Tools & Production, Inc. (T&P), located in Temple City, CA, USA, reports the passing of its former owner, Bert Lamberti.
Lamberti was instrumental in directing the company’s growth from 1976 to 1986 when he sold the company to Mark Andy Inc. in a deal that represented a partnership of press and tooling manufacturers. He retired shortly afterwards. The current owner, his son Mike, regained ownership of T&P from Mark Andy in 1996, and still runs the company.
Bert Lamberti was a pioneer in the punching industry. He is survived by his wife, Joan, daughters Cathi and Lynda, and son Mike.
