Pye-Barker Fire & Safety has acquired Briscoe Protective in New York from Novidam Capital Partners. 

Briscoe Protective is the largest privately held security company in the NYC-Metro area and the 20th largest security organization in the United States as ranked on the SDM 100. The company specializes in fire alarms, intrusion alarms, access control and video surveillance for customers throughout New York City’s five boroughs, Long Island and Westchester. 

Briscoe Protective is managed by CEO Alexander Schuil who took the helm in 2016 and negotiated the acquisition and merger of Worldwide Security, SCAN Security, Bellringer Security, GC Alarm, Marlarm Security Group, Alarms R Us and Supreme Security, among others. Briscoe Protective was founded in 1978 under the name Delco Security Systems. The name was later changed to Briscoe Protective in honor of Bert Briscoe, the grandfather of a prior owner Bob Williams and coach of Lightweight World Champion Archie Moore, who inspired the company's mission to "do good."    

"This partnership with Pye-Barker will help us 'do more good' for the communities we serve and our employees," Schuil said. "With our shared values and philosophies and the additional resources from Pye-Barker, the future is bright together."

"Briscoe Protective is a respected name in security and fire protection for its lengthy industry experience and reputation for high-quality customer service," said Bart Proctor, CEO of Pye-Barker. "We are proud to work with Briscoe to further our shared values of investing in employees, protecting communities, and fostering a true family culture."

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed. Briscoe Protective will continue to be operated by Schuil.
