Brand Development Done Right Builds Equity in Corporate Name ITW Company Valeron Looked to Leading Naming Agency NameStormers for Vortec’s Winning Corporate Brand Strategy Austin, TX (PRWEB) April 6, 2010—Illinois Tool Works Inc. (NYSE: ITW) company, Valeron, collaborated with naming company NameStormers to successfully launch Vortec—a high-performance, moisture management film for industrial applications. As with all businesses, Valeron’s future growth depended on building a strong brand name. NameStormers was hired to apply best practices in comprehensive corporate branding strategies and develop a name for Valeron’s newest product. The naming company and Valeron incorporated the look and feel of the corporate name into the subsidiary brand, using a technique applied to other naming projects NameStormers has completed for national and international businesses alike—including several Fortune 500 companies. Valeron’s new brand name met the criteria to:

  • Support corporate brand positioning
  • Build equity in the corporate brand
  • Relate to the product’s function
  • Differentiate it from competing products

The winning name for Valeron’s newest product was Vortec because it related to water (a vortex), the unique spiral pattern embossed on the surface that facilitated water drainage, and the corporate parent brand.
