Previously served as SCA's director of personal hygiene products.

Tufco Technologies, a contract manufacturer of wet and dry wipes in the U.S., and a portfolio company of Griffin Holdings, announced that its board of directors have unanimously approved Larry Grabowy as president and CEO of Tufco effective June 9, 2014.

Grabowy brings more than 25 years of relevant industry experience to his new role. He recently served as the director of personal hygiene products at SCA where he headed their $1 billion away-from-home business. He previously served as the director of sales of national accounts for Georgia-Pacific as well as the vice president of sales and marketing for Alcan Packaging.

"I look forward to working with the company's dedicated employees to bring about improvements and efficiencies in manufacturing as well as to improve the customer experience as we migrate Tufco from a publicly traded company mentality to that of a privately owned, entrepreneurial, and nimble manufacturer," says Grabowy.
