Our History

1979→

The Bibbo Family purchased a Taylor Rental franchise with a 4,800 sq. ft. facility located on Brookpark Road in Parma, OH, which opened on July 26, 1979. The company rented everything from power tools and equipment to cribs and exercise bikes.

1992→

The “Party Plus” designation was introduced to highlight the Taylor Rental franchise for having event rentals in the inventory. Around this time, the company’s focus shifted predominately to event rentals.

 

1997→

The company was rebranded as two: Event Source and Equip Source. The new branding allowed the company to focus more diligently on high-end quality rentals and positioned the company as a single complete source for rental needs. With the wild success of our Event Source brand, the company divested the Equip Source division which became Ohio’s first United Rental location.

2001→

A 75,000 sq. ft. facility was built in Cleveland, Ohio, and opened on October 28, 2001, establishing Event Source as the largest rental firm in northeastern Ohio.

2008→

To better serve clientele in the Columbus, Ohio area, a 7,500 sq. ft. facility and showroom was opened in Lewis Center, Ohio on April 30, 2008.

2015→

A 7,400 sq. ft. facility and design center was opened in Ferndale, MI to serve Detroit, Michigan area clientele on October 28, 2015. The Detroit design center set new standards for all future showrooms.

2017→

Event Source acquired Panache Party Rental, adding Florida as a new hub for our hub-and-spoke model. With the national reach, Event Source provides exceptional product and customer services to a variety of markets. The two additional showrooms brought the company total up to five. 

 

2018→

After several years of serving the Pittsburgh and northern West Virginia market, a sixth design center in the up-and-coming Bloomfield district of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, opened on January 9, 2018. 

2018→

A ribbon cutting and grand reopening celebration on April 18, 2018, formally dedicated an expansion that doubled the Event Source headquarters to a total of 150,000 sq. ft. With the expansion came newly renovated administrative and transportation offices and a cutting-edge Design Center, and rebranded logos!

2019

Event Source celebrated 40 years as a leading voice in the industry.

John Bibbo was named the 57th president of the American Rental Association.
