Pye-Barker Fire & Safety, the fully integrated fire protection, life safety and security services provider, has announced its acquisition of Shiver Security Systems, Inc., a security, monitoring and fire alarm company serving southwestern Ohio and northern Kentucky.

With this addition, Pye-Barker gains its 150th and 151st branches, its first in Ohio. These milestones reflect the company’s aggressive acquisition activity and geographic growth as it moves into its 34th state.

It follows the acquisition of Amherst Alarm, an industry-leading fire alarm, security and monitoring provider in Western New York, last week.

Shiver Security, dba Sonitrol of SW Ohio, is a provider of integrated security solutions, access control, CCTV, intrusion detection, fire detection and 24/7 monitoring. The company serves customers from two locations: Cincinnati and Dayton, Ohio.

Chip Shiver, Shiver Security Owner, commented: “I partnered with Pye-Barker because the organization shares similar culture, and will move our legacy forward, care for our current team and continue our growth. As I transition toward the next stage of my career, I feel confident with Pye-Barker’s guidance.”

Bart Proctor, Pye-Barker CEO, said: “Shiver Security is well-respected in the industry, and we’re honored to carry on the work of the Shiver family. Shiver Security will play an important role in Pye-Barker’s continued expansion in the Midwest and dominance within the U.S. market.”
