Affair Rentals, one of the leading full service event rental companies in southern Ontario has announced its acquisition of a $4 million, 40,000 square foot facility located in Mississauga. The new facility, which underwent comprehensive renovations, will provide a purpose-built state-of-the-art support centre for the company’s leading product offerings and will more than double its operational capacity, servicing the festival and special events market.

“Mississauga is currently one of the fastest growing cities in Canada and is one of the principal leaders in business development in the GTA. We are pleased to have found a location that enables us to stay within the city,” says company president Rick Lukasik. “Our commitment to expand in Mississauga stems from the geographic advantages of the location, with close proximity to provincial highways enabling us to effectively service both the 905 and 416 area codes. This, coupled with the competitive cost of real estate as compared to downtown Toronto led to our decision to focus on finding a suitable investment opportunity within this area.”

“The new facility has been designed to substantially enhance our operational abilities and permits us to grow our already deep and varied inventory of rental items to support the remarkable expansion of the
Festival and special events market in Southern Ontario,” says Chris MacLellan, managing director of Affair Rentals. “Clients in the Greater Toronto Area demand excellent service, immediate response and high-end rental equipment. We have a significant client base within the region and we believe our investment in this new facility underlines our ongoing commitment to provide superior clients services and maintain a competitive advantage in this industry.”
