In 2002, Greg MacLiver sought to make a difference after seeing issues in the steel industry.
He envisioned a ‘no-frills’ company with a culture unlike any other in the trade. A company built on a culture of respect, honesty, and hard work.
That’s when All Things Metal was born.
“There has never been a year that we did not learn. I was an ironworker that had this big idea to start a business and now look at it. I was totally in over my head, and I have been learning ever since. This year was no different. This was a tough year, but we learned from it, and we are set up better.”
All Things Metal has shown resiliency through it all. From the 2008 recession to the 2020 pandemic, we stood the test of time due to our iron-strong foundations of building relationships and sticking to our core values.
While Greg MacLiver would probably love to work here until the day he dies, it’s now time for him to enjoy his retirement and the life that he’s built for himself.
“This spring, I am going to give a shot at retiring. Actually, I am still trying to figure out what that means. I expect that it will be a different routine every day. However, I very much enjoy steel work. I like building things, and I have a shop at home so… likely I will be out in my shop doing what I have always done.”
Greg’s friends and family got the chance to send him off at a retirement party held right here at the ATM shop. Decorations were done by the one and only Tina MacLiver and the whole evening was spectacular.
While we’re sad to see Greg go, we know it won’t be the last time.
“I will not just disappear. When I leave my house, my truck will automatically just head for the shop.”
