Once one of the largest suppliers of rental equipment to concert promoters, theatre operators, and various production industry clients in Canada, Ashen White Audio Visual, based in Mississauga, Ontario has decided to close its doors after the Covid-19 pandemic devastated its business and the entire industry.

The owners were faced with a tough decision to either sell off what they spent the last three decades building or take on tremendous debt and risk trying to continue to ride out the storm.
