10 Jul 2015

PGI announces that it has begun to rollout a new corporate brand and identity that align with its commitment to developing and delivering high-impact solutions for its customers. As a first step in this process, PGI has selected Avintiv as its new company name.

The concept behind the Avintiv name comes from the combination of the words “advanced”, “inventive”, and “innovative” and represents the company’s efforts to bring value to customers and make the world cleaner, safer, and healthier.

PGI has expanded its portfolio significantly and the new name will be distinctive, memorable, and relevant across all three of its areas of focus: infection prevention, personal care, and high performance solutions. Its high performance solutions business offers materials that deliver a performance or environmental advantage over existing and alternative technologies for infrastructure and transportation end customers.

The company is changing the name of its parent company from PGI Specialty Materials, Inc. to Avintiv Inc., as the first step in a broader identity transformation. The company will register similar name changes for many of its operating subsidiaries and will roll out a new branding and identity concept in the coming weeks and months.
