DISC is a manufacturer of folding carton packaging, micro-fluted corrugated boxes and pressure sensitive labels that are used in the pharmaceutical, food and beverage, consumer products and health and beauty markets. The company is headquartered on Long Island in Hauppague, NY (www.discgraphics.com).Oliver Printing & Packaging is a manufacturer of marketing collateral, packaging and point-of-purchase displays used in the health and beauty, consumer goods, financial services, building products and specialty food and beverage end-markets. The company, led by CEO Dan Rodenbush, is headquartered near Cleveland in Twinsburg, OH (www.oliverprinting.com).

“The acquisition of DISC greatly strengthens our platform, bringing new markets, customers, capabilities and capacity,” said Mr. Rodenbush. “DISC is a highly complementary business with a similar customer-centric culture and market-leading production capabilities.” DISC will continue to operate from its current Hauppague, NY facility as part of the Oliver platform.
