History of Lasting Impressions Event Rental
Lasting Impressions Event & Party Rental, Inc. (LI) began business in 1991 with Joel Birch as sole shareholder.  In 1992, Karl Liesinger and Mark Buddlemeyer purchased 100% of LI's stock as equal shareholders.  J.P. Fritz was brought in as a financial advisor and interested investor.

In 1995, LI moved into a 12,000-square-foot warehouse in downtown Columbus.  LI continued its growth and purchased the rental inventory of KG Marx in May 1998, expanding to 24,000-square-feet.  At the
end of 1998, Fritz bought Liesinger's
interest and became the sole shareholder.

In 2000, LI moved to 1890 East Main Street.  The new facility allowed the company to grow exponentially in size and services.  During the 11 years LI operated from that location, the four-story, 40,000-square-foot building was transformed to make Lasting Impressions Event Rentals the most efficient event rental company in the area. 

In March of 2006, LI purchased the assets of ACME Events out of Cleveland and opened a new branch of service to the Cleveland area. On May 23, 2007, LI purchased the rental assets of AAA Rental & Sales. AAA Rental & Sales was an early innovator in the party rental industry. The purchase increases the depth of inventory and customer base.

In 2010, JP Fritz found a new building just north of Columbus which would be able to house the entire Columbus division, which was previously operating out of 3 seperate warehouses.  The new location on 7.5 acres had ample room for continued growth with warehouse space totalling over 75,000 sq ft.  The office space, previously exceeding 30,000 sq ft, provided ample ability to create an amazing 2 story showroom as well as tennant space on the lower floor.

With renovations being completed, LI moved into the new space in the Winter and Spring of 2011.  The new facility immediately offered better organization and exciting new processing equipment for ALL of LI's inventory, including linen, dishware and tents.  With seperate dock space for tents, deliveries and pick ups, and an entire room specifically to assist warehouse pick ups and returns, the daily operations at LI were immediately improved and now run flawlessly in sync.

Lasting Impressions Event Rental continues to purchase new and expand existing inventory in order to supply Central Ohio with the latest in industry trends and stay at the cutting edge of event design.
