GRAHAM PARTNERS MEASURES UP

PHILADELPHIA, October 24, 2013 – Graham Partners is pleased to announce its acquisition of Comar, LLC (“Comar”), a market leading designer and manufacturer of innovative packaging solutions and liquid dispensing products.

“Graham Partners’ extensive history and expertise in the packaging industry makes it the ideal partner to help Comar continue its growth both domestically and abroad,” said Michael Ruggieri, CEO of Comar. “Graham Partners recognizes the value of Comar’s product development capabilities and ability to design and deliver the highest quality
products and customer service in a complex, ever-changing market,” Michael added.

“Comar’s 60-year track record of customer service excellence and advanced manufacturing capabilities, coupled with its leadership position in the oral syringe, printed dosage cup, and dropper markets, create strong opportunities for growth,” said Adam Piatkowski, Managing Principal at Graham Partners.

Graham Partners seeks to not only invest capital, but to utilize its longstanding industry knowledge, resources, and contacts to improve operations and promote growth for its portfolio companies.

communications devices, among others.
