, residential, and industrial pest control throughout Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Massachusetts. Founded in 1990 by Anthony Tudino, A&D has seen tremendous growth throughout its market area. Joining Modern from A&D are 13 full-time team members.

Anthony Tudino, owner of A&D, commented about the acquisition, “We’ve come a long way from our humble beginning.  Back when A&D was first created, I remember driving to commercial business parks in my Datsun dressed in casual attire to hand out business cards. If a pest control treatment came about, I would go back to the Datsun and put on my crawl suit and perform the treatment.” Tudino continued, “My commitment from day one was to give customers the absolute best services the industry has seen. That commitment helped us grow tremendously. I’m 100% confident this tradition will continue as we join Modern.”

President of Modern Dennis Dube commented, “This is an exciting day for the team at Modern. I’ve known Tony and his team for several years. Modern has always admired A&D. Their commitment to their clients, their culture, and being a well-known local pest control provider made for a perfect fit to partner with Modern. This latest addition will only further our mission to be the most highly recommended pest control company in New England.” Dube further added, “We are also pleased to announce our ninth branch location in New England with the creation of our new Providence branch.”

This is Modern’s tenth acquisition in New England since joining Anticimex in 2017.

Paul Giannamore and Franco Villanueva-Meyer of The Potomac Company represented and acted as exclusive financial advisors to A&D Professional Pest Elimination in this transaction.
