Neles corporate identity reflects its vision and values

Metso Corporation’s press release on May 27, 2020 at 12:30 p.m. EEST

Neles, which is to become an independent listed company upon the partial demerger of Metso, is assuming a new corporate brand and visual identity. The new identity will be fully adopted at the completion of the transaction when Neles starts its independent business operations. The completion of the transaction is expected to take place on June 30, 2020.

Neles’ corporate logo – a bold Neles wordmark in the company’s signature blue – signifies a customer-focused, ambitious and forward-looking company with reliability as its key fundamental. The name of the new company – Neles Corporation – was announced in July 2019.

“Within the industry, the name Neles symbolizes high-quality products and expertise. This is a solid foundation to build on as we now start moving forward as an independent company globally,” says Olli Isotalo, President and CEO of the future Neles.

Neles’ customer promise is ‘Reinventing reliability’

Neles’ corporate identity illustrates the company’s vision and values. Neles is committed to providing market-leading expertise, products and services to create the most value to customers. At the very core of Neles’ existence is the company’s vision to become a leading diversified valve and valve automation company reinventing reliability in flow control.

“For our customers, reliability is everything – and reliability has always been at the core of the valves and technologies we make. But as businesses and requirements evolve and diversify, reliability must mean so much more. Therefore, our customer promise is ‘Reinventing reliability’. This means we’re serving our customers throughout their investment and operations life cycle and bringing certainty to things working at their best today and tomorrow.”

We have a culture that is driven by understanding our customers’ businesses and needs and getting things done. We focus on always striving for better results and sharing our knowledge as one strong global team. These are the core values we build on, and we are committed to the future success of Neles, its owners and customers,” Isotalo concludes.

In preparation for the partial demerger of Metso, the future Neles is gradually assuming its new identity. For a preview and more information, please visit Metso’s website.
