Pye-Barker Fire & Safety Builds Momentum with Acquisition of DaBo Fire in Florida

Pye-Barker Fire & Safety – the largest fully integrated and full-service fire protection, life safety and security services provider in the United States – has acquired DaBo Fire Inspection & Service and DaBo Fire Protection, family-owned and operated fire sprinkler entities in St. Petersburg, Florida. Along with Pye-Barker’s robust fire protection, security and alarms presence in the Tampa Bay area, these additions will help Pye-Barker offer full fire code-compliant services to additional customers and will benefit existing customers in the region.

Founded in 1981, the DaBo companies are run today by two cousins, Darcie Salvant and Paul Varga, who along with their spouses have created a customer-first culture and a tight-knit team committed to quality workmanship. For commercial and industrial customers throughout Florida, DaBo inspects, tests, services and installs wet and dry systems, deluge systems, fire hydrants, pumps, backflows and standpipes. Paul Varga, President of DaBo Fire Inspection & Service, has been heavily involved in advancing the industry, previously serving on the Board of Directors of the American Fire Sprinkler Association’s Florida Chapter and leading training seminars throughout Florida.

“Pye-Barker has a stellar reputation in the industry, and we’re proud to be part of what they’re building,” said Darcie Salvant, President of DaBo Fire Protection. “Partnering with Pye-Barker will open new opportunities for our team members to grow and will broaden the services we offer to our loyal customers.”

“At Pye-Barker, what makes us different is the company culture we’ve created, and that makes us selective in those we choose to be part of the Pye-Barker family,” said Bart Proctor, Pye-Barker CEO. “The DaBo team has been successful while consistently living their values, and that’s the type of company we want onboard as we expand our customer base.”

The highly qualified DaBo team will continue to serve customers in Florida.
