Built on a Strong Foundation
Gatto Electric Supply was founded by Lou Gatto Sr. and Vince Gatto Sr. in the garage of the family home on East 149th Street. Their passion for the electrical industry and reputation of quality services fueled the success of their business. This success allowed for the opening of the Cleveland location in 1987. Always growing, Gatto expanded to their Portage location in 1993 to serve the counties of Portage, Summit, Trumbull, Columbiana, Mahoning and Geauga.
Throughout the years, Gatto has remained fully committed to the electrical industry. While the industry has grown and changed, Gatto still prides itself on the same knowledgeable service, honesty and integrity in the services and products they provide. They remain a leader in the electrical supply industry in Northeast Ohio.
Amp Electric purchases Gatto Electric Supply
Gatto Electric Supply of Cleveland was purchased by a Connecticut company, Amp Electric in 2015. The transaction was announced Thursday, Sept. 24, 2015 by Element Partners, an equity investment firm near Philadelphia that owns Amp Electric and has $1.25 billion in investments under its management.
According to a news release issued by Element Partners, the transaction is part of Amp’s strategy to “consolidate and build the premier electrical distribution company in Northeast Ohio and surrounding areas.” Amp also owns Cleveland-based Leff Electric, which like Gatto is a regional distribution company in the wholesale electrical supply industry. According to Element, portions of the two companies will be combined, but both brands will be retained.
“Under the new structure, Leff and Gatto will consolidate sourcing and back-office operations, but will continue to operate with distinct brands and sales,” Element stated. “Lou Gatto, one of the seven owners in the Gatto family, will continue to lead the (Gatto Electric) operation under the Gatto Electric Supply name.”
Leff, referred to by Electric Marketing magazine as “one of the electrical market’s best-known family businesses,” was acquired by Amp in 2013. It has eight branches in and around Cleveland and Akron.
