The sale of CCW allows the second generation of the founder’s family to retire after a short transition period and assures the retention of CCW’s employees as Priority expects production of CCW’s products to continue in Colorado for many years to come. “This ownership change is a win all the way around – for my clients, the sellers, as well as the buyer, the employees and the customers. That makes for a very satisfying transaction,” said David Bench, a Capstone Managing Director and head of the firm’s packaging group.
