Metro Fire & Safety Joins the PBFS Team

Metro Fire & Safety

We are pleased to announce the newest addition to the Pye Barker Fire & Safety family, Metro Fire & Safety out of Durham, NC. Owner, Charles Sanford, is a retired Durham city fireman who decided to continue his service to the community by opening a fire protection company over 20 years ago. With a focus on training and educating, Metro Fire became one of the premier fire extinguisher and restaurant fire suppression system service companies in the Raleigh-Durham area. Charles has also been very instrumental in the creation of the NCAFED, the North Carolina Association of Fire Equipment Distributors, which was formed to provide a safe environment for the workers, citizens, and visitors of North Carolina. We are excited to say that Charles will be joining Pye Barker in the capacity of Corporate Safety Director.

Pye-Barker is a proud collection of small to moderate sized companies and has provided many owners with a satisfying exit strategy that provided peace of mind for themselves and their staff.  If you would like to speak to someone confidentially about the opportunities available for you and your business, please reach out to our Director of Business Development, Chuck Reimel, at 910-612-6252 or send a private email to  We look forward to hearing from you!
