Pye-Barker says the acquisition makes it one of the largest fire and safety companies in the Northeast.
ATLANTA — Pye-Barker Fire & Safety announces the acquisition of Metro Fire & Safety Equipment in New Jersey.
This addition strengthens Pye-Barker’s footprint in the state and the surrounding areas, according to the company. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Metro Fire & Safety Equipment provides full-service fire protection and life-safety systems, including fire extinguishers, fire sprinklers, fire suppression systems, fire and security alarms, and safety training.
Metro Fire began in 1962 as a one-man fire extinguisher operation working out of a garage and has grown over the last 60 years in physical size and services. Metro Fire specializes in full-service fire and safety protection including design, installation, inspection, and repair to reduce safety risks and protect people and property. Metro Fire also sells industrial safety equipment and fire department supplies.
“We’re proud to join the Pye-Barker family as we continue to grow in the New Jersey market,” says Brian Campbell, president of Metro Fire & Safety. “Under Pye-Barker’s guidance, we can serve additional customers and create new opportunities for our team members to continue building their careers.”
Metro Fire & Safety will continue to be operated by Campbell, along with the company’s managers and technicians, with support from Pye-Barker.
“Like Pye-Barker, Metro Fire & Safety grew from a small operation focused on extinguishers to a full-service company that provides critical protection to people and businesses in the communities they serve,” says Bart Proctor, CEO of Pye-Barker. “We’re excited to have Metro Fire on board and help them continue their legacy of quality service.”
In recent months and through multiple acquisitions, Pye-Barker says it has become one of the largest fire and safety companies in the Northeast. The company acquired Integrated Security Group in Connecticut last month, as well as New York’s Briscoe Protective and New Jersey’s Complete Security Systems.
