With our fire sprinkler expertise in many different industry sectors, and Pye-Barker’s experience with fire alarm and extinguishers, we know that joining forces is a perfect fit for both teams. Backed by Pye-Barker’s financial support, our acquisitive growth strategy fits well with the future vision of the platform. There are a tremendous number of synergies in this transaction that will be a huge win for everyone involved. Joining with an industry-leading fire protection team will help take RFPG to the next level.”
