New home and new look for Wild & Marr
SOUTH AFRICA: Wild & Marr has simultaneously relocated its Johannesburg head office and unveiled a new corporate identity. The new Wild & Marr headquarters is situated in Isandovale, Edenvale in the Johannesburg area.
The move was prompted by MD Joe Copans who wanted to completely transform the existing layout of the newly acquired property into a ‘spacious and efficient’ headquarters and warehouse. ‘We are proud of the outcome,’ said Mr Copans. ‘Wild & Marr as a company is growing, so the move has come at the right time. We have space available for hosting training and product related events and the warehouse has a more functional layout for packing stock.’
To coincide with the move, Wild & Marr revealed a new logo and corporate identity. The new logo and corporate identity were created by a design and ideas agency, who wanted to illustrate the characteristics of the company.
‘The brand refresh is something that we have been contemplating for a while,’ said sales and marketing manager Andrew Sorrill. ‘The Wild & Marr brand is evolving as technologies and business strategies change. We believe that the brand is more than just a professional sound distributor; it’s a set of values and attributes. We wanted this refresh to reflect the spirit of our company. In the end it coincided with the move – so a new space and a brand new look.’
