The Institute of Caster and Wheel Manufacturers (ICWM) affiliated trade association of MHI recently unveiled a new brand identity, symbolized by the introduction of a new logo that signifies the industry's growth and transformation, and celebrates the culture of strength and performance built over the association's 81-year history. The new logo features a wheel and caster with a contemporary feel.
“The launch of our new logo kicks-off a new era at ICWM that speaks to who we are as an association and that we are a direct reflection of the community we serve – dynamic, modern and bold,” said Jeff Woroniecki, Managing Executive, ICWM. “We are proud to be ahead of the curve in the industry, and our new brand identity illustrates how far ICWM has come in its 81-year history.”
