Heather Johnson, co-owner of American Tool & Party Rental in Kokomo, says she has enjoyed working in the rental industry.

Johnson and his brothers grew up around the rental business their parents started in Logansport on East Market Street. The siblings now own this business and the Kokomo company.

Stores have become a key part of Johnsons life, and she says both businesses have a steady stream of regular and loyal customers. American Tool & Party Rental officially started in 1990.

Johnson believes that companies’ success is due to three reasons.

ThisWe have succeeded through hard work, dedicated employees and great customers,” says Johnson.

Long-time customers also know that the company will have what they are looking for. Johnson says many contractors have been happy to find the tools they need for their various construction and home repair businesses.

Our tool rental business offers a wide range of rental equipment,” says Johnson.

This includes air compressors, air tools, backhoes and attachments, compaction equipment, carpet tools, concrete equipment, fans and blowers, floor grinders and polishers.

We also have forklifts, generators, heaters, lawn and garden equipment, mini diggers and attachments, plumbing supplies, power tools, pressure washers, tractors and attachments , trailers, welders and generators, and many other items,” she says.

The party rental part of the business has also been very successful.

We have moonwalks, risers, tents, sheets and china,” says Johnson. We also have equipment for indoor and outdoor functions. We also rent carnival games, popcorn machines, tables, arches, chairs and tablecloths. We offer several different party rental supplies including audiovisual equipment, bar and beverage, candelabra, carnival equipment, casino equipment, cutlery, glassware, display equipment, games interactive and obstacle courses. We also have staging, serving, and several different event elements.

Johnson notes that seasons play a major role in what customers are looking for.

When the ground is not frozen and the weather is good, it opens the door to work and the outdoors,” says Johnson. “We don’t rent out a lot of moonwalks for outdoor use in the winter.”

Johnson adds that customers have enjoyed browsing through the many options they have for party tools and gear. They also like having the ability to order supplies ahead of time to prepare for parties and events ahead of time.

Our tool rental and party divisions accept reservations, and our website is very convenient,” says Johnson.

Johnson says she is regularly inspired by the people of Kokomo.

I love Kokomo and the surrounding communities,” says Johnson. ThisIt is an ideal place to work and live.
