Town & Country Event Rentals (T&C), Van Nuys, Calif., recently acquired Signature Party Rentals (Signature), Santa Ana, Calif. T&C is the portfolio company of Shadow Lake Partners (SLP). It was added to the SLP portfolio through a majority recapitalization in December of 2022 as a premier provider of event infrastructure and support services in Southern California.
Signature was founded in 1985 and is a provider of event design, equipment rental, installation, and other support services in Orange County and the desert cities around Palm Springs, Calif. Jason Davis, president of Signature, joined in 2011 and will continue to lead the company and its more than 200 employees along with all of the current senior management team. Davis will report directly to Tom Siciliano, CEO of Town & Country Event Rentals.
“In getting to know Jason and the incredible team at Signature, I’m impressed with the organization’s drive to success and look forward to working with them to support and further develop the Signature brand,” said Siciliano.
“It has been an incredible honor to be able to welcome the extremely talented and dedicated team of managers and employees at Signature into the group,” said Devaunt LeClaire, managing partner at SLP. “This acquisition meaningfully builds the platform’s ability to serve our customers and enables the team to further raise the bar of excellence across Southern California. We are also excited about planned investments to expand the team, provide growth opportunities for current employees, and acquire new equipment into inventory that will help our customers take their events to the next level in 2023,” LeClaire added.
“We are ecstatic to be joining forces with the Town and Country team,” said Davis. “We remain committed to exceeding the expectations of our customers and are excited to deploy new investments in equipment and other resources into the market.”
Former owners of Signature, Val Tamme and Randy Berg announced their retirement from the management of Signature following the closing of the acquisition. “There is no doubt that this combination of two outstanding companies will benefit customers and our dedicated employees as well,” said Berg. “SLP is the right partner for the new fresh dynamic to the Southern California event rental market.”
