The Alleen Company, Cincinnati, Ohio, and Lasting Impressions Event Rentals, Columbus and Cleveland, Ohio, have merged under common ownership.
For 68 years, The Alleen Company has served the Cincinnati area as event rental and tenting professionals. The merger allows the company to offer a greater inventory of tenting, specialty linens, tabletop items, chair styles and many other unique items.
“I am thrilled with the opportunity this expansion brings to The Alleen Company in terms of greater offerings for our customers including the ability to add even more tenting options, the expanded career growth opportunities for our staff, and the support to continue as the industry leader in the Greater Cincinnati area,” said Barbara Scull, president of The Alleen Company. “Lasting Impressions has been sharing inventory between their Columbus and Cleveland locations for many years, and the addition of The Alleen Company is a perfect fit into their business model. It’s super exciting for our future that this new ownership brings a combination of almost 100 years of experience in the event rental world.”
JP Fritz, owner of Lasting Impressions (and now) The Alleen Company, said, “The Alleen Company is an established Cincinnati event rental company, and I am proud to have acquired their reputation for providing solid customer service with quality products.”
Marty Betagole, previous owner of The Alleen Company, added, “We are proud of The Alleen Company and excited for their potential as a member of the Lasting Impressions family.”
This merger increases The Alleen Company’s depth and ability to better service its large and complex events, which includes locations in Columbus and Cleveland, and expands its service area to all of Ohio and Northern Kentucky.
