Gunner buys Birns & Sawyer

Facility keeping its banner

Gunner Camera & Lighting on Tuesday reached an agreement to purchase Hollywood-based Birns & Sawyer, a privately owned equipment rental and sales facility for over 35 years.

The North Hollywood-based company declined to disclose financial terms of the deal, but said Birns & Sawyer will continue to operate independently under its own banner.

The move will increase Birns & Sawyer’s inventory of high-end camera, lighting and grip equipment, along with accessories for its rental and sales services.

Marvin Stern, owner and one of the original founders of Birns & Sawyer, will retire.

Mark Schweikart will serve as the firm’s senior rental agent, while Peter Anway and Marianne Exbrayat will continue their work in expanding the line of retail sales products.
