Lightnin’ was founded in Atlanta in 1975 by Bill and JoAnne Lewis as a small truck rental company. We began to rent equipment to the motion picture industry in 1979. For more than 40 years, Lightnin has been a family owned and operated business with three different generations of the Lewis family. The business started with one truck after Bill Lewis retired from the U.S. Air Force. His fingerprints are still visible on the business with an attention to detail, flexibility, and the mindset to do “Whatever it Takes.” He’s since retired, but his son Gary, Gary’s wife Lori, and their sons Jason and Greg continue that legacy.
