ATLANTA—Pye-Barker Fire & Safety continued its California expansion by acquiring AMSconnect, a commercial security and alarm systems company in Palm Desert.

This deal marks Pye-Barker's first location in the Coachella Valley region of southern California, enhancing the company's full-service capabilities in the state, an important addition in Pye-Barker's mission to become the nation's preferred fire protection, life safety and security provider.

Pye-Barker AMSconnect provides a full suite of security services for businesses, homeowners, and community managers to protect lives and livelihoods. These include 24/7 alarm monitoring, fire and security alarms, video surveillance, emergency alert systems, access control and fully integrated AV, network, and smart device solutions.

AMSconnect is built on continual innovation and harnessing the power of technology to create a safer world and improve quality of life, according to the company.

"We chose Pye-Barker to continue the legacy of AMSconnect because of their high standards for customer service, their company values and the great management team," said Craig Snair, co-owner of AMS. "The entire process of working with Pye-Barker has exceeded our expectations."

"Pye-Barker continues to extend our full-service operations to every corner of California and the broader U.S. by partnering with values-oriented and innovative organizations like AMSconnect," said Bart Proctor, CEO of Pye-Barker. "We're proud to have AMSconnect – which recognizes our commitment to customer and team – as part of the Pye-Barker family."

AMSconnect's highly skilled team, along with Snair and President and Co-owner Stephanie Loog, will continue to serve customers in the Palm Desert area.
