Our Journey – The Story of Pestforce

Pestforce UK was founded in 2008 by Paul Wilkinson in Boston, Lincolnshire. In 2014, Sean Taylor and his business partner Paul Smith acquired the business, transforming it into the Pestforce we know today. Since 2020, Sean Taylor has been the sole owner, bringing the Pestforce brand under The Forces Group umbrella. By 2024, we have expanded to over 70 franchisees operating across England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. For details on our current coverage, please visit Our Locations.
