Pye-Barker Acquires Brightspeed Security Systems

ATLANTA — Pye-Barker Fire & Safety will now be able to service customers in Arkansas and northern Louisiana thanks to its acquisition of Brightspeed Security Systems.

Brightspeed, based in Monroe, La., inspects, services and installs fire alarm, fire detection, security and video surveillance systems in Louisiana, Arkansas and Texas. It also provides central monitoring services. Pye-Barker acquired Brightspeed Security Systems, which operated as CenturyLink Security prior to October 2022, from Brightspeed.

"It's exciting to now be aligned with the premier fire, life safety and security company in the United States," said Cassandra Ivy, Brightspeed Security Systems Branch Manager. "I've worked in both large and small companies and the opportunity to join Pye-Barker is unique and special. Pye-Barker is the security leader, while maintaining the close-knit culture of a small mom and pop shop. Leadership genuinely treats team members like family, and the career growth opportunity for our team will be limitless, something I've long wished for. I'm also thrilled that through this partnership, we'll be able to provide additional services to protect our customers and community."

"Brightspeed Security Systems has earned the trust of its customers by being reliable and effective," said Pye-Barker CEO Bart Proctor. "The Pye-Barker formula looks to partner with teams like Brightspeed Security Systems – people who are customer-focused and genuinely care for each other. We're excited about the enhanced offerings we'll be able to deliver to our customers and the bright future ahead for everyone."

Ivy will continue to lead day-to-day operations at Brightspeed Security Systems, with additional support and resources provided by Pye-Barker.

Rory Russell from AFS Mergers and Acquisition Services represented Brightspeed in the transaction.
