In this paper we give an elementary proof of the unique, global-in-time solvability of the coagulation-(multiple) fragmentation equation with polynomially bounded fragmentation and particle production rates and a bounded coagulation rate. The proof relies on a new result concerning domain invariance for the fragmentation semigroup which is based on a simple monotonicity argument.
