Woodside, California (November 9, 2022) – Salt Creek Capital is pleased to announce that its portfolio company, All Metals Industries, Inc. (“AMI”), a leading finisher and distribution of sheets, blanks, coils, plates, and bars of steel, aluminum, and other metals, has acquired Gerber Metal Supply Company (“Gerber”).

Ms. Heidi Paiva, CEO and Mr. Paul Koza, President of AMI, commented “AMI has a long and proven history of providing high quality steel products with timely delivery to its customers. Gerber is a natural addition for us, as we will now offer similar services to our customers across a broader geographic range.

Mr. Glenn Gerber and Mr. Charles Calabrese, two of the shareholders of Gerber, jointly commented “We have spent years thoughtfully building Gerber since its inception in 1963.
