|Barnes Group Inc. Unveils New Company Logo|
|BRISTOL, Conn., Jul 28, 2008 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Barnes Group Inc. (NYSE: B), a leading international aerospace and
industrial components manufacturer and full-service distribution
company, today unveiled a sweeping transformation of its corporate
identity. The new brand design reflects the Company's international
strength while spotlighting its manufacturing and distribution
"Our new logo reflects who we are, the diversity of markets we service, and the quality work that we do - key differentiators for us in the marketplace," said Greg Milzcik, President and CEO of Barnes Group Inc. "It also is a symbol of the transformation underway at Barnes Group as we continue to build on our reputation as The Critical Components People."
Barnes Group's strategic business philosophy seeks to continuously improve operations, embrace globalization, and enhance quality. All logos in the Barnes Group family will be changing as a result of this branding measure, including Barnes Aerospace, a leading provider of manufacturing solutions and comprehensive component overhaul and repair services for the world's major engine manufacturers, commercial airlines and the military, and Barnes Distribution, a full-service distributor of maintenance, repair, operating and production supplies.
In addition, the logos for the businesses of Barnes Industrial have been rebranded with the new corporate identity elements while maintaining their respective market brand identities, such as Heinz Hanggi based in Switzerland, Seeger-Orbis based in Germany, Stromsholmen based in Sweden and Associated Spring based in the United States. The new logo system backs Barnes Group's already recognized brand names with the strength of a strong, financially stable global enterprise - Barnes Group Inc.
Founded in 1857, Barnes Group started as a small Connecticut manufacturer, and has grown into a global manufacturing and distribution company with products and services that support a wide range of applications in transportation, communication, manufacturing and technology.
About the New Logo
-- The new logo uses a strong, yet vibrant, blue color with a contrasting gray to provide an industrial, steel-like quality, representing energy and control.
-- The dimensional sphere represents Barnes Group's international strength and symbolizes the comprehensive capabilities that Barnes Group's businesses provide to the worldwide market.
-- The metallic, dimensional "B" used in the logo sphere is fluid, yet solid and strong, and illustrates Barnes Group's ability to adapt and drive results on a global scale. "B" is also the Company's ticker symbol on the New York Stock Exchange.
A re-branding initiative will occur over the next year among all Barnes Group businesses with changes to building signage, packaging, customer bills, business cards, Internet sites and other Company materials.
