Pye-Barker Fire & Safety has acquired Bevan Security Systems, a provider of comprehensive security and alarm services for commercial and residential customers in New Jersey.

The transaction strengthens Pye-Barker’s alarm division and enhances its services offered in New Jersey. Through multiple acquisitions in recent months, Pye-Barker has become the leading fire and life safety company in the Northeastern United States, according to an announcement.

Bevan Security is headquartered in Delran, N.J., and specializes in intrusion and fire alarm systems, access control, central station monitoring, video surveillance systems and 24-hour emergency service. Founded in 1986 by Randall Bevan, the company grew from a small business in a home office to a market leader that acquired and integrated seven additional alarm companies.

Bevan is committed to continuous improvement and ongoing advancement and demonstrates this focus through its formalized employee training programs and its exceptional service to customers, the announcement stated.

“One of the core tenants at Bevan Security Systems is the continual improvement to ensure our customers get the best service,” said Bevan, who serves as the company’ president. “With Pye-Barker’s guidance, we have additional opportunities to serve our community and our employees with excellence.”

“Like Pye-Barker, Bevan Security was built on entrepreneurial spirit and growth, while maintaining the values of a family-owned business,” said Bart Proctor, CEO of Pye-Barker. “We are proud of Pye-Barker’s strong acquisition strategy and our ability to attract companies like Bevan that align with our culture of commitment to quality work and investment in team members.”

Bevan Security will continue to go to market under its legacy brand.

Pye-Barker Fire & Safety also recently acquired New Jersey-based Reliable Alarms Systems, which specializes in fire alarm, access control and security systems for commercial and residential properties. Both transactions were coordinated by Philip Gardner, president of B Safe, which merged with Pye-Barker Fire & Safety in 2022.
