success story

The Situation

In 2012, Georgia Gulf announced plans to merge with a division of PPG—creating a Fortune 500-sized company with over $5B in revenue. As a global leader in the chemicals industry, a new brand promise was required, along with a suitably unique name and identity to represent the persona of the business.

The Execution

RiechesBaird created the name 'Axiall,' based on a real word with a rich history in both chemistry and construction—two core elements of their business. Axiall represents a new kind of chemistry company; one that responsibly harnesses applied chemistry to solve common problems, improves everyday life and drives human progress—supported by a new vision based tag line, at the intersection of chemistry and progress. The new corporate identity was designed to reference the vertical integration of the business and the unique double 'll' symbolizes GGC and PPG coming together to form Axiall.

The Results

In 2013 Axiall became a NYSE public entity and its stock is trading at over 50% since the time of the merger announcement. The 6000+ employees have been integrated under a new brand promise and RiechesBaird continues to serve as the corporate brand advisor.
