AMVAC Chemical Corp.’s parent company, American Vanguard Corp., is marking 50 years in business with a new look. The company launched new brand logos for both corporations and added the tagline “An American Vanguard Company” to all operating subsidiaries.
“This is a milestone that wouldn’t be possible without our loyal customers, employees and investors who have made 50 successful years possible,” says Neil DeStefano, director of portfolio and marketing/ecommunication management at AMVAC. “Our new branding elements symbolize both our past and our future as a global company.”
American Vanguard started in 1969 as a regional contract manufacturer of agricultural chemicals and has grown to an integrated producer of branded specialty products. The corporation is the holding company for eight umbrella brands, including AMVAC, which manufactures commercial and agricultural products public health, crop protection and other applications.
“Celebrating a 50 year milestone says a lot about the success of a company,” says Eric Wintemute, Chairman and CEO of American Vanguard. “There is no better time than now to align our brands.”
AMVAC’s products control pests that include ants, bed bugs, cockroaches, fleas and ticks, termites, and wasps and hornets.
