Hicare was founded in May 31, 1993 by the Godrej Group to provide pest control services to residential customers in Mumbai. It rapidly expanded to become a Pan-India player serving both residential and commercial customers. Eventually, it was acquired by Danish multinational group ISS Global in 2009.
In 2014, True North partnered with Mr. A Mahendran, who had founded the company in 2003, to acquire Hicare, based on expectations that the organised pest control services market in India will see rapid growth. Rising income levels and better awareness of health & safety issues among urban consumers will drive the home services segment while the commercial or B2B segment will be driven by expansion of key customer industries such as food, healthcare and commercial real estate as well as the evolving regulatory requirements in India.
True North will support the company's growth strategy that will include expansion of its branch network, and the introduction of new services & products.
Hicare is currently India's second largest pest control services provider, operating across the country through 52 branches in 27 cities. It serves over 100,000 residential customers and 10,000 commercial customers with over 1,500 employees and a leading network of franchise partners.
