Pye-Barker Acquires Wyoming-Based ComTronix
ComTronix provides integrated security and life-safety systems, including fire and intrusion alarms, 24/7 fire and security alarm monitoring, access control, intrusion detection, video, and more.
ATLANTA — Pye-Barker Fire & Safety announces it has acquired ComTronix, a commercial and residential security and fire alarm monitoring company based in Wyoming.
With this addition, Pye-Barker expands its footprint in the state of Wyoming, strengthens its burgeoning alarm division and enhances its communication and mass notification service offerings.
Pye-Barker says the addition continues its aggressive acquisition strategy and has become a dominant provider in the fire, safety and security services industry in the United States.
ComTronix provides integrated security and life-safety systems including fire and intrusion alarms, 24/7 fire and security alarm monitoring, access control, intrusion detection, CCTV, business telephone systems, overhead paging and structured cabling.
Founded in 1989 by Richard Fisher, Bruce Kopperud and Rob Dobler, ComTronix now operates two locations in Casper and Sheridan, Wyo. Kopperud, who took the helm as company president in 2011, is a proud U.S. military veteran and is honored to work with active and veteran military families.
“We are proud every day to serve the communities we live in and provide life-saving security solutions for our neighbors and friends,” says Kopperud. “We know that Pye-Barker holds the same values as the ComTronix team — commitment to customer care, hard work and community. This partnership will enable us to do more for our customers and our employees.”
ComTronix General Manager Scott Taylor will oversee the business post acquisition and the company’s experienced alarm professionals will continue to service customers.
“ComTronix is a great fit for the Pye-Barker family as we continue to expand our security offerings,” says Bart Proctor, CEO of Pye-Barker. “We’re honored to work with the ComTronix team and learn from their 30+ years of industry experience.”
The purchase marks Pye-Barker’s first since it acquired Survivor Fire & Safety Equipment and Total Fire & Safety Equipment, collectively “Survivor Fire,” in October.
