    Mazzone & Associates (“Mazzone”) is pleased to announce that it acted as exclusive financial advisor to Rayven Inc. (“Rayven”), a developer and manufacturer of engineered packaging coatings, tapes, and release liners, on its sale to Duraco Specialty Tapes (“Duraco”), a leading provider of pressure-sensitive tapes, labels and coated films.

    Rayven, headquartered in St. Paul, Minnesota, offers custom developed, niche release liners, coated functional films, and pressure-sensitive adhesive tapes to a diverse portfolio of high-value end markets including flexible packaging, medical device, specialty building, and graphics.

    “We are excited to partner with the strong operational teams at Duraco and OpenGate, who share our culture and entrepreneurial values, as well as our drive to create and deliver innovative products for our customers,” said Rayven President Joe Heinemann, who will remain in that role. “Our thanks to the Mazzone team for guiding our family through this process.

    The combination of these acquisitions and organic investments have significantly advanced Duraco’s core capabilities across formulation, coating, converting and distribution. With these investments, the Company is now positioned as an integrated, turnkey solutions provider in its markets with technology, product portfolio and capacity to drive growth with existing and future customers.

    Ed Byczynski, Chief Executive Officer of Duraco, stated “The addition of Rayven builds on Duraco’s leadership position as a high-quality, custom manufacturer of coated flexible packaging film, niche release liners and specialty tapes in North America, and will expand Duraco’s developmental capabilities and add coating capacity to support the ongoing growth of the collective businesses.”

    “Rayven is the latest testament to our focus on add-on investments as an accelerator of growth,” said Andrew Nikou, OpenGate Capital’s Founder and CEO. “The combination of Rayven’s operational capabilities, along with Duraco’s strong operating expertise and its seasoned management team will drive continued commercial growth into new markets.”

    Mazzone & Associates advised a European rigid packaging client on its North American expansion

    Earlier this year Mazzone & Associates engaged with a European rigid packaging client that was seeking to expand its business in North America.  We are pleased to announce that we successfully identified the right partner and have negotiated the agreement for our client!

    During this process we canvassed a broad spectrum of potential targets and partners, borrowing on our experience and expertise in both packaging and plastic fabrication. Through our process, we narrowed down this broad universe to a few select candidates and within three months, the best single match for our client. While not historically engaged in the packaging market, the eventual target company was a perfect fit in many respects – it not only possessed the requisite excellent manufacturing skill set, but also shared our client’s entrepreneurial mindset and business culture. For the target, partnering with our client provided diversification of its served markets and a solid base of business focused on domestic production and sales.

As noted by PreZero’s press release, this transaction reflects “PreZero’s business goal to vertically integrate and deliver its closed loop solutions to support the circular economy.”

    Robert Bateman, retired CEO and co-founder of Roplast, reflected on the transaction: “We are quite satisfied with the result and Roplast’s new partnership with PreZero. In these uncertain times, the Mazzone team proved invaluable, providing guidance and driving the marketing process with domestic and international parties.
