Our History

SmartSource® Computer & Audio Visual Rentals is largest national provider of technology solutions for the events industry and general business rentals.

SmartSource is headquartered in Hauppauge, New York, and is privately owned and operated.  SmartSource employs nearly 400 people nationwide, including over 250+ trained Technicians and National Project Managers.  SmartSource is well positioned to serve clients with events and projects in various metropolitan areas through one of our 22 company-owned, fully-staffed offices and warehouses in cities across the United States.

SmartSource was founded as Rent-A-PC by Julian Sandler in 1984. At that time, Rent-A-PC worked primarily with corporate accounts on the East Coast. In 2007, Kirtland Capital Partners, a private equity firm located in Cleveland, Ohio, acquired a majority interest in the Company, which now does business as SmartSource Rentals. The strategic, operational, and financial resources provided by the Kirtland partnership further enhance the ability of SmartSource Rentals to invest in the business for further growth.

Over the past 30+ years, SmartSource has continued to grow both organically and through acquisition, gaining industry expertise and additional core competencies along the way.
