PGI launched its new brand identity, symbolizing its commitment to achieving leadership in innovation, customer satisfaction, operational excellence and global manufacturing.
 
"Our new logo and brand identity shows the transformation that has been underway at PGI for some time now to make us a more market-driven, customer-focused company that is dedicated to helping our customers succeed in their markets," said Veronica Hagen, chief executive officer. "This new look speaks to the values that PGI has been known for in the industry throughout our history, while also representing our new strategic direction."
 
The new logo signifies the ways in which PGI delivers the greatest value to customers, enabling them to win in their markets, with each colored dot representing a different core strength: global capabilities (blue), operational excellence (yellow), innovative solutions (orange), and customer satisfaction (green). The company also is rebranding itself as PGI.

"PGI is a growing company that is very much focused on our customers and establishing leadership in the medical, hygiene, industrial and wipes markets."
