    POSTED August 27, 2017

Mahaffey Fabric Structures has bought more than $24.2 million from Classic Party Rentals, including structure frames, tents, fabric pieces, and specialty structures. This purchase allows Mahaffey, already the leading provider of temporary turnkey structures and shelter solutions in the U.S., to expand their network of products and personnel in order to provide for corporate events, sporting events, festivals large-scale activations, film productions, and other special events nationwide.

This purchase has also added Shelter Tents, Arcum structures, AcadaSpan Tents, Aztec Tents (Maxibeam, Minibeam, Midibeam, Tectrac LK and Tectrac SK), and has increased its inventory of double decker structures. Mahaffey's offerings include tents and structures that range from 10 to 150 feet wide, with unlimited lengths and accessories from lighting, doors, racks, and HVAC. Mahaffey is open to subleasing or selling surplus inventory, or can provide a business with a product line for different amounts of time. Interested parties should contact Trip Gintz or George Smith at inventory@mahaffeyusa.com.

“With the addition of more than 3.1 million square feet of tent and structure inventory, this acquisition will be an industry game-changer,” says George Smith, executive vice president at Mahaffey Fabric Structures. “It is a unique opportunity, not only to purchase high-end assets that rarely become available, but also to expand our coverage of the special events industry – both for rentals and sub-leasing. This acquisition is a great example of how Mahaffey has continued to grow and innovate throughout our more than 90 years in business.”

The Texas Restaurant Association (TRA) led a coalition of business groups and their communities to drive support to the industry, for SB 8, the federal pandemic relief bill that included $180 million for local hospitality and tourism businesses.
