Chantilly, Va. – August 17, 2023 – Pavion, a leading provider of integrated solutions for fire, safety, security and critical communications backed by Wind Point Partners (“Wind Point”), has acquired RFI Enterprises, Inc. (“RFI”).  The acquisition accelerates Pavion’s expansion in the western region of the U.S. and fortifies its position as a fire, security and critical communications market leader.  

RFI was founded in 1979 by Larry Reece and is headquartered in San Jose, Californina.

Today, RFI operates from offices in California, Nevada and Washington delivering design, installation and maintenance of integrated security and life safety solutions to healthcare, technology and higher education customers.  

“RFI is extremely well respected for setting the standard in the western U.S.,” said Pavion CEO Joe Oliveri.  “RFI will add significantly to our capabilities, and we could not be more excited to add RFI employees and customers to the Pavion family. Pavion customers can now leverage the deep capabilities of RFI across their fire and security platforms.”

The partnership allows us to enhance our capabilities across the U.S. and 22 countries while also ensuring we sustain service excellence for our customers, provide continued opportunities for our employees, and respect the RFI legacy built by the Reece family.”

“Combining the RFI team with our recently announced Reece Complete Security Solutions acquisition and the Pavion resources already supporting the western region makes Pavion the clear choice for enterprise customers seeking security, life safety and integration solutions and services,” noted Jim Muncey, Pavion Security Business Unit President. “We are very excited to welcome RFI employees to Pavion and look forward to Connecing and Protecting our customers in the region.”
