Ocean State Innovations acquires local ColorWorks

Ocean State Innovations, (a Brand & Oppenheimer Company), a leading textile solutions provider based in Portsmouth, R.I., has  announced the acquisition of ColorWorks. Founded in 1996, ColorWorks is a premier textile dyer and finisher located in Elizabethton.

The ColorWorks team will continue to service a broad array of customers with their commission textile dyeing and finishing needs.

“We look forward to continuing our commitment to the ongoing operations at ColorWorks and the future innovation that the commission dyeing and finishing segment adds to Ocean State,” said Edward Ricci, Ocean State Innovations CEO.

“The resources of Ocean State Innovations will add a unique capability to source a wider array of textile products and to provide a technical knowledge that will help to better serve customers’ needs,” Ricci further stated.

Under the direction of Ricci, Ocean State has built an impressive organization of talented people and innovative products.

Sam Buchanan, President of ColorWorks said, “We are extremely excited to join the Ocean State Innovations team. OSI’s expertise will open markets and help lead ColorWorks into the future.”

Ocean State Innovation’s continued strategic growth has received enthusiastic support from Praesidian Capital, which initially invested both first lien debt and equity in B&O/Ocean State.

“We are very pleased with Ocean State’s growth trajectory and with management’s continued commitment to innovation, customer service, and high-quality textile products,” said Jason Drattell, the founding partner of Praesidian. “We anticipate continued growth and success as management executes on their strategic vision.”
