Newham pest control company wins national award


London Network for Pest Solutions (LNPS) has been named Small Pest Control Company of the Year at the National Pest Awards.

The Newham-based company beat competition from across the UK to win this prestigious accolade, which was presented at a ceremony in London.

The National Pest Awards judges were looking for an outstanding business that employs fewer than 20 pest control technicians and which goes the extra mile in delivering outstanding customer service. The winning company needed to be highly professional company, with a dedicated and motivated team.

LNPS Managing Director Paul Cooper said: “Winning this award is one of our proudest achievements. There are many excellent pest control companies out there and so to judged the best by experts in the industry is incredibly gratifying and I couldn’t be prouder of the team.”

LNPS has been described as ‘bold’ by other pest control companies for offering ‘unlimited’ visits and transparent pricing. Feedback from customers is excellent and thanks to increased profits there has been investment in more training, accreditations and better equipment.

Since the start of the business in February 2017, LNPS has more than doubled its turnover, doubled staff numbers, won national and local awards and launched a new sanitisation service.

As well as winning awards, this year LNPS is delighted to be sponsoring the Business Growth category at the 2022 Newham Business Awards and has been supporting others in the local community.

LNPS Managing Director Paul Cooper explains: “Our hope is that by sponsoring this award we can give something back to the business community that has supported us over the last five years. We want to identify and reward companies that possess the same levels of dedication and professionalism as LNPS.

“We are also keen to support the local community. As part of our sponsorship programme, you can now see the LNPS brand on the shirts of the Wapping Youth Football Team and we have recently purchased two summer houses for the Early Start Group to help children in East London. We have also sponsored new helmets for the amazing East London-based motorcycle display team Little Imps and later in the year we will be sponsoring an awards ceremony for disabled adults.”
