“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.”
