The Graham Group (www.thegrahamgroup.com)
Since 1960, when Donald C. Graham opened a design-engineering firm in a farmhouse basement in central Pennsylvania, The Graham Group has undergone tremendous growth.
AN OPERATING HERTIAGE CENTERED ON INNOVATION: Central to Don Graham’s ownership philosophy is the conviction that manufacturing companies must continually sustain industry-leading engineering capabilities, value-added manufacturing expertise, and strong internal financial controls in order to succeed. Innovation is a vital component – through the development and commercialization of new manufacturing techniques and the use of advanced raw materials formulations.
Under Don Graham’s leadership, his companies have made several widely acclaimed technological advancements and have pioneered the commercialization of innovative manufacturing processes that have enhanced standards of living, improved environmental sustainability, and led to step changes in industrial efficiency. Examples include the development of one of the first technologies for manufacturing rigid plastic bottles in high volumes across many end market applications, the recycling and re-use of plastics, and the production of thermally insulated windows for energy conservation and sound mitigation.
SUSTAINABILITY – A FOCUS AND PRIORITY: Don Graham has held a longstanding commitment to enhancing environmental sustainability. This priority has been a key tenet of each operating business he has founded, as well as the charitable organizations that have received his financial support. Don Graham’s goal has been to develop sustainability leaders – both companies and individuals who embrace this mandate and possess the expertise to pioneer solutions to complex environmental problems.
The Graham Group is an alliance of independently owned and operated industrial and investment management businesses that share in the common legacy of entrepreneur Don Graham’s industrial success. Don Graham’s three legacy industrial businesses: Graham Packaging, Graham Engineering, and Graham Architectural all grew out of the farmhouse basement business and today collectively operate in more than 90 locations worldwide.
