Ingersoll-Rand plc (NYSE: IR) today revealed the company logo for Allegion. The $2 billion security products and services company will begin using the logo upon separation from Ingersoll Rand, which is expected to occur before year-end. The logo, inspired by the intricate systems of protection in which Allegion’s products and solutions work, captures the spirit of the company and its future in the global safety and security industry.
The logo unveil is one of two major milestones for Allegion announced today. Earlier, Ingersoll Rand announced David (Dave) D. Petratis will serve as chairman, president and CEO of Allegion.
“People depend on our products and solutions to work seamlessly at critical moments, and function effortlessly in daily use. We designed Allegion’s logo to reflect the vital nature of what we do, and to emphasize the things that make us unique in the marketplace,” said Michael W. Lamach, chairman and CEO of Ingersoll Rand. “What will set Allegion apart is a history of intelligent, industry-defining products; the partnerships with customers to solve their toughest security challenges; and an ongoing effort to define and raise the standards for safety and security everywhere.”
The logo features a lowercase “a,” and is created through a deliberate arrangement of panels and openings often seen in architecture blueprints. The logo’s vibrant orange color suggests Allegion’s boundless energy. The logo’s design also supports Allegion’s future vision to expand the breadth and depth of its electronic security offerings.“The future of Allegion – and the entire security industry – lies in addressing the needs of an increasingly connected world,” said Lamach. “We’ve made significant strides in integrating electronic offerings into the core of our business, but we’ve only scratched the surface of what we can and will do. Allegion is in a powerful position to combine physical and electronic security offerings, providing comprehensive solutions to meet customer needs.”
