Berkshire Hathaway buys AA Party Rentals

AA Party Rentals with locations in Mountlake Terrace and Tacoma was acquired by nationwide events company CORT in a deal anounced Thursday.

AA Party Rentals has been providing rental equipment and services in the greater Seattle and Tacoma markets for more than 40 years.

“We are very pleased that Nancy Shaw and Greg Helle, co-owners of AA Party Rentals, and the entire AA team are joining the CORT family,” said Mike Davis, group vice president of CORT Events, in a press release.

Although the company will continue to operate independently, the acquisition provides customers with a broader range of event and party rental products than they had before, including tents and canopies of all sizes, flooring, tables, chairs, china, specialty linens, a wide variety of tableware and more.

CORT is a Berkshire Hathaway company.
