Mahaffey is the nation’s leader of temporary and semi-permanent structures, providing solutions for the largest projects in the country, including base camps for the military, warehouses and storage for clients needing on-site space quickly, site covers for the construction industry and production space for manufacturers. Customers include FedEx, Fluor, the U.S. Army, BP, Exxon, Ford, Toyota, Nissan and Pfizer, the company said in a press release.
While Mahaffey USA is commercial- and industrial-focused, the consumer party- and event-focused Mahaffey Event and Tent Rentals is not part of the transaction and will remain a stand-alone business serving the special events market in Memphis and the Mid-South.
“We are excited about this partnership that signals a big, bright future for Mahaffey USA. The large structures we’re famous for are the perfect complement to the broad line-up of products and specialty services Sunbelt Rentals provides. Selecting the right buyer was an important part of the process for our family business. We have worked closely with Sunbelt over the years, and their reputation for doing what they say they are going to do went a long way in helping us make our decision,” William Pretsch, chairman of the board for the family-owned company said in a statement.
“This is a proud day for the employees of Mahaffey. Together we have built a business that attracted the attention of the country’s leading equipment rental company. Our associates at every level have contributed to this phenomenal success, and I am excited for them. This is a tremendous opportunity for our people and our company to continue the incredible growth we have experienced over the last decade,” Smith added.
