Brian Larkin, President and CEO of Comar, reflects on the company’s journey, stating, “In all its iterations through all the years, Comar has continuously evolved and adapted to meet the changing needs of its clients, providing innovative design solutions and quality-driven manufacturing to drive progress and shape the future of packaging and medical solutions.”

“Our success today is a testament to the enduring values instilled in our organization, stemming from our rich family heritage and unwavering commitment to our long-standing healthcare clientele. From our beginnings as a family business to our current status as a premier global supplier, Comar’s journey reflects the resilience of our core values and the strength of our partnerships.” Added Comar Chairman, Mike Ruggieri.

As part of its anniversary celebration, Comar reaffirms its commitment to innovation, progress, and collaboration. “Together, we set progress in motion,” emphasizes Larkin. “As we look ahead to the next 75 years, we remain dedicated to driving innovation, exceeding expectations, and making a difference in the lives of our clients and the communities we serve.”
