Amec Foster Wheeler
When two become one…
Mergers are never easy, and when two giants in the international engineering and construction industry came together – with the UK’s Amec acquiring the US-based Foster Wheeler – the challenges they faced were very big indeed. Read More…
The brand idea.
First came the brand idea: Connected Excellence. And, using that as a springboard, we went on to develop a powerful brand mark. The sense of movement created by our radial device suggests dynamism and growth, while the precision-interlocking of the segments reflects the company’s global expertise, and the integrated way in which it’s delivered.
Stacking the rather long name of the new business made it neater and easier to use. And our lower case logotype conveys a light, contemporary feel – as do the fresh, and distinctively non-macho colours. (You don’t see a lot of lime green and teal in the construction industry.)
A brand to bring people together
Another important component of the new identity was a dynamic and engaging visual language, springing directly from the brand mark.
Symbolic of the company’s project management expertise, the segments represent the bringing together of disparate elements, to create a harmonious whole. Used singly or in different overlapping combinations, depending on the application, they powerfully represent the merged company’s people and processes – in a way that has helped to give members of the team a sense of pride in and “ownership” of the new brand.
It’s still early days for Amec Foster Wheeler. But all the signs are that, across the company, the new brand has helped to generate a real Feelgood Factor, and a genuine belief that the two former rivals are stronger together.
“BrandCap and Neon have worked in partnership across a number of significant projects, from the global merger of two engineering companies in Amec Foster Wheeler to the rebrand of the largest private school network and of course BrandCap’s very own brand identity. Read More…
