Decades of Experience

Our History


GM Associates, Inc. is founded by Melvyn and Nancy Nutter as their dream of starting a family business to pass on to their 5 daughters.


GM Associates moved from Alameda, CA to it's current location in Oakland, CA.


All 5 of the Nutter daughters; Terri, Lisa, Deborah, Karen, and Sue worked at GM at the same time.


Mel Nutter retires, and the 5 sisters follow in his footsteps and take over management of GM. The first 3rd generation Nutter family member begins working full time at GM.


Following a long process, GM Associates is certified as ISO 9001:2015 compliant.


GM Associates Inc. rebrands as GM Quartz.
