Brand launch positions Ingram Micro for the future
American broadliner Ingram Micro has launched a new company brand identity. This new, global brand has a bold, modern look and feel, signaling the company's leadership in technology and supply chain services. With recent investments in growth over the past couple of years, this new brand is part of creating a platform of new capabilities and services whereby Ingram Micro helps businesses fully realize the promise of technology. The bold new look incorporates a blue that is both eye-catching and pleasing, while the letters convey the strength and dependability of a true, world-class leader. The tilt of the G signals acceleration and agility, while its virtual absence reinforces transparency and the company's unique insights. Agility, insight and dependability, these are all qualities valued by Ingram Micro's partners.
