Pye-Barker Fire & Safety has acquired Industrial Fire and Safety Equipment (IFSE), which provides fire extinguisher and suppression services, to the Pye-Barker family of companies. The acquisition further strengthens Pye-Barker's footprint in Birmingham, Ala., and the surrounding areas. 

IFSE specializes in the installation, inspection and service of fire extinguishers and suppression systems, as well as fire safety training. The company also supplies safety equipment to customers in industries including mining, construction, fire protection, food services, manufacturing, medical, nuclear and utility. 

Founded in 1958 by the Langston family, IFSE's mission is to ensure customers get the fire protection solutions they need to keep workers safe, according to the announcement. 

"In the Pye-Barker story we see our own — a commitment to a family-oriented culture, excellent customer service and opportunities for employee growth," said Griff Langston, president and owner at IFSE. "I'm proud to have Pye-Barker backing our team." 

"As a family-operated business for the last 64 years, IFSE reflects Pye-Barker's own beginnings as a business built on hard work and reliable service," said Bart Proctor, Pye-Barker's CEO. 

IFSE will continue to be operated by Lee Langston and Kyle Ware with additional resources and support from Pye-Barker Fire & Safety. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed. 

Earlier in September, the company announced the acquisitions of Briscoe Protective in New York andMiddletown, Conn.-based Integrated Security Group (ISG).
