BECK is an umbrella brand with a strong technological brand portfolio
Why the new brand identity?
We decided for a rebranding to ensure that our new brand identity is reflective of our recent journey and developments and that a clearer and more visible visual identity will enable us to better communicate our mission, products and services beyond the usual. With the efforts that have been taken, we want to create a consistent family of brands that share a common design language.
When will you be using the new brand identity?
The launch of our new brand identity starts with the change of all our stationery materials on September 16th, 2019. From this point, we will then update all our other collateral and promotional materials including packaging over the next several months. In the meantime, there will be an overlap as we transition from our old brand identity to our new one.
What is your new umbrella brand name?
Our umbrella brand name will change from BECK Fastener Group to BECK.
Why did you change the umbrella brand name?
We changed our umbrella brand name for a range of reasons, the main one being to better reflect the range of products we provide. BECK provides much more than just fasteners. We also offer pneumatic tools and new fastening solutions beyond the usual. Besides, we want to keep on improving the services we offer to our customers by becoming more efficient and providing seamless experiences, so it is easier for customers to do business with us. In general, we do things in different ways in our different businesses. Having a single brand identity, makes it easier for us to communicate who we are and what we do and so we work together as a business more effectively for you.
Can I still use the wordmark – BECK Fastener Group?
There is no plan to change the legal name of BECK – Raimund Beck KG Wire- Staples-Company. However, in all our marketing and promotional materials, websites, and media relations materials, we will be calling ourselves from now on only BECK. The wordmark BECK Fastener Group should no longer be used.
Has BECK changed any of its other brand names?
The product brand names will not change, but in few cases be shortened. Below you will find a quick overview of our product brands.
Are you losing your brand colors?
No, of course not. Blue and grey will remain our major brand colors. We will just shift slightly to lighter and fresher shades.
How should I reference the company?
You will begin seeing the full roll-out of our new look. If you are producing materials referencing our name or logo, please use our new logos and branding. If you need anything or have any questions, please contact us at email@example.com
