Over half a century ago, industrial entrepreneur Donald C. Graham founded a design engineering firm in a farmhouse basement in central Pennsylvania. From this emerged several leading, global manufacturing businesses spanning packaging, capital equipment and building products industries. As of year-end 2011, the legacy operating businesses that share the Graham heritage collectively operated in more than 90 locations worldwide and generated approximately $3.5 billion in annual revenues. In more recent years, this alliance has grown to include several substantial, independent investment management businesses also holding the common Graham legacy. Based in York, PA, a tenured team of operating and investment professionals actively oversee several of the legacy operating businesses that bear the Graham name, as well as an investment management business managing assets exceeding $1.25 billion.
