Our Team

FLEXX Productions, Fort Collins leading event experts, was created in 2003. PHILIP Gottula and his previous business partner started FLEXX in a garage to bring what was missing in the event rental industry - customer service! And oh my, has the company grown. For nearly 20 years, FLEXX Productions has overseen thousands of events with high-quality event rental products and an unsurpassed commitment to customer service.

Everyone is welcome — as an inclusive workplace, our employees are comfortable bringing their authentic whole selves to work. Be you! We acknowledge we have a lot of growth to do in the realm of diversity; we strive every day to ensure that those who join our team with diverse perspectives are welcomed and respected.
