ATLANTA – Pye-Barker Fire & Safety just announced its most recent acquisition with the pickup of AC Daughtry Security Systems, further solidifying their position in the Northeast region.

Another in a line of monthly acquisitions for the growing provider, AC Daughtry offers fire alarm systems and inspections, intrusion alarms, access control, video surveillance, intercoms and environmental detection solutions for their commercial customers all over New Jersey, and southern New York (including NYC). In addition, the company offers consulting and custom security solutions.

"I believe that success relies on a commitment to simultaneously care for our team members and our customers," said Heather Kahl, president and owner of AC Daughtry. "When evaluating next steps for my team, I knew I wanted to join an organization like Pye-Barker that invests in their people while upholding high standards for customer service." AC Daughtry likens its business to a family-oriented working environment for its employees built on camaraderie, cooperation and giving back to the community.

"Pye-Barker is proud to bring on AC Daughtry, which reflects our own Core Values – Customer-bias, Trust, Respect and Commitment," noted Bart Proctor, Pye-Barker CEO. "By partnering with like-minded business owners like Heather, we have been able to exponentially grow Pye-Barker's footprint and become the largest industry player. We're excited and energized by AC Daughtry's commitment to its customers and community."

Pye-Barker most recently expanded its alarm division with the acquisition of Bevan Security Systems and at the end of January issued a call for sellers interested in partnering with the swiftly growing company.

The company stated that General Manager Tom Gallagher and his team of technicians will continue to operate AC Daughtry. The acquisition transaction was coordinated by Philip Gardner, President of B Safe, which merged with Pye-Barker Fire & Safety in April 2022.
