This will be a very important project moving forwards, where we investigate which options are available to achieve the best results for both our existing and new customers.
merged company get a new name?
As a natural consequence of the merger, we are assessing the different brand opportunities at hand: keeping the existing company names or create a new name. There are pros and cons to both. As we want to ensure that we go with what we believe serves the merged companies best, this is a highly important task for us, that we are currently investigating.
