ATLANTA – Pye-Barker Fire & Safety is celebrating its success in 2023 after a high volume of acquisitions and record organic growth.

The company stated that it has used this momentum to ensure its people come first and its values-driven culture is protected. By using an aggressive acquisition strategy, enhancing its service offerings and continually investing in its team members, Pye-Barker said it is poised to fulfill its mission to be the national provider of choice for full fire code compliance.

"At Pye-Barker, we've been successful by living our values – Customer-bias, Trust, Respect and Commitment – and upholding the promises we've made to all who have chosen to be part of our family," said Bart Proctor, CEO at Pye-Barker. "By cultivating a workplace of respect, promoting from within and giving our team members opportunities to grow and support their families, we've attracted the best team in the business. The Pye-Barker family is made up of individuals who are dedicated to their craft and to protecting their communities, and we will continue to seek culturally aligned businesses to join us in our mission."

That strategy appears to be paying off as well, Pye-Barker said that its branches outperformed their sales goals in 2023. Additionally, the company realized a 621% 3-year growth rate, was recognized in the top 20% of the Inc. 5000 Fastest-Growth Private Companies in America list and reached No. 9 on the SDM 100 ranking of U.S. security businesses.

Among the 31 companies that joined Pye-Barker in 2023 are: Koetter Fire Protection, S&S Sprinkler, Vanguard Fire & Security, AC Daughtry Security Systems, Amherst Alarm, Shiver Security Systems, The Hartline Company, IT&M Division, Bevan Security Systems, Automatic Fire Sprinklers, Acadiana Security, Pyrotech, Advanced Engineered Systems, Excel Fire Sprinkler, AAA Fire Safety & Alarm, Iowa Fire Equipment Company, AMS Connect, Maximum Security, Comtrol Systems and Alarmguard Security. Pye-Barker embraced more than 1,000 new team members, added 50 new branches and now operates nearly 200 locations across 40 states.

Security Systems News (SSN) most recently covered Pye-Barker’s acquisition of American Fire & Safety Supply, a company servicing customers in Northern Florida and Southern Georgia. "Pye-Barker is the clear choice in a partner, one that will provide growth opportunities for our team and enhance the capabilities we offer our customers," said Eddie Lewis, owner at American Fire.

"I'm in the field every week, visiting different branches. There's incredible comradery among our teams as we integrate new companies into our family, and that's because we put our people first," said Pye-Barker COO Joseph Hightower. "Pye-Barker helps both business owners and team members define their legacy."

Pye-Barker is actively engaged in exploring strategic acquisitive partnership opportunities for companies that are values focused. The company encourages parties interested in selling their fire or life safety business to visit to learn more.
