FAIRFIELD, NJ...

Cortegra, a leader in packaging and labeling for pharmaceutical and related industries, announced today that it has purchased the assets of Capital Printing & Graphics of Fairfield, New Jersey. Capital has provided packaging for the generic pharmaceutical and neutraceutical markets for more than 20 years.

"We are pleased to increase Cortegra's market penetration in the generic and neutraceutical markets as well as provide additional capabilities to our customers through the purchase of Capital Printing's assets," said Cortegra's President, Victor L. Dixon, in making the announcement. "Capital's solid reputation in the industry makes it an excellent fit with Cortegra's service-oriented culture, history of product and service innovation and focus on quality."

The relocation of Capital Printing's assets to Cortegra's facility in Fairfield, New Jersey, will provide enhanced printing capabilities as well as additional inspection and material handling competencies. The equipment transition will be completed by January 2008.

Capital Printing's founder and owner, Vijay Patel, said, "Cortegra is a well-respected and growing packaging provider that can create additional value for customers through its larger product and service offering as well as its focus on quality and service." Cortegra's three facilities -- in Fairfield, New Jersey, Raleigh, North Carolina, and Evansville, Indiana -- are ISO9001 certified.

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed. The purchase is the third acquisition Cortegra has made in three years. It also opened a new manufacturing facility in Raleigh, North Carolina, in 2006.
