Company Profile

Rentokil Initial is one of the largest pest control operators in the world and, unlike most of the other key players, its footprint is truly global. This market has been growing at least 2x GDP for some time and this is forecast to continue. Rentokil Initial also operates a Hygiene operation - primarily across washrooms but now increasingly in sanitization and air purification products. Historically, this was a GDP/GDP+ growth market, but this growth may be set to improve. A final division, Protect and Enhance, is dominated by its French Workwear rental business (uniforms/linen).
