Rentex, a company specializing in computer, display, projector, and other audio visual rentals, has announced the opening of a new location in the city of Irving, TX. The new facility features over 22,000 square feet of space, the largest of the company’s locations to date. Also announced by Rentex is the hiring of Charlie Terry, former logistical coordinator for contracting gear and services at Alford Media, as General Manager of the new facility.

The new space adds storage to the company’s already large network of warehouses, which together contain over 35,000 pieces of inventory available for rental across the country. A wide range of audio and video equipment is available for rent, and Rentex also offers computers, displays, presentation and office equipment, and projector rentals. The company’s inventory includes name-brand equipment from top manufacturers such as BARCO, Christie, Shure, Apple, Lenovo, Mackie, AJA, JBL, Sony, and Sharp just to name a few. As the company’s largest facility, even more inventory will be available to serve its over 12,000 customers.

“The new facility in Irving, TX is the ideal step in our continuing effort to expand our business to better serve our customers. It also helps the logistical needs of managing a large base of inventory that is continually expanding. Businesses across the country can now depend on us even more to help meet their equipment rental needs,” said Don Gaskill, VP of Operations at Rentex.

Along with the new Texas location, Rentex has also hired a new General Manager for the facility, Charlie Terry. Since 1994, Terry worked at Alford Media where, for the past 10 years, has been a logistical coordinator for stage, camera, teleprompter, and graphics equipment and operators. Terry was also involved in negotiating union labor contracts, and meeting the unique needs of corporate events by acquiring turnkey services like scaffolding erection to full scenic packages – from backline to DJ rig services. Prior to working at Alford, he was responsible for dispatching and sales at Gold Star Delivery’s San Antonio location, and also worked at that organization’s Austin office.

Jeff Shimelman, VP of Sales, said, “The additional warehouse space is a valuable asset for Rentex, as the increased capacity can only improve the quality of service our customers are used to. We can also count on Charlie Terry to head up the facility. With his experience, the company and its customers can expect operations to run smoothly and efficiently.”

“The growth of our company is dependent on the continued expansion of our capacity,” said Richard Flaherty, President of Rentex. “Our largest warehouse so far, the facility helps to fulfill our promise of providing high-quality, name-brand computer and audio visual equipment to anywhere in the United States within 24 hours.”

In addition to the new warehouse in Irving, TX, Rentex also maintains facilities in Boston, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Orlando, and Las Vegas. Computer rentals and laptop rentals are available in virtually any configuration from most major manufacturers. These, along with the audio visual rentals the company is known for, are delivered to most locations in the U.S. Customer service is available 24 hours a day, while maintenance and technical support are free for the duration of each rental. All of the company’s rental offerings can be viewed by downloading their .PDF quick reference rental guide at

Rentex is a Member of the Tech Army Organization, providing services to other member companies as well as the end user directly.

Rentex has been around for a long time. They know what they are doing and I am sure this is a well thought out plan, so I am sure business is doing very well for them.

And congrats indeed!
