Mahaffey USA, a leader of temporary and semi-permanent structures, has been acquired by Sunbelt Rentals. Terms of the deal were not released.
For nearly 100 years, Mahaffey has been providing large-scale temporary fabric structures for businesses across the country, from temporary warehouses and aviation hangars to fire stations and blast-resistant structures.
“We are excited about this partnership that signals a big, bright future for Mahaffey USA,” said William Pretsch, chairman of the board for the family-owned company. “The large structures we’re famous for are the perfect complement to the broad lineup of products and specialty services Sunbelt Rentals provides.
Because the business is unlike anything else at Sunbelt, Mahaffey USA will retain its leadership team and Memphis, Tenn., support center. George Smith, president of Mahaffey USA, will remain with the company to ensure a smooth transition.
While Mahaffey USA is commercial- and industrial-focused, the consumer party- and event-focused Mahaffey Event and Tent Rentals LLC is not part of the transaction and will remain a stand-alone business serving the special events market in Memphis and the Mid-South.
