elero – the long-standing company from Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany – has a new logo. The colour orange has now been superseded by blue, and the addition “a Nice company” has been replaced with “Sun Shading Solutions Nice”. In this manner elero is making its strategic reorientation much more visible, says Inge Rappold, Head of Marketing: “Demand for modern sun shading solutions has grown continuously in recent years. This development has led to us bundling our strengths with our parent company Nice to a greater extent over the years, and within the Nice group we have become the specialist for sun shading. We therefore offer products and solutions from both brands: elero and Nice. And it is this promise which we have now integrated into our new logo.”
Quality and innovation
elero is thus officially what the company has represented for some time now: the “Sun Shading Solutions” address within the Nice Group. The new colour and the addition indicate two things therefore: the experience of elero as a long-standing German company and the strength of the global player Nice. “We continue to stand for innovation and quality ‘Made in Germany’, and as to date we attach great significance to collaboration with the specialist trade on the basis of partnership. At the same time this bundling of know-how drives product innovations, as illustrated by the example of Yubii Home,” says Inge Rappold. The new smart home system Yubii is a complete solution for trade partners and goes far beyond the simple automation of sun shading. The gateway is compatible with many products from elero and Nice – and also with more than 3000 devices from other brands. This gives the specialist trade more options, allowing them to offer their customers an integrated, individual solution from one source.
The changeover of all materials will be conducted gradually by elero, also for sustainability reasons, as Inge Rappold explains: “We will use all the existing stationery and promotional literature until these have been depleted as sustainability is one of the declared objectives of Nice, and naturally it is also dear to our hearts.” The new complete catalogue has already been produced in the new design and the web presence also updated. In the middle of the year elero will be making available a modular point of sales solution in the new design for its partners.
Strong presence for the entire group
For Juan Pablo Boz, Chief Marketing Officer at Nice, the new branding was also an important step for the entire group: “With the new branding Nice is underlining the changes of recent years. The company was founded nearly 30 years ago and ever since it has grown considerably, both in terms of geography and its product range. So as to ensure clear recognition and a uniform appearance we have overhauled our branding and are pleased that our strengths are now also reflected in the logos of our subsidiaries.”
