AlarmTech's team will be influential in retaining the personal service their customers have come to expect.

"At AlarmTech, we take great pride in providing a vital service that protects our neighbors and community," said Richard McCurdy, AlarmTech President.

We're able to offer enhanced safety services to care for our existing and new customers."

"Pye-Barker hit No. 8 on this year's SDM's Top 100 by investing in teams like that at AlarmTech, those who know their customer base and are trusted and well-respected," said Bart Proctor, CEO at Pye-Barker. "By joining with Pye-Barker, AlarmTech can provide customers with full fire-code compliance through our existing fire protection services in the Seattle metro, which will benefit AlarmTech's company growth, employee opportunities and customer satisfaction."
