“A date was set and a check was written, a celebration took place and a new chapter in the life of the UTFS began,” Josh said.Pye-Barker Fire is happy to have the Utah Fire Systems team joining our branches in Utah! Josh will remain on as Fire Alarm Division Manager and continue overseeing his team. We look forward to strengthening our presence south of the state’s capital.
Pye-Barker Fire is proud to announce the acquisition of Utah Fire Systems in Provo, Utah. Utah Fire Systems will merge into our existing branch in Provo and add a fire alarm division to our service offerings in that part of the state. Utah Fire was founded in January 2014 by Josh Hines. The business quickly grew and added technicians to meet the expanding customer base. They credit their customer loyalty to their policy of treating each customer like he or she is the most important one. After meeting some of his long-term personal and financial goals, Josh started to consider selling his business. While driving to meet with a customer, he saw a Pye-Barker van pass by: “I had an a-ha moment and made the call that shaped the rest of the future for Utah Fire Systems,” Josh shared. A week later, Josh met with Chuck Reimel, who Josh describes as “the best VP of Business Development in the United States.” From there an offer was made and accepted.
