About Us

On January 1, 1997, Affiliated Equipment opened their doors for business and presented their Commercial Television Production customers in Toronto an option that was designed as a complete production solution. The first itself became not just a day but a mission statement that would lead the way for Affiliated Equipment from its modest beginnings over a decade ago, well into the future. Of all the firsts that AE has achieved, there is one that stands above the rest and that is, for better or worse, to always be the equipment rental company that thought like a producer.
