The Science of Sound Part VII: Beating Flanking Paths
From today, Shaping your Experience, will serve as the company’s purpose and tagline. Hufcor’s new tagline aims to not only convey what our products do, but also emphasize our differentiating customer experience.
Kevin Flanagan, CEO and President of Hufcor says, “Since our company was founded in 1900, we’ve been pioneers in the flexible space industry—shaping what’s possible today in operable partitions and movable glass walls. We’re proud of who we are and the contributions we’ve made to the industry. The rebrand of our company reaffirms our commitment to our architectural and construction partners to help them shape the experience that individuals have within their space.”
Mike Kontranowski, Vice President of Marketing explains, “Shaping your Experience is a phrase with multiple meanings that not only explains what we do, but also our approach to business. In developing Hufcor’s new brand messaging we wanted to reinforce that Hufcor is more than just a manufacturer, we’re collaborative consultants that have more, do more and deliver more for our partners worldwide. This aspect of “more” is what shapes our customers’ experience and positions Hufcor as a flexible space partner that can reliably deliver exactly what’s needed.”
The new logo features two shapes coming together—symbolizing both the collaboration between Hufcor and our customers and the way the company’s products divide and bring together adjoining spaces. The new mark evokes strength, innovation and partnership and also introduces a striking new red and grey color palette that replaces Hufcor’s signature blue color.
A newly designed North American website is where the new brand comes to life. The new website also focuses on customer experience—giving users the ability to customize the navigation and website architecture to suit their needs and preferences. Video, case studies and downloadable specs and drawings are other key aspects of the website which is fully responsive for use across mobile devices. New websites for Hufcor’s international locations will be developed and launched in the coming year.
