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.

at the ribbon cutting ceremony for the grand opening of Affair Rentals’ new, $4 million, 40,000 square foot facility.
“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
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.”
