New brand and logo
Our well-known Wilcoxon Research brand is changing to Wilcoxon Sensing Technologies. This new brand and fresh identity, honors our commitment to the quality and reliability of Wilcoxon products. It also better aligns our name with the broad scope of products and services that we provide. Our new brand will keep us strong, celebrates the history and heritage of the Wilcoxon story, and makes the logo and name more relevant for today and the future. The new logo is a strong representation of our company. The “W” in the brand is aimed at being instantly recognizable. The text is bold. The use of blue and gray reflects elements of Amphenol, our new parent company, and also goes back to Wilcoxon’s heritage color palette of blue.
What you will see in the near term
The transition has started. In the coming weeks and months ahead, we are rolling out our new brand and switching to the new logo, Wilcoxon Sensing Technologies. You can expect initial changes to take place across our website, specification/data sheets, and sales materials.
For purchases and other business communications, please transition to our new company name:
Wilcoxon Sensing Technologies, 20511 Seneca Meadows Pkwy, Germantown, MD 20876
Your principal contact person(s) remain(s) the same. Additionally, all phone numbers remain the same.
