Propspeed Unveils New Brand Identity
Auckland, New Zealand – Propspeed, leading innovator of underwater foul-release coatings, announced today the launch of a significant rebranding campaign. The rebranding is an evolution of its 21-year strong brand presence and an elevation that aligns with its industry leading foul-release coatings. The extensive rebranding includes new logos; a modernized, information rich website; packaging, to enter the market in mid-2021; updates to social media platforms and collateral to better express the company’s business goals and passion.
Propspeed is a trusted and established brand that is recognized globally as the original and premium foul-release coating of propellers, running gear and any metal assets below the waterline. Its key advantage is that its performance is second-to-none and it is a non-toxic solution. It is a premium product offering and delivers not only the world’s best foul-release coating system, but insulation and protection from corrosion and electrolysis – protecting metal underwater assets and supporting the longevity of anodes. A key consideration is supporting healthy margins, creating valuable business in the channel, delivering industry-leading manufacturing support in the market and providing a technically superior product that just works.
The name Propspeed is a valuable part of the brand equity as it has become established as the industry benchmark in foul-release coatings. The brand uses a strong brand element endorsement model to leverage over 21-years of established brand equity and name recognition – this strategy supports the transfer of equity and recognition to all product lines through design cues and parent brand association. The design cues are based on elements found in the logo today, but with a modernized treatment to align with the new brand vision.
“Our brand is a reflection of our people, and no matter who you talk to in the company, you will see the passion for our products, industry, customers and the ocean,” said Chris Baird, CEO, Propspeed. “We updated the look and feel of our marketing assets to better portray this passion. Propspeed’s foul-release coating solutions keep underwater assets clean and free from growth. Our customers love spending time out on the water and our products help them do that.”
