This acquisition allows Pye-Barker, which has acquired businesses in Florida and throughout the US, to add security to its fire protection services in the central Florida market. In recent months, the company surpassed 150 branches nationwide.

“As a family-run company serving central Florida for over 40 years, The Hartline Company takes the job of protecting our neighbors and community members seriously,” said Alan Hartline, President and Founder of Hartline. “Pye-Barker holds those same values of commitment to customer care, and I am confident in their service to our communities through this partnership.”
“Pye-Barker is honored to carry on the legacy of the Hartline family and The Hartline Company’s unparalleled reputation for customer service,” said Bart Proctor, CEO of Pye-Barker. “This acquisition strengthens our full-service capabilities in central Florida and helps us grow our presence in the Southeast and throughout the US. We are always looking for companies just like Hartline that command their markets and align with Pye-Barker’s values.”
