Milwaukee, WI – November 2023.  Generation Growth Capital (GGC), a private equity firm specializing in lower middle market niche manufacturing and value-added distribution investments, is pleased to announce the successful acquisition of BP Metals, a leading metal fabrication company based in Isanti, Minnesota. This strategic acquisition underscores GGC's commitment to expanding its manufacturing portfolio and fostering growth within the industry. BP Metals is the second acquisition within GGC’s American Consolidated Metals platform, following the successful acquisition of Federal Tool & Engineering.

BP Metals has built a strong reputation as a trusted provider of high-quality sheet metal products. The company's commitment to investing in state-of-the-art metal fabrication equipment, and its track record of customer satisfaction, has earned it a dedicated customer base and a prominent presence in the region.
