Pye-Barker Acquires Industrial Fire and Safety Equipment

The acquisition is said to further strengthen Pye-Barker’s footprint in Birmingham, Ala. and the surrounding areas.

ATLANTA — Pye-Barker Fire & Safety announces it has added Industrial Fire and Safety Equipment, a provider of fire extinguisher and suppression services, to the Pye-Barker family of companies.

The acquisition is said to further strengthen the company’s footprint in Birmingham, Ala. and the surrounding areas.

Industrial Fire & Safety Equipment (IFSE) specializes in the installation, inspection and service of fire extinguishers and suppression systems, as well as fire safety training.

The company also supplies safety equipment to customers in industries including mining, construction, fire protection, food services, manufacturing, medical, nuclear and utility. Founded in 1958 by the Langston family, IFSE says its mission is to ensure customers get the fire protection solutions they need to keep workers safe.

“In the Pye-Barker story we see our own — a commitment to a family-oriented culture, excellent customer service and opportunities for employee growth,” says Griff Langston, president and owner at IFSE. “I’m proud to have Pye-Barker backing our team.”

IFSE will continue to be operated by Lee Langston and Kyle Ware with additional resources and support from Pye-Barker Fire & Safety.

“As a family-operated business for the last 64 years, IFSE reflects Pye-Barker’s own beginnings as a business built on hard work and reliable service,” says Bart Proctor, Pye-Barker’s CEO.

The acquisition is the fire protection and life-safety provider’s third of the month following deals for Connecticut’s Integrated Security Group and New York-based Briscoe Protective.
