Pye-Barker Fire & Safety Acquires NJ Company

This addition of Metro Fire & Safety strengthens Pye-Barker's footprint in the state and the surrounding areas, the company said.

Georgia-based Pye-Barker Fire & Safety said Oct. 6 it has acquired Metro Fire & Safety Equipment in New Jersey.

Metro Fire & Safety Equipment offers full-service fire protection and life safety systems, including fire extinguishers, fire sprinklers, fire suppression systems, fire and security alarms and safety training, according to a news release announcing the acquisition.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“We’re proud to join the Pye-Barker family as we continue to grow in the New Jersey market,” said Brian Campbell, president of Metro Fire & Safety. “Under Pye-Barker’s guidance, we can serve additional customers and create new opportunities for our team members to continue building their careers.”

Pye-Barker Fire & Safety was founded in 1946 and now has more than 130 locations and 4,100 team members.

“Like Pye-Barker, Metro Fire & Safety grew from a small operation focused on extinguishers to a full-service company that provides critical protection to people and businesses in the communities they serve,” said Bart Proctor, CEO of Pye-Barker. “We’re excited to have Metro Fire on board and help them continue their legacy of quality service.”
