Dr. Peter Mrosik explaining Kömmerling’s strategy for the future, said, “As a leading company, we want to be a role model for sustainability. We therefore consistently rely on circular economy in all areas. This is exactly what our new brand and logo reflects. What we do today protects the world of tomorrow’s generations.”

The new slogan is the thematic and emotional framework for the new appearance. In just three words, it sums up the brand message and direction that Kömmerling stands for: Today for Tomorrow, which becomes the central brand core, and is reflected in all products, images, and social media communication.

The new logo is the clearest visible sign of this realignment; it displays natural elements like the sun and water in abstract form and embodies circularity. Warm colors represent life, awakening, and the future. These elements also characterize the revolutionary corporate design which include a new image and color scheme and a design with curved lines.
