Alcoa presents spinoff company Arconic

arconic-brand-logo-from-their-websiteAlcoa unveiled the name, logo and tagline of its future Value-Add company: “Arconic. Innovation, Engineered.” The spinoff company will focus on manufacturing multi-alloys for the aerospace and auto industries. The future Upstream company will operate under the Alcoa name. The Company’s separation into two, independent, publicly-traded companies in the second half of 2016 remains on track.

The “Arconic” brand represents the future Value-Add company’s iconic heritage and continued commitment to industry-shaping innovation:

– The “A” echoes Arconic’s proud Alcoa heritage;
– “Arc” represents the arc of progress and the continued pursuit of advancement for customers, employees, shareholders and communities; and
– “-conic” speaks to the company’s history of creating iconic products and its constant focus on the next breakthrough innovation.

The tagline, “Innovation, Engineered,” communicates the company’s mission – to invent, develop and deliver products and solutions for high performance customers and industries through precision engineering and advanced manufacturing.

The logo is a two-dimensional icon that the eye sees as a three-dimensional projection, symbolizing Arconic’s ambition and ability to make what is often deemed impossible real. Its silhouette pays homage to the Alcoa mark, while the color represents the company’s vibrant, dynamic culture.

The Company also unveiled a fresh iteration of the Alcoa mark for the Upstream company. With the symbol removed from its enclosure, this new logo represents a transformed and agile Upstream company characterized by out-of-the-box thinking. Its bold, geometric capital “A,” with the sharp apex, signifies an upward trajectory and constant pursuit of stronger performance. Finally, the new Alcoa logo will remain “Alcoa blue,” reflecting the strong foundation upon which the company is built.

Both Arconic and Alcoa will be domiciled in the United States and listed on the New York Stock Exchange, Arconic as ARNC and Alcoa as AA. Both will be industry-leading, FORTUNE 500 companies. The Upstream Company will comprise the five business units that today make up Global Primary Products: Bauxite, Alumina, Aluminum, Cast Products and Energy. Arconic will include the three business segments that today comprise Alcoa’s Value Add portfolio: Global Rolled Products, Engineered Products and Solutions, and Transportation and Construction Solutions.
