Effective July 1, Amos Press Inc. officially changed its name to Amos Media Company.
Changing the name is part of the company’s concerted efforts during the past year (and continuing forward) to transform itself into a multimedia firm.
Amos President Jeff Greisch informed all Amos employees of the important change in a company-wide announcement released June 30.
“Part of the transformation is how we position ourselves in the marketplace with our marketing efforts and in fact our company name,” Greisch said.
“Amos Press Inc. certainly well represents the rich history of our company, but does not adequately position us in a fast moving and increasingly digital environment.
“Thus we have determined that Amos Media Company better reflects who we are today, and the name captures both our present and future product/service offerings.”
Greisch explained that while the name change is not a huge shift in the company’s history, it is better suited to current marketplace realities.
“The name change, while not overly dramatic, is very important nonetheless,” Greisch said.
“Amos Media better reflects our company and its mission today, and the name is more ideally suited to today’s information and advertising marketplace.”
As part of the rebranding, a new Amos Media logo is being designed and will be utilized across all Amos publications, websites, stationery and marketing materials.
Look for the new logo to appear in Linn’s Stamp News and on Linns.com in the coming days.
