PBFS Enters Miami with Sea Coast Fire Acquisition

Pye-Barker is proud to announce the acquisition of Sea Coast Fire, Inc. in Miami, FL. With this addition, we establish a new branch in this thriving market and expand our marine suppression capabilities in South Florida.

L-R: PBFS Regional Manager Brian Lumsden, Director of Operations Joseph Hightower, Owners David Byerly and Paul Barry, PBFS CFO Jason Brinkman

Owners Paul Barry and David Byerly started in the fire protection industry in the early 80’s. The Miami natives became familiar with their area’s unique fire safety demands as they learned the industry. This inspired them to start their own company in 2002 to fill the need for better marine fire suppression solutions. Through unmatched customer service and expertise, Sea Coast Fire established customers worldwide and set the standard for marine fire protection in their market. They are the primary fire protection provider for the booming boat and yacht industry in Miami and service customers from the Key West to Tallahassee, Fort Lauderdale to Tampa and the Caribbean.

Sea Coast Fire set themselves apart by focusing on the education of their employees and customers. By teaching the importance of fire protection, both their employees and their customers came to understand that fire safety is a priority, not a luxury, and should be treated with care and professionalism. We are excited to welcome both their team of specialized professionals and their educated, widespread customer base to the Pye-Barker family. Paul and David will be staying on in a managerial capacity and their knowledge of the area and industry will be a great help as we settle into this new territory.

Welcome to the team, Sea Coast Fire! We are proud to continue your stellar service!
