Commenting on the new journey, Mithun Chittilappilly, Managing Director, V-Guard Industries Ltd, said, “They say life begins at 40 and at V-Guard it certainly does. And to live that, we have decided to re-invent ourselves completely. We are not just thinking up the next innovation. We are constantly seeking to understand human life and its relationship with tools and appliances. And then to evolve a seamless experience with thoughtfully engineered products in our quest to enriching consumer lives. We took a conscious call to go beyond not just being a trustworthy, reliable, honest brand but to also evolve into a thoughtful, inspiring and dynamic trendsetter. The new identity reinforces the new age values that we would want to imbibe in our endeavour to create thoughtfully smart and technologically intuitive products for our discerning consumers.”
Ramachandran V, Director & COO, V-Guard Industries Ltd, said, “V-Guard today has evolved into a healthy pan Indian consumer brand and business, emerging as one of the potential leaders in our space. We are now laying the foundation for the next stage of growth. We will position ourselves to competitively benefit from developments in consumer, market and technology space so that we can thrive another 40 years and well beyond. A beginning in this direction is already made through our launches in AC stabilizer (design leadership), Verano (IoT enabled geysers) and our range of Smart Inverters a market leading digital product that transforms a non-speaking device into a potentially high engagement product and more that will follow. The scope of what we offer through these products will demonstrate that we can deliver market leading products with superior and exciting features to delight the taste palette of our ever expanding consumer base.”
Nandagopal Nair, Vice President, Corporate Communication, V-Guard Industries Ltd, added, ‘’When we started this exercise a few years back we decided that the new identity that we create will not be a cosmetic change but will be built on certain new age values that the brand wanted to imbibe in alignment with the changing consumer landscape and of course in synch with the vision for the brand going into the future. Creation of the identity was just the start point. We then worked on the creation of a new design language system. How it enveloped over packaging, retail, various touch points internally and our work space environment has been exhilarating to say the least. We will now be unleashing a 360-degree integrated marketing communications shortly to drive the message forward.”
