PRO EM National Event Services, recognized for its work with major national events such as Super Bowl LV, Coachella, The Grammys and The WM Phoenix Open, today announced the acquisition of Florida-based Kirby Rentals, LLC, one of the Southeast’s largest suppliers of tents and other event equipment. Along with its assets, PRO EM will retain the services of Kirby’s highly qualified executive team.
For PRO EM, the acquisition increases its diversity of assets and services, and enables the event leader, with existing facilities in Phoenix, Chicago, and Los Angeles, to expand its geographic footprint, and better serve its customer base in the southeast region. Founded in 1946, Kirby Rentals has earned a distinguished reputation as one of the Southeast region’s top event service providers.

But big picture, this gives PRO EM a complete national footprint as we execute events for the biggest brands in the world,” enthused Amir Glogau, Chairman & CEO, PRO EM National Event Services. “Last but certainly not least, this acquisition gives PRO EM an immediate infusion of highly qualified talent. Kirby’s team has been doing this very successfully, and for longer than almost anyone. We’re thrilled to welcome their team into the PRO EM family.”

We are very excited and confident that joining the PRO EM family will enhance our opportunities, achieve our goals, and take Kirby to the next level,” said Jeff Frame, President, Kirby Rentals.
