Grip-Rite®Grip-Cap® Plastic Cap Nails to Turn Pink for

October, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Irving, TX (July 1, 2014) — PrimeSource® Building Products announced the company will partner with Susan G. Komen® in support of their efforts in the fight against breast cancer*. In honor of this partnership, Grip-Rite’s Grip-Cap® Plastic Cap Nails are turning pink – the international symbol of breast cancer awareness.

Founded in 1982, Susan G. Komen is a leading non-profit organization working to eliminate breast cancer through ground-breaking research, community health outreach, advocacy and social support programs.

“PrimeSource is honored to provide a donation to Susan G. Komen to help support a cause that touches so many lives in so many ways,” said Ken Fishbein, Co-CEO of PrimeSource Building Products, Inc., exclusive distributor of Grip-Rite products. “It’s a partnership that’s especially personal for us as my wife, Debbie, is a three-time cancer survivor.”

“I think it’s important to raise awareness in unlikely places and share our story to provide inspiration for other families who are currently being affected,” said Debbie Fishbein. “I would never have beat cancer three times unless I had my support system of friends and family. I wasn’t battling it alone.”

PrimeSource is taking orders now for Grip-Cap Pink Caps for September delivery in time for October, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. For more information call 800-676-7777.
