CHICAGO – February 27, 2012 – Partytime Productions, Inc. announced today that it has acquired certain assets of HDO Productions. Since 1962, HDO Productions has set the standard for excellence within the tent rental industry in serving the high-end corporate, social and special events industry.
“After months of discussion, I am pleased to announce this strategic addition,” said Jim Gallagher, Partytime Productions Chief Executive Officer and the Company’s founder. “Partytime & HDO are similar in many ways and by combining the two organizations we now become a leading provider to the special events industry. The synergies & opportunities are tremendous as we now have over 76 years of collective experience, a best-in-class professional staff and an arsenal of top quality inventory. One thing remains constant, our commitment to complete customer service & satisfaction.”
“This is the perfect fit for all of us at HDO,” said industry leader Dennis Coppi. “We now have the ability to grow our footprint by combining inventories & event expertise. Our success couldn’t have been made possible without the leadership of Bob Fitzgerald. As he is now retiring, we are all grateful & indebted for his contributions over the past years. He is an industry icon who’s guidance will truly be missed and we all wish him many years of happiness.”
The companies will consolidate operations over the next few months, but in the interim will operate from dual locations. For more information, contact us at 630-261-1900 ( www.partytimeproductions.com ) or 847-564-1700 ( www.hdotents.com ).
