A premier provider of stylish, quality furnishings and accessory rentals, American Furniture Rentals® is pleased to announce the expansion of its AFR Trade Show Furnishings division.

AFR Trade Show Furnishings brings together the considerable resources of AFR and AGILE Trade Show and Event Furnishings, which American Furniture Rentals – the parent company of AFR Event Furnishings® – acquired in 2013. By leveraging the synergies of the two industry leaders, AFR Trade Show Furnishings now offers a larger national presence and expanded service offerings to a broader customer base.

“The decision to acquire AGILE had major strategic implications for our customers,” commented Neil Scholnick, CEO, American Furniture Rentals. “With the addition of the AGILE assets and team, AFR now has a greater physical presence in the Midwest, New York and Las Vegas, which has dramatically increased product access and availability nationwide.  As always, our goal is to find ways to better serve our customers, and this acquisition helped us accomplish that.”

AFR Trade Show Furnishings is headed by industry veteran Jose Lopez. As Vice President, AFR Trade Show Furnishings, his wealth of experience and proven leadership abilities will accelerate the company’s growth plans.

“With a natural synergy across corporate strategy, culture and operations, the pairing of AGILE and AFR Event Furnishings has created a dynamic brand that offers great value to its clients,” according to Lopez. “Strategic priorities allowed AFR to realize a return on investment in a much quicker time frame than originally planned. We found the perfect equation with enhanced product lines, nationwide availability and responsive customer service that is the hallmark of both companies.”

American Furniture Rentals’ business philosophy of partnership, quality and service is the foundation of its longevity and success.  Today, that commitment runs even deeper with 17 full-service showrooms; expanded distribution centers; larger inventory; and a national team to provide unparalleled service from coast to coast.

As one of the country’s largest providers of residential, home staging, commercial, trade show and event furnishings, AFR has its finger on the pulse of the dynamic furniture industry. With this newly expanded division in place, AFR looks forward to providing more customers across the United States with distinctive furniture collections, quality products and a promise of service satisfaction.
