Rentokil Initial Acquires Samson HealthCare Services

On 30 September, Rentokil Initial, one of Australia’s largest business services companies, acquired Samson HealthCare Services, a washroom and medical hygiene company with locations in Sydney, Newcastle and Canberra. The acquisition is in line with Rentokil Initial’s global strategy to continue growing its hygiene business and to pursue acquisition targets in higher growth markets such as the Pacific.

Alain Moffroid, Managing Director of Rentokil Initial in the Pacific said: “As one of the largest independent hygiene businesses in NSW & ACT, I am delighted that Samson is joining the Rentokil Initial ranks.”

Mr Moffroid says: “Like Rentokil Initial, Samson brings with it a strong commitment to world-class customer service and a dedicated and skilled team. As a result, there is a strong cultural fit between the two companies and I look forward to bringing Samson into the Rentokil Initial group.”

Former owners, Bill Samson and Geoffrey Samson, will be leaving the business immediately, while General Manager, Edward Golab, will stay on with Rentokil Initial to ensure a smooth transition for customers and staff.
