Grafton Cosmetics celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2012. The privately held and family-owned private label company started out on Grafton Street in Brooklyn, NY, and today is headquartered in Boynton Beach, FL. What is the secret to Grafton's success? One important factor is the company's policy to cultivate long-term relationships with its clients, suppliers and employees.

"Being a family-run business, we care for everyone involved in making our company successful,” says CFO Steven Marcus. “We have clients, vendors and employees who have been with us for more than 30 years. I joined my father Ed Marcus in 1985 along with my wife Cheryl, and we were soon followed by my sister Beth and her husband Ron.”

“With more than 35 dedicated employees and reps across the country,” says Susan Carroll, VP of Sales, "we are just one big happy family!" (Carroll's husband Dave also joined the firm, in 2006!)

Even as they mark their milestone golden anniversary, the Grafton family has exciting plans for the future. Grafton is expanding domestically as well as globally and is constantly keeping up with the latest trends.

" 'From Logo to Launch,' that's our mantra," says Steve. "Our combination of dedicated and knowledgeable staff, coupled with innovative products, great service and experience, will certainly see us through the next 50 years. We work with our clients to develop their creativity and fulfill their dreams. After all,” he adds with a smile, "isn’t that what family is all about?"
