Pye-Barker, which placed ninth on the 2023 SDM 100 rankings, continues to execute on its aggressive acquisition strategy to build a national platform that is unparalleled in the industry. The company bills itself as the largest private full-service and fully integrated fire protection, life safety and security services provider in the United States.
