Pye-Barker Moves Into Iowa, Expands South Dakota Presence With Justice Fire & Safety Buy
Pye-Barker has acquired 17 companies in 2022 so far. Justice Fire & Safety specializes in the service, sale and installation of fire extinguishers, fire alarms, fire suppression systems, emergency lighting and more.
ATLANTA — Pye-Barker Fire & Safety announces it has acquired Justice Fire & Safety, which operates five locations across South Dakota and Iowa.
The company says this addition will enhance the service delivery to Pye-Barker customers in the state of South Dakota while also providing the opportunity to penetrate an adjacent market, Iowa.
Over the last year, Pye-Barker has grown its branch locations by nearly 20% through an aggressive acquisition strategy that is aimed at bringing together the most respected names in the industry that provide best-in-class service with an unwavering commitment to excellence in customer service, according to the company.
Justice Fire & Safety, headquartered in Sioux Falls, S.D., specializes in the service, sale and installation of fire extinguishers, fire alarms, fire suppression systems, emergency lighting, first aid equipment and AEDs.
It also offers training for fire extinguishers, CPR and first aid. The company operates four South Dakota locations in Rapid City, Watertown, North Sioux City and Sioux Falls, and an additional location in Storm Lake, Iowa.
“Partnering with Pye-Barker was a natural fit for us in our mission to provide the highest quality life safety and fire protection solutions for our customers,” says Mark Brenneman, president of Justice Fire & Safety. “We’re excited for this next step and the opportunities it will bring for our employees to prosper in their careers.”
Justice will continue to be operated by Brenneman, along with the company’s skilled and experienced staff, with support from Pye-Barker.
“Justice Fire & Safety has a stellar reputation for company culture, an intense focus on customer service and an industry respected training program which makes this acquisition a great addition to the Pye-Barker family,” says Bart Proctor, CEO of Pye-Barker.
The purchase marks Pye-Barker’s first since it acquired Wyoming-Based ComTronix in November.
