HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. — Pye-Barker Fire & Safety just acquired AlarmTech Inc., according to a joint announcement.

The latter specializes in security systems, fire alarm systems, access control and CCTV for customers in Seattle and the surrounding area. Pye-Barker is, of course, the largest fully integrated and full-service fire protection, life safety and security services provider in the U.S.

Adding AlarmTech’s skilled team, with expertise in low-voltage systems, complements Pye-Barker’s growing presence delivering integrated life safety services in Washington.

AlarmTech Inc. is located just north of Seattle, in Mountlake Terrace, Wash. The company protects businesses and commercial customers with end-to-end fire alarm and security services. These, of course, include design, installation, maintenance, inspections and 24-hour emergency monitoring.

Why Pye-Barker Acquired AlarmTech Inc.

This move reflects Pye-Barker continuing its high-velocity, but purposeful, acquisition strategy. The company seeks to partner with the country’s best life safety companies. With each acquisition, Pye-Barker says, it gains team members who know their craft and their local communities.

In turn, those team members receive opportunities for career growth and can define their legacy by leveraging Pye-Barker’s resources. AlarmTech’s team will be influential in making sure that their customers retain the personal service that they’ve come to expect.

According to Richard McCurdy, AlarmTech’s president, “At AlarmTech, we take great pride in providing a vital service that protects our neighbors and community.” He continues, “Joining Pye-Barker, which has grown to be the premier acquirer in our industry while maintaining a small business feel in each community it serves, just makes sense.”

McCurdy concludes, “We’re able to offer enhanced safety services to care for our existing and new customers.”

Pye-Barker’s Incredible Success

Bart Proctor, CEO at Pye-Barker, touted that Pye-Barker has achieved incredible success by investing in teams like those at AlarmTech. He describes them as people “…who know their customer base and are trusted and well-respected.”

Proctor continues, “By joining with Pye-Barker, AlarmTech can provide customers with full fire-code compliance through our existing fire protection services in the Seattle metro, which will benefit AlarmTech’s company growth, employee opportunities and customer satisfaction.”

Pye-Barker confirmed that AlarmTech’s skilled team will continue to serve customers in Washington. They’ll have the backing of Pye-Barker’s resources and support in doing so.
