Pavion, a provider of integrated solutions for fire, safety, security and critical communications, has acquired RFI Enterprises, accelerating its expansion in the western region of the United States. 

RFI was founded in 1979 by Larry Reece and is headquartered in San Jose. In 2011, Dee Ann Harn assumed the CEO position and continued to grow RFI on the founders’ values of integrity, honesty and hard work, according to an announcement. RFI operates from offices in California, Nevada and Washington, delivering design, installation and maintenance of integrated security and life safety solutions to healthcare, technology and higher education customers. 

“RFI is extremely well known and respected for setting the standard in the western region for many years,” said Pavion CEO Joe Oliveri. “This is a very important development for Pavion and our industry at large. They add so much to our capabilities, and we could not be more excited to add RFI employees and customers to the Pavion family. Pavion customers can now leverage the deep capabilities of RFI across their Fire and Security platforms.”

RFI is the 19th acquisition for Pavion, formerly Corbett Technology Solutions (CTSI), since partnering with Wind Point Partners in 2020. The transaction follows Pavion’s recent purchase of REECE Complete Security Solutions, located in Portland, Ore. 

“At RFI, our people make the difference. We see the same culture and customer focus in Pavion DNA,” stated Harn. “We look forward to starting our 45th chapter with a new identity, enhancing our capabilities to deliver service across the U.S. and 22 countries, ensuring we sustain service excellence for our customers and continued opportunities for our employees, while respecting the RFI legacy built by the Reece family.” 

“Combining the RFI team with our recently announced Reece Complete Security Solutions acquisition and the Pavion resources already supporting the Western region, makes Pavion the clear choice for enterprise customers seeking security, life safety, and integration solutions and services,” said Jim Muncey, Pavion security business unit president. “We are very excited to welcome RFI employees to Pavion and look forward to Connecting and Protecting our customers in the region.” 

RFI placed no. 16 on the 2023 Top Systems Integrators rankings. Pavion placed no. 4. 

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
