Our legacy of innovation and expertise 

Rentokil's enduring legacy of innovation and expertise in pest control, cultivated over 95 years, stands as a tribute to the visionary work of Professor Harold Maxwell-Lefroy. Our journey from initiating pioneering treatments at the Houses of Parliament, which established our leadership, to becoming a global authority in the industry, underscores our profound commitment to innovation—a commitment that is at the very heart of our DNA, epitomised by our Global Research and Development Centre. This centre is not just a part of our business; it is the core of our pursuit of new and innovative ideas, driving us to develop groundbreaking products and services. Through this continuous commitment to innovation, Rentokil not only leads but also shapes the future of pest management globally, maintaining our reputation for deep industry expertise and forward-thinking solutions.

The Rentokil library

The Rentokil library, a cornerstone of this legacy, began in the 1960s when Rentokil scientists authored a series of classic textbooks on pests and pest control. These texts have served as foundational resources in the field, disseminating knowledge and best practices to both professionals and the public, showcasing Rentokil's commitment to advancing the understanding of pest management.

The Fetcham Injector

Another hallmark of Rentokil's innovative spirit is the invention of the Fetcham Injector by Norman Hicken in 1948. This revolutionary device, designed to treat woodworm in timber, marked a significant advancement in pest treatment technology. Its effectiveness and reliability led to over a million units being sold by the late 1950s, solidifying Rentokil's reputation as a leader in practical pest control solutions.

The Rentokil Film Unit

Complementing product innovations, the Rentokil Film Unit embarked on a mission to educate and inform the public about the risks and realities of pest infestations through a series of pioneering films. These productions, which highlighted the threats posed by various pests, not only won numerous awards but also underscored Rentokil's dedication to using various mediums to raise awareness of effective pest control.

Global partnerships for a safer world

Rentokil's commitment to fostering a safer world is exemplified through its strategic collaborations and partnerships with key industry bodies, including the integration of cutting-edge technology and innovation with partners like Google and PA Consulting. These alliances not only bolster our leadership in the pest control industry but also aim to advance food safety, improve the quality of pest control, and ensure consumer protection through adherence to global standards. 

Through these global partnerships, Rentokil is dedicated to addressing emerging trends, meeting new legislative requirements, tackling complex pest challenges, and safeguarding brands and communities, thereby underlining our unwavering commitment to global standards of quality, safety, and operational excellence.
