One Year Update on Peachtree Merger
A note from Mike Schmidt, EventWorks Co-Founder
One year ago, EventWorks merged with Peachtree Tents & Events, creating the largest event rental company in the Southeast. With this merger, we took a big step forward in growing our business and enhancing our client experience. We now proudly serve the entire Southeastern United States from six locations in Charleston, Myrtle Beach, Savannah, Atlanta, Birmingham and Nashville. This merger has allowed us to create more value for our clients by providing EventWorks with additional resources, reach, operational experience and product lines.
Now with an entire year under the Peachtree umbrella complete, I wanted to take the time to update you on the progress we’ve accomplished.
Since the merger, our increased product depth has allowed us to execute event orders in all three EventWorks markets that would not have been possible without the added inventory and resources. We have also standardized purchasing at all locations to build product lines that we can share throughout all of our markets. Most importantly, we have increased our commitment to regularly introducing new products and services for our clients. For example, out of demand, we’ve recently added large structure frame tents and flooring, and are sourcing new product lines to debut in the Fall.
We are also investing in additional resources for our two large design/build centers in Charleston and Nashville. These centers support all of our service locations, allowing us to add unique and one-of-a-kind rentals to our inventory and ensure that our products are made with the highest quality. It’s here that our popular custom wood products like bars, tables, and benches are constructed.
While we have grown our product catalogue and service regions, EventWorks continues its operations status quo - as has been standard in our more than eight years in business. We will add to our inventory and offerings via our Peachtree partnership, but all decision-making will remain at the local level, allowing us the flexibility to purchase what is required for our markets. Our merger adds resources for growth, stability, consistency and more capabilities, but our philosophy remains based on a “local presence with a regional reach”.
We have set the bar high and we will continue to do what is necessary to earn our clients’ trust. We exist to “create great experiences”, and our core values of taking pride, having heart, and giving thanks stay at the forefront of all of our decision-making. We are extremely grateful for our clients for all of your support in this journey.
If there’s ever anything we can do to make your experience with EventWorks better, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
P.S.: With the success of our operations in Savannah, we are in the process of building out a larger showroom and warehouse! Stay tuned for more details soon.← Back to Blog
