Eric Garner — CEO of Mountain Alarm Fire & Security said: “The last few years I have paid close attention to Pye-Barker as they have acquired over 90 fire and life safety companies.

Almost immediately I realized that our vision for the industry, our company culture, and growth objectives were aligned.

“I knew partnering with Pye-Barker would allow us to continue to expand the business at a rapid pace, while providing limitless opportunity for our team.”

Mountain Alarm Fire & Security will continue to keep its name and will be led by Eric Garner, the current management team, and will retain its team members.
