ATLANTA – Pye-Barker Fire & Safety has acquired three security and alarms companies from the Sonitrol Security Systems network, rapidly expanding its presence in the Carolinas.

Pye-Barker revealed that it closed in November on Sonitrol Security Services, Inc.; Sonitrol of Charleston, Inc.; and Sonitrol of the Midlands, Inc. Through these transactions, the company has gained a total of four new locations, strengthening its market position for integrated life safety protection in North and South Carolina.

All three Sonitrol companies offer security alarms, fire detection, video surveillance and access control services. Sonitrol Security Services, Inc. (dba Sonitrol of the Carolinas) operates locations in Charlotte, N.C., and Greenville, S.C., and according to Pye-Barker was the 2023 recipient of the Sonitrol Dealer of the Year award.

The owners of these acquisitions offered the following comments on their decision to join the Pye-Barker Fire & Safety family of companies:

"From our first meeting, the discussion with Pye-Barker centered around our people and our customers and having a strong commitment to do what we say we're going to do. These values and their commitment to be the best are identical to ours and ones we have worked to provide our customers over the last 35-plus years," said Wylie Fox, owner at Sonitrol of the Carolinas.

"Finding the right partner who will maintain our legacy was more important than the dollars received. We're thrilled to be aligned with a 77-year-old service company that really cares," noted Bill Price, owner at Sonitrol of the Carolinas.

"Sonitrol has been a part of our family for three generations, and this will remain true. We know that our family of dedicated employees will be cared for by Pye-Barker," said Alan Rama, owner at Sonitrol South Carolina.

"Our success is rooted in our commitment to our customers and our employees. I am confident that our decision to merge with a like-minded company is the right choice for continued growth," added John Rama, owner at Sonitrol South Carolina.

Pye-Barker CEO Bart Proctor said, "We are proud to bring on these growth-minded and values-oriented teams to be part of Pye-Barker. These additions support our vision to become the single-source provider of integrated fire protection and security services in every community."

Pye-Barker noted in its release that Fox and Price from Sonitrol of the Carolinas and the Ramas from Sonitrol South Carolina will remain with the company to help drive market share and continue to serve customers. As with other Pye-Baker acquisitions their teams of technicians and managers will also remain.
