Downer EDI launches new company names and branding approach
Monday, 2 July 2007


Downer EDI Limited (Downer EDI) today launched a new branding portfolio covering the corporate entity and its core businesses. From today, the primary business division names of Downer EDI have changed to:

- Downer EDI Engineering (previously Downer Engineering)
- Downer EDI Mining (previously Roche Mining)
- Downer EDI Works (previously Works Infrastructure)
- Downer EDI Rail (previously EDI Rail)

The brands of the corporate entity and primary business divisions have also changed to provide a more cohesive alignment across the group (refer page 2 of this release).

No changes have been made to the company names and brands of the consulting businesses of Downer EDI, which include CPG Corporation, Duffill Watts Group, Coomes Consulting and Snowden Group.

Commenting on the move, Downer EDI Managing Director, Stephen Gillies, said the changes in company names and brand identity accompany an extensive internal program of alignment across the group around culture, processes, systems and client service and these activities have been in play for some time.

“Downer EDI organisationally will continue to benefit from the growth opportunities on offer. It has been necessary to transform and integrate our business, better define our corporate identity and brand and make this more visible to our clients and our many other stakeholders,” Mr Gillies said.

“The changes take the strength of our divisions and maximises them under the corporate banner and are designed to give Downer EDI a more global, uniform corporate identity and greater visibility,” he said.

Downer EDI Limited ( www.downeredi.com ) is an Australian top-100 company that provides comprehensive engineering and infrastructure management services to the public and private transport, energy, communications and resources sectors across Australia, New Zealand, Asia Pacific and into the United Kingdom.
