The companies in the Feddersen Group introduced a new corporate design on 1 October 2022 – in time for the industry event K 2022.
The group’s product range extends from technical plastics, technical products, raw materials and raw polymers to specialty chemicals.
Why a new company design?
“The world is falling apart. On the one hand, climate change preoccupies politicians and individuals more than ever because it is becoming more and more noticeable and affects us all. In this way, society develops a new awareness of how to deal with environmentally harmful gases and substances in order to protect the planet and continue to preserve it for future generations. Structural changes are becoming more and more visible, and digitization offers new opportunities in various areas of work and life. In 1949, the year the company group was founded, Karl Detlef Feddersen faced the challenges of his time. In 2022, the group faces new questions that we will ask ourselves. We are introducing this new beginning with the new corporate design,” explains Sandra Dierks, Head of Communications & Public Relations at KD Feddersen Holding GmbH.
“The diamond, which has been used again and again in various representations in the decades since the company was founded, can already be found in KD Feddersen’s very first logo. Now these elements can be found in a dynamic form in the new logo. Part of this symbol, which has accompanied our group of companies for decades, precedes the respective company name. We are well prepared for the change and want to move forward on a forward-looking, digital path together with customers and principals,” adds Sandra Dierks.
