Company Name Suggestion
Posted by Anonymous on

Hi I'm Richard, We're looking for a company name and tag line for our new business. We are engaged in de-containerising of imported goods, which would go into pallet storage awaiting re-packing or re-configuration then packed into packaging or POS manufactured by ourselves and delivered direct to store or RDC.. for example: One of clients imports fragrant soaps and candles in bulk containers from China. We receive the containers and de-stuff the contents into racked pallet storage locations according to fragrance i.e. yasmine, lavender, etc... On a weekly basis we would then receive retailer demands and ship replacement stocks in corrugated packaging or display materials manufactured by ourselves. This is a simple examplle but the company assets and skills are extremely vversatile and responsive enough for manny markets...(Corrugated packaging is core business... the NEW business exists to add value and occupy spare square meters)... Look forward to talking further!

Sounds like you are about to get into the logistics business. Since you already have a business name ("Acme" for example), call you new business "Acme Logistics" and use as a tagline "A Poud Member of the Acme Group) to tie the two companies together.
Hope that helps.

Hmm, That is certainly a possibility and provoking. Our main company has packaging in the title and the internal view was to think of something completely different... Food for though though!

That's a great thought though-- adding the definition of what you essentially do to the end of your already existing name is brilliant, and may very well work for you.
In terms of a name from me, I just can't seem to get the visual of a monkey in the middle out of my head, although that seems hardly professional...
" Balancing your product " IN STOCK""
Ok, so that's not my best, but it may inspire some thought so I gave it a shot!

The first thing I thought of when I saw the description of your company was those lovely packing peanuts that like to cling to everything.
With that in mind and the fact that you do a lot of product redistributing, how about a logo with an "s" shaped packing peanut and the name:
Your slogan could then describe your services such as:
"Your full service product management provider"
Or for a more serious name:
"Import Management Systems"
