ESTABLISHED AFTER THE DEATH OF FILM

ProGear opened its doors in 2008 as Chicago’s only professional rental house that focused exclusively on rentals. “We wanted to create a boutique business that had rentals as its sole focus, so we could be as agile and helpful as possible for our customers and their needs,” said ProGear co-founder, Pete Biasotti. And now, more than fourteen years and 50,000 invoices later, that focus still stands strong.Mobile Death of Film
