NILES, Ill. — Greg Sullivan, chief executive officer of BBJ Rentals Inc., a provider of special event linen rental products and services, reports the company has acquired La Tavola Linen, an event linen rental company based in Napa, California.
“Unifying La Tavola’s well-respected brand with the dependability and depth of inventory BBJ Linen is known for, creates a unified organization with unmatched offerings,” says Sullivan. “We’re excited to bring these companies together and have high expectations as these two excellent teams merge and form the very best in the industry.”
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“By coming under the BBJ umbrella, we’ll be able to share our extensive collection more widely throughout the U.S. and beyond, showing the combined breadth and depth of this new entity,” says Carmel Drudy, La Tavola’s CEO. “Working together with BBJ will bring the best of both worlds to our respective client bases, combining the strong La Tavola brand integrity with BBJ Linen’s wide distribution model. This partnership surely is a win for the industry.”
JEGI, an independent investment bank for the global media, events and event services, information, marketing, software, and tech-enabled services sectors, was the exclusive financial advisor to La Tavola in this transaction.
