Servest has acquired Dundee-based pest control specialist Pro-Check Environmental Services Northern Limited.
Pro-Check has been providing pest control, cleaning, hygiene services and environmental solutions to local businesses and councils since 2000.
Global facilities management firm Servest said Pro-Check, which operates mainly in Scotland, provided the chance to grow its geographical coverage.
The Pro-Check Environmental Services Northern team will be joining Servest and founder Jim Devaney will take on the role of Scotland area manager.
Servest chief executive Rob Legge said the acquisition would allow Servest to offer clients extra pest services and expertise.
"The move forms a part of Servest's growth strategy and will help develop our already successful pest control division," he said. "The acquisition marks an exciting start to the year as we continue to grow."
Servest operates internationally, with corporate head offices in Bury St Edmunds, UK, and Johannesburg, South Africa.
