Starline Group Inc. has announced its acquisition of United Star Suites (USS) to meet increasing trailer and truck rental demand from the film and television industries as more studio space opens in the Greater Toronto Area. Starline says the acquisition of USS enables it to meet the industry’s expanding needs as it grows its current base in Ontario and Manitoba, “while looking at further expansion opportunities in new geographies and verticals across Canada.” Scott Turner will continue on as Starline President with USS co-founders Tony Bifano becoming Head of Operations and Al Paldino, Head of Sales. Starline has also welcomed Celina Capital as its new equity partner.
