Terminix Acquires ABC Exterminating Inc.

ABC Closing

Monroe, Connecticut – The Aust Group is pleased to announce the most recent acquisition of their client, ABC Exterminating Inc. based in Monroe, Connecticut to Terminix.

ABC Exterminating Inc. was founded in 1983 by Emmett Lee Sr. as a full-service pest and termite control business. One year after inception, Emmett Lee Jr. joined the family business full time and became the owner of ABC in 2016. Since then, Emmett Lee Jr. grew ABC Exterminating Inc. into one of the premier pest control companies in Fairfield County and expanded the Company’s service area into New York. Emmett Lee Jr. attributed their success to valuing each customer and focusing on 100% customer satisfaction. ABC Exterminating Inc. has participated in various trade associations such as National Pest Management Association (NPMA), Connecticut Pest Control Association (CPCA), and New York Pest Management Association (NYPMA) and was featured as part of the Sentricon® Deader Than Dead Tour.

Emmett Lee Jr., President of ABC Exterminating, said, “When I contemplated selling my business, the most important factor was who should I have in my corner to guide me through this challenging process. After meeting with Stuart and his team, the choice was immediately clear. I felt throughout the entire process like I was dealing with friends and family. Every step of the way, they always had my back and my company’s best interests at heart. They told our story and shared my journey in a wonderful historical chronology which set the stage for negotiations that enabled me to get an offer that far exceeded my expectations. There is no doubt that without The Aust Group’s expertise and many previous transactions, I would have never been in that position. If you are looking for professionalism, integrity, and credibility when the time comes to take what is probably one of the biggest steps in your life, look no further than The Aust Group. I am sincerely grateful to have had them as a partner in this endeavor.”

Stuart Aust, Principal of The Aust Group, said, “We’re very excited to share the news on the acquisition of our client, ABC Exterminating to Terminix. Not only has Emmett built an incredible business, but it was a pleasure working alongside him and getting to know his family throughout this process.”
