Pye-Barker Fire & Safety has announced the acquisition of ComTronix, a commercial and residential security and fire alarm monitoring company in Wyoming.
This addition sees Pye-Barker expand its footprint in the state of Wyoming, strengthening its burgeoning alarm division and enhancing its communication and mass notification service offerings. Pye-Barker continues its acquisition strategy and has become a dominant provider in the fire, safety and security services industry in the United States.
ComTronix is an integrated security and life safety systems provider 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, Wyoming. Kopperud, who took the helm as company President in 2011, is a proud US military veteran and works with active and veteran military families.
Kopperud commented: “We are proud every day to serve the communities we live in and provide life-saving security solutions for our neighbors and friends. 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.”
Bart Proctor, CEO of Pye-Barker, said: “ComTronix is a great fit for the Pye-Barker family as we continue to expand our security offerings. We’re honored to work with the ComTronix team and learn from their 30+ years of industry experience.”
Scott Taylor, ComTronix General Manager, will oversee the business post acquisition and the company’s experienced alarm professionals will continue to service customers.
