ATLANTA — Pye-Barker Fire & Safety announces the acquisition of Jacksonville, Fla.-based Bender & Modlin Fire Sprinkler. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
The acquisition is said to further strengthen Pye-Barker’s presence in Jacksonville and the surrounding markets of northeast Florida and southeast Georgia. Bender & Modlin will retain its name, leadership and employees.
Bender & Modlin Fire Sprinkler is a full-service fire sprinkler company specializing in commercial and industrial fire sprinkler and protection systems.
Allen Bender and Terry Modlin founded Bender & Modlin together in 1999 after a combined 50-year career as sprinkler contracting managers. Bender & Modlin is an active member of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), and supporter of the F.A.S.T. Apprenticeship Program and the National Institute for Certification in Engineering Technologies.
“Terry Modlin and I are thrilled to now be a part of the Pye-Barker family and to be moving to a new season in the evolution of our company. From the first meeting with Pye-Barker, it’s been evident that this is the right move. The process has been seamless, and we’re excited about the future for our customers and employees,” says Bender, president of Bender & Modlin. “We have a great personal relationship with the Pye-Barker management team, and all of us at Bender & Modlin Fire Sprinkler feel that we now have a genuine partner who has our best interest at heart.”
Bart Proctor, CEO of Pye-Barker, adds, “Bender & Modlin has a well-deserved reputation for consistently putting their customer first by recommending and building the most efficient and effective fire sprinkler systems in the industry. Their focus on the customer is unmatched and they’re a great group of people to work with. I couldn’t be happier that we are joining forces.”
Pye-Barker acquired Utah-based Paradise Fire Protection last month.
