Pye-Barker Adds Gerry’s Fire in Saint Paul, MN to the Family

Pye-Barker Fire is proud to announce the acquisition of Gerry’s Fire & Safety, Inc., located in south Saint Paul, Minnesota. The purchase was finalized at the end of March and follows Pye-Barker Fire’s recent entrance into the area with the addition of Nardini Fire Equipment.

Gerry’s Fire was established in May 1990 when it was purchased by current owner, Gerry Rohr.  Rohr chose to enter the fire protection industry after working with a friend in the field.  He started as the company’s sole employee and added eight additional team members as his business grew.  He also expanded from only offering fire extinguisher service to becoming a comprehensive fire safety service provider.

The Gerry’s Fire team will merge with PBFS Saint Paul, formerly Nardini Fire Equipment, and continue to support their customers while expanding their service opportunities.

“It is great knowing that, through Pye-Barker Fire, my employees and customers will be left in the best of hands, with limitless growth potential,” shared Rohr.

Rohr will be retiring from fire protection to pursue other endeavors.  It is Pye-Barker Fire’s honor to carry on his legacy!
