Pye-Barker Fire & Safety Acquires Mountain Alarm
Mountain Alarm will retain its name and continue to be led by CEO Eric Garner and the existing management team.
ATLANTA — Pye-Barker Fire & Safety, based here, announces it has acquired Mountain Alarm Fire & Security.
Headquartered in Ogden, Utah, Mountain Alarm has 14 locations across the Intermountain West. The company provides alarm monitoring, installation, maintenance services, and inspection services for fire alarms, security alarms, CCTV systems, and access control systems in its regions.
Mountain Alarm is a family business that was founded in 1952. Today it has over 60,000 monitored accounts and over 350 team members. The company has a long history of growing both organically and through acquisition, having completed five acquisitions in 2021 and a total of thirteen over the last 3 years, according to the announcement.
Founded in 1946, Pye-Barker Fire & Safety is a leader in fire protection and life safety, with over 100 locations and 3,000 team members. It is a full-service company offering all the necessary specialties including portable extinguishers, restaurant fire suppression, special hazard systems, fire sprinklers, fire alarm, and security.
Pye-Barker says it invests heavily in providing the best-in-class training for its team while offering industry competitive benefits and is rapidly expanding its national footprint.
“The last few years I have paid close attention to Pye-Barker as they have acquired over 90 fire and life safety companies.”, says Eric Garner, CEO of Mountain Alarm. “I thought we were acquisitive with four or five acquisitions per year. I had to meet the Pye-Barker team to understand how they were performing close to twenty acquisitions a year. Almost immediately I realized that our vision for the industry, our company culture, and growth objectives were aligned. I knew partnering with Pye-Barker would allow us to continue to expand the business at a rapid pace, while providing limitless opportunity for our team.”
Mountain Alarm will retain its name and continue to be led by Garner, the existing management team and its team members. The company says it will continue to pursue growth both organically and through acquisition.
“Mountain Alarm’s ability to acquire alarm companies, elevate the customer experience, and integrate those companies into their software systems made them the perfect fit to be our platform for acquiring alarm companies”, says Bart Proctor, CEO of Pye-Barker. “We are excited to have the Mountain team join us in growing Pye-Barker.”
