Sonepar Rebrands Its Brand Identity

Electrical and industrial distributor Sonepar has rebranded itself by unveiling a new logo.

The company announced the change Tuesday. It is the first time in two decades that Sonepar has rebranded.

The Sonepar group had sales of €23 billion in 2020, serving customers in 40 countries, making their day-to-day operations more efficient. This is made possible by investing in cutting-edge supply chains and digital, omnichannel technologies to deliver the highest level of customer service.

The new brand has been designed to be easily deployed across all digital channels. The new logo is an evolution of the previous brand, which was rolled out in 2001, and builds on the past. The brand mark has two interlocking orbits to represent Sonepar’s balance of global scale and local empowerment.

Philippe Delpech, Sonepar CEO commented, “To support our transformation, it is the right time to renew our brand identity. This is in response to our customers’ needs and market developments. We serve our audience in every possible channel, from on-screen to in-person. On-time, in-full delivery and exemplary service are embedded in our DNA. We aim to be a leading pioneer of the energy transition. Operating with complete integrity, our business behaviour and levels of responsibility set the highest standards. People are essential to our business. We champion difference and diversity. Our people are ambitious, driven by an entrepreneurial spirit, and they are essential to our business. They make the difference, every day.”

Matt Pothecary, Chief Communications Officer and Sustainability, stated: “By modernising the brand mark and improving its legibility, the new logo enables the brand to project an updated and modern image to all of Sonepar’s stakeholders. Far more than just a badge, our brand signifies who we are, how we behave and what makes our business so distinct and unique. We build long-term relationships based on mutual respect and champion sustainable practices. We lead by example doing what is right, giving our best performance in everything we do.”

“The rebrand also recognises the true Sonepar’s evolution into a global group, drawing on the skill and passion of its 45,000 associates around the world. Sonepar is launching this new brand on the back of steady, profitable growth which has built an undisputed leadership position for the Group thanks to a unique combination of being family-owned, with a long-term horizon, a best-in-class leadership, an engaged workforce and demanding corporate governance,” the company announced.

The Group’s ambition is to remain the world leader in B-to-B electrical products, systems, and services distribution, serving customers with an omnichannel digital experience, promoting best-in-class sustainability, and ensuring associates a diverse and inclusive working environment.
