VERONA, VA – July 11, 2017 – After months of preparation, GES/EDAC, Inc. (GES) has formally introduced a new corporate logo and website. GES, founded in 1988, became an affiliate company with Dixie Gas and Oil Corporation (Dixie) in 2016, but the GES staff remains the same and providing the highest levels of service and reliability to customers remains central to the Company’s core values – same company, new look. GES is a separate affiliate stand-alone company, but Dixie has made significant financial and resource investments to support the Company, including new office facilities, a new drill rig, expansions of fleet and equipment and marketing resource support. “The objective of redesigning the logo was to present a fresh, innovative and progressive look, while maintaining the traditional values of the GES brand,” said Chris Earhart, president of Dixie. “Exceptional service, reliability, and technical expertise are why customers have made GES successful and this process was to reinforce those traditions, not to change them in any way.”
Work on the logo redesign began in the fall of 2015 and Estland Design of Harrisonburg, Virginia, was selected as the design firm for the project. A final design was chosen in April 2016 and a plan to implement the new logo was developed. Since that time, graphics on vehicles have been replaced, new apparel has been produced, and the new logo has been incorporated into Company forms and documents. Concurrent with the logo design process was a redesign of the GES website. In addition to design consistency, the new website features numerous improvements to provide more information about GES services, to simplify navigation and to accommodate the growing use of online research. Estland Design also performed the design work and the new website is set to go live in August.“The redesign processes for our new logo and website has been a positive experience,” said Wilton Fansler, Principal Environmentalist for GES. “We are proud of our level of service provided to our customers. The new positioning statement: ‘Your Trusted Environmental Partner,’ encapsulates our mission and the way we do business. The new website provides much more detail about the services we provide and, together with the new logo, presents an updated and more progressive look for GES.”
