The level of detail that Contego put into every aspect of their service and digital systems really stood out. I’m absolutely confident that I’m leaving my customers and employees in great hands.”

Michael Taylor, CEO and founder of Contego, commented:

“We’re super excited and proud to strengthen our business in Scotland with the addition of Pestguard Services Scotland. The merger of the two companies will see opportunities created and enhanced service delivery across the country.
