Pye-Barker Fire & Safety have announced it has acquired Nardini Fire Equipment Company , an innovative fire protection company headquartered in Saint Paul, Minnesota and Fargo, North Dakota.

With this acquisition, the company further strengthens its presence in the Midwest while expanding its national footprint by adding services in five new states: Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin, and Iowa.

Founded in 1949 by Ralph Nardini Jr., Nardini Fire is a family business that provides the Midwest—and beyond—with solutions for fire protection, fire/gas detection, and Special Hazards fire suppression. Owner Tom Nardini shared the following about joining Pye-Barker Fire:

“The Nardini Fire family is honored to become part of such a prestigious fire protection operation with Pye-Barker Fire. Every Pye-Barker Fire representative we met, from the president to the field personnel, were extremely personable yet highly professional and very down to earth.

“Discussing business with the president was comparable to having a conversation with one of your buddies over a beer in the back yard. This attitude ran true with every member of their upper management and transition team.

“Their support of our employees and organization’s future success is very clear,” Tom continued. “The entire Nardini Fire team wants to thank Pye-Barker Fire for showing confidence that our employees and business align perfectly with their current and future plans for strategic growth.

“Nardini Fire is a long-standing, industry-leading fire protection business with a strong reputation that is highly respected from coast-to-coast,” said Bart Proctor, CEO of Pye-Barker Fire. “Their platform will provide a solid foundation for continued expansion throughout the Midwest”.
