BOSTON, MA & JACKSONVILLE BEACH, FL – December 16, 2021 – Dubin Clark, a private equity firm focused on building niche market leaders in the lower middle market, announced today that its holding company, Super Home Services, LLC (“SHS”), has acquired SWAT Mosquito Systems, LLC (“SWAT”). Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Founded in 2006 and headquartered in Miramar, Florida, SWAT is a leading full-service provider of permanent automated mosquito misting systems for residential homes in South Florida. SWAT provides installation of new misting systems as well as repair, maintenance, and service, including tank refills of existing systems. In addition, SWAT also offers customers the ability to integrate a permanent pest solution with existing landscapes, providing constant insect protection to the property.
In July 2021, Dubin Clark formed SHS to partner with leading companies to provide a concierge in-home service solution throughout the Southeastern United States. SHS previously acquired Evergreen Lawn & Pest Control, Inc. in July 2021 and an HVAC company in September 2021.
Brent Paris, Managing Partner at Dubin Clark, stated, “Through its highly effective product and service offering, outstanding customer service, and strong brand recognition, SWAT has demonstrated solid growth since 2006. We are excited to add SWAT to the SHS platform and look forward to working with the team to fuel further growth, including geographic expansion throughout the broader Florida region.”
SHS CEO George Godfrey commented, “We are thrilled to add SWAT to the growing SHS platform. We believe this acquisition will provide both unique and complimentary service offerings to our loyal customers. We are eager to leverage the SWAT team’s market leadership and deep expertise. Together, we look forward to providing customers continuous protection from insects with superior permanent pest solutions at their homes and businesses.”
Steve Jenkins, CEO of SWAT Mosquito Services added, “We believe this partnership is a strong strategic fit for the company. Our team is excited to leverage the knowledge, expertise, and operating experience of SHS and Dubin Clark to help guide and support our growth.”
Dubin Clark’s other platform acquisitions in the home services sector include Affordable Water Heaters & Plumbing (acquired in July 2020) and Sila Heating & Air (sold to Morgan Stanley Capital Partners in May 2021).
