Langdons Changes Company Name

Langdons Changes Company Name
October 11
09:40 2013

Somerset-based temperature controlled logistics specialist Langdons has changed the company name to Nagel Langdons Ltd.

Langdons became a wholly owned subsidiary of the Nagel-Group of Germany in October 2004. At the time, Nagel understood the strength of the Langdons brand in the UK market however it is felt that the time is now right for a transition to Nagel-Group branding for their extensive UK operations.

Langdons managing directorArran Osman takes up the story. “With nine depots in the UK and consistent growing annual sales we have been very cautious about making any changes which might affect our position in the UK market but feel the time has come to integrate marketing throughout our EU operations and that of course includes us.”

Arran Osman confirms that the branding change  process will not affect service quality and customer satisfaction . The new vehicle livery (see picture) will be applied to new transport equipment as it joins the 270 + vehicle fleet. There will be no retro fitting of new livery to existing fleet vehicles.

The final word goes to Arran Osman: “I am very keen to assure our 2000+ customers that this re-naming will make no difference whatsoever to our very high service levels which we are constantly working to maintain and even improve. As we are part of a network of over 100 depots throughout Europe specialised in food logistics, Nagel Langdons is ideally placed to support retailers and manufacturers in their business throughout Europe.”

If further information is required please contact Arran Osman on 01278 411 114 or e-mail him at aosman@langdons.co.uk.
