Present built on the past
Hahn Event Rentals helped plan its first big events back in 2005, the year it joined Hahn Supply, Hahn Tool Repair and Hahn Rental Center in the Hahn business family, which remains a 100-percent family-owned operation as it moves into its fifth generation in the region.
Yes, we have a reputation for making weddings sparkle and birthday parties a blast, but we’re much more than chandeliers and bouncy castles. We’ve grown up with the region. We’re part of its fabric. And we’re dedicated to its future.
In 1898, 23-year-old Charles Hahn started Hahn Supply Company, a plumbing business in Lewiston. Over the next eight years the business and Charles’ family expanded with his marriage to Catherine Colliton, the birth of their daughter Catherine “Katie” Hahn, and the addition of wholesale/retail plumbing to the business.
Years of change, growth
By 1935, Hahn Supply Co. was operating out of several locations around Lewiston when Hahn sold the retail portion of the business and kept the wholesale side. In 1937, Charles Hahn died of a heart attack. In 1959, a new office and warehouse building was constructed at 2101 Main Street in Lewiston, which remains to this day as the corporate headquarters and main warehouse.
A family affair
In 1962, Catherine Hahn passed away, leaving the business to her daughter Katie, married to A. L. Alford. Shortly after, in 1964, Katie herself passed away, leaving her father’s company to her sons Charles and Albert L. Alford Jr. They incorporated the company as Hahn Supply, Inc. in 1972, and eight years later Albert purchased his family’s interest when Charles was killed in an auto accident.
The tool shop was added on in 1989 when Hahn Supply, Inc. purchased Wade Tool Center. South Center Rental was also acquired in 1989 and renamed Hahn Rental Center.
