CE Rental, Inc., a Dubin Clark portfolio company, announces the recapitalization of Liberty Party Rental

CE Rental (headquartered in Raleigh, NC) has completed its fourth acquisition since partnering with Dubin Clark, announcing the recapitalization of Liberty Party Rental (Nashville, TN).

As the market leader, Liberty is known for introducing innovative new rental products and offering an extensive inventory of china, tables, chairs, tents, linens, dance floors, bars, catering equipment, and much more.

“We are enthusiastic about the addition of Liberty Party Rental to the CE Rental family. Their growth over the past three plus decades can be directly attributed to an unwavering dedication to customer service and providing only the highest quality rental inventory to their loyal customer base,” said James Auerbach, Senior Vice President at CE Rental “Geographically, Liberty is the perfect complement to partner with our existing event rental locations in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia,” Auerbach added.

Bruce and Julie Hurst, owners of Liberty Party Rental, echoed the positive sentiment for the business. “The Liberty Party Rental team is excited to introduce and welcome the CE Rental family of companies to Nashville and Middle Tennessee. With Nashville’s explosive growth, especially in the hospitality industry, this strategic partnership will allow us to further expand our product offerings and inventory depth.” Both Bruce and Julie will remain involved in the management of the business in Nashville and beyond.

“The addition of Liberty Party Rental continues CE Rental’s growth throughout the Southeast. By expanding into Tennessee, the CE network of affiliated locations will have the increased capacity to service all customers and partners in the region,” said Brent Paris, Managing Partner at Dubin Clark.

“Our two companies share very similar philosophies and will continue to operate with the same commitment to clients and staff that we have always upheld. By joining CE Rental our team members’ opportunities for professional and personal development will also increase. We are excited about the dynamic growth that Liberty Party Rental will experience through this partnership,” Bruce and Julie Hurst added.
