Control Techniques has unveiled the evolution of its brand identity as it begins a new chapter as part of the Nidec group of companies.
The new visual identity, including a new company logo, is a clean, modern update drawing on Control Techniques’ rich heritage in industrial automation. It will be phased in on products, communications and experiences from today.
Gareth Jones, VP of Strategic Marketing for Control Techniques, said: “Our new visual identity marks a significant milestone in the history of Control Techniques, aligning perfectly with the ambition of Nidec, our new parent company. We have reverted back to the classic Control Techniques green, and the refreshed logo and associated assets signal our intention as a modern, forward thinking company. Control Techniques is at the start of an exciting new journey, and our new identity means we are starting on the front foot.”
Nidec was established in Kyoto, Japan in 1973 by its Chairman, President and CEO Shigenobu Nagamori.
