NEW YORK — The Komar Co. is getting into the growing tween category.

Komar, a 100-year-old business based here that markets and distributes women's lingerie, children's sleepwear and cosmetics, has acquired CC Girl Inc. A leading department store tween lingerie brand, CC Girl will operate as an independent company at Komar.

"This is a brand with a lot of growth potential in a growing tween market," said Charles E. Komar, president and chief executive officer of Komar Co. "We are going to support the CC Girl brand so that it can expand even further into new product categories."

Komar said he sees the CC Girl brand opening into a series of new products, including a denim line, which is already in development. Komar declined to give annual sales for the CC Girl brand, but industry sources said volume is close to $10 million.

Nancy Duncan will continue as president of CC Girl. She reports to Randy Severs, president of Komar's children's division.

Severs said the company sees strong "synergies between our current business and the CC Girl business."
