CHANTILLY, Va. – Pavion (formerly Corbett Technology Solutions), has announced its acquisition of RFI Enterprises.

The Chantilly, Va.-based provider of integrated solutions for fire, safety, security, and critical communications said that the acquisition accelerates its expansion in the Western United States, and fortifies its position as a market leader. This marks the company's 19th acquisition since its partnership with Wind Point Partners in June 2020.

"RFI is extremely well known and respected for setting the standard in the western region for many years," said Pavion CEO Joe Oliveri. "This is a very important development for Pavion and our industry at large. They add so much to our capabilities, and we could not be more excited to add RFI employees and customers to the Pavion family. Pavion customers can now leverage the deep capabilities of RFI across their fire and security platforms."

Founded in 1979 by Larry Reece, RFI is headquartered in San Jose, Calif. Dee Ann Harn assumed the CEO position in 2011 and has continued to grow RFI on its founders’ values of integrity, honesty, and hard work. Today the company operates from offices in California, Nevada and Washington delivering design, installation and maintenance of integrated security and life safety solutions to healthcare, technology, and higher education customers.

"At RFI, our people make the difference. We see the same culture and customer focus in Pavion DNA," Harn said. "We look forward to starting our 45th chapter with a new identity, enhancing our capabilities to deliver service across the U.S. and 22 countries, ensuring we sustain service excellence for our customers and continued opportunities for our employees, while respecting the RFI legacy built by the Reece family."

Pavion said that customers on the west coast can now rely on a “best-in-class 'Pavion Experience,'” while RFI customers can now leverage the additional resources and capabilities of Pavion across the world to include fire alarm, life safety, security, and critical communications solutions.

"Combining the RFI team with our recently announced Reece Complete Security Solutions acquisition and the Pavion resources already supporting the Western region, makes Pavion the clear choice for enterprise customers seeking security, life safety, and integration solutions and services," added Jim Muncey, Pavion security business unit president. "We are very excited to welcome RFI employees to Pavion and look forward to connecting and protecting our customers in the region."

Earlier in March, RFI was named as one of the Security Industry Association (SIA) Members of the Year for 2023. For more information, please visit
