DALTON, GA, May 27, 2003 - The commercial carpet industry’s finest family of branded nylon fiber systems just got better. Timed with the recent announcement of Honeywell Nylon’s new nylon 6 business unit, the Zeftron® Premium Nylon 6ix Fiber Systems today unveiled its new brand identity system.
The new system responds to the evolving needs of the commercial carpet customer and end-user, while organizing and promoting significant product enhancements and attributes.
According to Tim Blount, Zeftron marketing manager for the commercial markets, “The new identity system speaks more directly to the features and benefits of each of our branded product offerings."
The new identity system reflects the evolving needs of the commercial interiors products marketplace. Based on the four core requirements of the commercial carpet customer, the new identity system readily articulates the core attribute of each product in the line.
Adds Blount, “For more than 30 years, the Zeftron line has been synonymous with the highest levels and balance of style, performance, renewability, and accountability. The new identity prioritizes the core benefit of each product in the line and appropriately directs the customer at its given priority. The product line is based on an understanding that each and every customer and specifier has the same needs, but with differing priorities based on application and end-use."
