Pye-Barker expands Southeastern holdings with S&S Sprinkler acquisition

ATLANTA – Pye-Barker Fire & Safety has added S&S Sprinkler and its five locations throughout the Southeast to its growing portfolio of acquisitions.

A provider of fire protection and security, S&S's highly skilled team, resources and customer base will enhance Pye-Barker's service offerings and capabilities in the Gulf Coast states and broader Southeastern market.

"We are very excited to have the opportunity to partner with S&S,” said Bart Proctor, Pye-Barker CEO. “From their values-driven culture to their sophisticated and innovative approach to business, we are aligned with the commitment to providing our customers with top-tier services and solutions. With this acquisition, Pye-Barker is gaining a dedicated team, experienced leaders and key geographic locations in the Gulf States that bring us one step closer to being the single-source provider of choice in every U.S. market."

S&S Sprinkler's story began in 1971 as a fire sprinkler installer. In the '90s, it was purchased by Leland Moore, Sr., who along with a dedicated leadership team grew the company into a fully integrated "one-stop shop" for sprinklers, suppression, extinguishers, fire detection, alarms and security systems. The company, headquartered in Mobile, Ala., also operates locations in Baton Rouge, La.; Lake Charles, La.; Beaumont, Texas; and Charlotte, N.C. 

"Despite an influx of partnership opportunities as S&S has grown into an industry leader, we didn't take much stock in potential partners until meeting with Pye-Barker," said Moore, owner and chairman at S&S. "Pye-Barker understands our business and what our teams experience on the job. This partnership with Pye-Barker allows us additional resources, more financial strength, a larger geographic footprint, a broader talent pool and enhanced benefits and opportunities for our staff."

The current leadership team at S&S, along with a committee of team members, established the company's core values in 2000 as a backbone to the company as it grew. Those values served as a point of attraction between S&S and Pye-Barker.

"As I've gotten to know Pye-Barker's leaders through our work in the industry, I've seen our shared values in practice," said Parks Moore, president of sales and engineering at S&S. "I've witnessed their integrity through their interactions with the industry, their businesses and their own families whom I've gotten to know. I'm confident this is the best path forward for our team, customers and owners."

The S&S leadership team made up of Leland Moore, Sr., Leland Moore, Jr., Parks Moore, Mike Pepper and Justin Merrick will remain, along with their staff.
