CE Rental, Inc., a Dubin Clark portfolio company, announces the recapitalization of Skyline Tent Company

CE Rental (headquartered in Raleigh, NC) has completed its third acquisition since partnering with Dubin Clark, announcing the recapitalization of Skyline Tent Company (Charlottesville, VA and Charleston, SC).

For the past fifteen years Skyline Tent Company has built an award-winning reputation as the leading provider for specialty tenting and large flooring projects throughout the Southeast and beyond. Skyline offers an extensive inventory of Navitrac, Century, and Losberger structures; Sailcloth tents, frame tents; custom lighting; and the largest inventory of Biljax TF2100 engineered flooring in the special events industry.

“The partnership between CE Rental and Skyline Tent Company greatly expands our strategy of being the premier full-service rental provider on the East Coast,” said James Auerbach, Senior Vice President at CE Rental. “We are excited to leverage the exclusive tabletop and tenting offerings of both CE Rental and Skyline in all of our existing markets and beyond,” Auerbach added.

“Joining Skyline Tent Company and CE Rental is a fantastic opportunity for both companies. Our new combined group will work together to elevate the quality of events in the markets we serve, and will allow us to offer all of our customers the very best combination of tents, tabletop rentals, and service across the Southeast,” said John Hingeley, President of Skyline Tent Company.

“Both CE Rental and Skyline are leaders in their respective markets. We are enthusiastic about the expanded growth opportunities by bringing together two of the premier tabletop and tenting providers in the industry,” said Brent Paris, Managing Partner at Dubin Clark.

Since being acquired by Dubin Clark & Company in February 2017, CE Rental expanded its geographic footprint and product offering through the acquisitions of Capital Party Rentals (Dulles, VA), Festive Fare Rentals (Charlottesville, VA) and former Classic Party Rentals locations in Raleigh and Charlotte, NC.
