SGA Production Services, a Dubin Clark portfolio company, announces the recapitalization of T&B Equipment
Founded in 1976 and headquartered in Ashland (Richmond), Virginia (with branch locations in Orlando, Florida and Phoenix, Arizona), T&B rents, delivers, assembles and dismantles temporary staging, flooring, seating and camera towers primarily for large outdoor events nationwide. T&B has a strong presence in the professional golf market and provides equipment for many of the major professional golf events in the United States, including the U.S. Open, the PGA Championship, and the Waste Management Phoenix Open. In addition to golf, T&B’s equipment is utilized in a variety of additional end markets, including auto racing, tennis, football, corporate events, festivals and live music events.
“Our mission is to deliver the highest level of product innovation, and the most experienced production teams supporting the indoor and outdoor seating and staging needs for corporate, sporting, and entertainment events from coast to coast,” said John Campanelli, CEO of SGA. “By integrating our resources we can provide our combined clientele with more inventory options, from more locations, and backed with more installation resources. The sky is the limit.”
“I am very proud of the growth and achievements of T&B over the past 40 years, and now look forward to this new opportunity for growth,” said Berk Ellis, President of T&B. “Our companies share a work ethic centered on excellence and customer service, and that is what made this the fit that it is. I am excited to work with John and the SGA team to bring new seating solutions to the market.”
“With the recapitalization of T&B, we believe that SGA Holdings is well on its way to provide the best equipment and service – nationwide,” said Brent Paris, Partner of Dubin Clark. “We have known Berk for more than eight years and have been impressed watching his company grow. We welcome him, his management team and employees to all of the resources we have to offer.”
