In 1994, Elliot Zulver, a local business owner, purchased the Taylor Rental Co. located on York Rd. in Timonium, MD. Taylor Rental was a major supplier of rental items for the both the homeowner, contractor and party rental customer – renting everything from Bobcats to popcorn machines.
A few years later, Elliot decided to focus on the party rental business and sold off all of the construction equipment. The party rental and tent business expanded into three warehouses located near the main store. A second location was opened in Columbia, MD.
As the business continued to grow in both locations, it was necessary to move to larger quarters. The Timonium showroom and the three warehouses were combined into a 35,000 sq ft facility located at 1 Beaver court in Cockeysville, MD. The Columbia location expanded into a 5000 sq. ft showroom/warehouse at 6770 Oak Hall Lane, Columbia, MD. During these periods, the stores became known as Party Plus Rentals of Cockeysville and Party Plus Rentals of Columbia. (Please note – we are not associated with any other Party Plus Rentals locations).
All of this expansion has taken place with the help of four persons that have been here from the start. Gina Albers (28+ years) Office Manager, Sue Vance (28+ years) Sales Manager, Harry Largent (28+ years) Warehouse Manager, and Margie Pinelli (10+ years – now retired), Manager, Columbia location.
