New logo, new visual identity to carry out VALCO GROUP ambitions

Ruffec, 2018, June 06 : With an international presence through its subsidiaries/JV (Algeria, South Africa, Australia, China) and in France by means of 4 production units (Ruffec, Bordeaux, Thiétreville and Chambéry) VALCO Group France is one of the world leaders in the field of multi-technologies industrial valves with the D2FC, Guichon, SNRI, Malbranque, VVS brands. It is specialized in the design, production and maintenance of industrial valves in the fields of oil & gas, energy, natural gas industry with some applications in LNG transport, nuclear, hydroelectricity, refineries, chemistry and petrochemicals, plastics, ….

Constituted in 2009 with SNRI, Malbranque and VVS companies, VALCO Group made the acquisition of Guichon Valves in 2015 (specialist in customized high-performance valves), then D2FC Energy Valves in 2017 (specialist in dam valves for hydroelectricity). As a result of these acquisitions, which enabled to raise the turnover to 50.8 M€ and teams to 380, VALCO Group decides today to make its graphic charter evolve and adopts a new logo as a clear expression of its ambitions.

« This new identity aims at creating a spirit of belonging shared between the different brands of the group, expressing our dynamism and who we are: a worldwide leading expert in valves solutions with a know-how recognized for more than 90 years », asserts Stéphane Galichet, CEO of the VALCO group.

A new logo which is reflecting the ambition and strength of the company, proud to design and manufacture resistant high range products, in a wide range of industrial valves as a result of the synergies and experience of each group entity. This precise and sober contemporary typography combines technological seriousness and professionalism of the products range, in the permanent quest for innovative support solutions.

The icon takes the brands’ color code over: blue is for industrial environment technical touch but also symbolically recalls the valves’ fluid control. Black color represents the company strength and capacity to create value and innovate.

This visual identity is upgraded with a signature reflecting VALCO commitment: « Leading expert in valves solutions » and the will to pursue its international expansion, closely with its customers.

In the same way, each company and brand within the group has upgraded its logo, allowing to disclose a distinct identity true to each history and origin while signifying their belonging to the Valco group.
