The European Commission has given its approval under the EU Merger Regulation to the proposed acquisition of several Rentokil Initial businesses by CWS-boco, a German subsidiary of Franz Haniel & Cie.


Originally announced on 16 December 2016, the deal will combine Rentokil Initial's Workwear and Hygiene businesses in Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Germany, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Poland, Slovakia, Sweden and Switzerland with CWS-boco's businesses in 17 countries.
