The Journey of a lifetime…

The Remarkable Journey Of The Specialists Family.

Our journey begins in 1978.

As a result of changes in the then Rhodesia, the du Toit family, Johan and Charl, decided to relocate to South Africa. Johan  was the first to depart, and he only went as far as Pietersburg (now Polokwane). He was unemployed, and as they had a small Pest Control business in Rhodesia, he decided to try his hand at this. With the help of his gardener, a ladder on the roof of his Cortina, Pest Control Specialists was born


Over the past 40 years, out journey has involved many highlights, challenges, people who left their mark, but ever onward and forward we went.


Louis Lindenberg (CEO)

 After 20 years in the corporate environment, working 6 days a week and never being at home, when the opportunity came my way to join Pest Control and Cleaning Specialists it was a “heaven sent”.

I started in my branch in Pretoria City in April 1995 and in the first month did a “staggering” R 37 000.  Imagine my joy when 2 months later I cracked the R 100 000 mark.  Since then, we have never looked back.  A year later I acquired Pretoria North, and from 1997 to 1999, the business grew to the extent where we were doing in excess of R 200 000 per month, at times even exceeding the R 500 000 mark.


In January 2000, I joined The Specialists Group as a shareholder, having sold my branch in the knowledge that it can only go from strength to strength.

As a 37.5% shareholder of a growing business, I am very excited about the future.  Our vision is to increase our footprint in Southern Africa, add more divisions, grow and expand our existing divisions, thereby building an even greater force to be reckoned with in our industry.

This we will accomplish by means of the strong partnerships we forge with our fellow stakeholders in our business, our Franchisees.
