Production Resource Group, LLC (PRG) has purchased Hi-Tech Rentals, Inc. Headquartered in Atlanta, with additional facilities in Orlando and Las Vegas, Hi-Tech supplies audio, video, lighting, and related services for trade shows, corporate meetings, and other events. “Hi-Tech has built an outstanding reputation, a solid inventory and a strong customer base in these growing market segments,” says PRG’s chairman and CEO Jere Harris. “They will be an excellent fit with our other capabilities and markets, and we expect them to be an important part of our company going forward.”
“PRG is the gold standard in the entertainment technology industry and we are excited about helping the company expand its presence throughout those markets where Hi-Tech is well-known and respected,” says Al Dyess, president, Hi-Tech. “Hi-Tech has built a solid reputation for outstanding service and innovative solutions for our customers over the last 20 years. The marriage of PRG and Hi-Tech will only serve to enhance that experience for our current customer base as well as those customers we hope to work with in the future,” he adds. Dyess will continue to oversee the Hi-Tech operations.
Hi-Tech will continue to operate out of its Atlanta office and warehouse, which will become a key depot for PRG’s products and services. “The Hi-Tech team is very excited about this transaction,” observes Dyess. “We are all very aware of PRG's market-leading positions in a variety of entertainment categories and it’s clear to us that PRG values their people and understands that while the technology is a "must have,” the people ultimately make the difference. “
