Maclean-Fogg Component Solutions Questions

Questions and Answers

Why was there a need for company name change?

We needed to communicate our unique set of capabilities – fasteners, linkage and suspension, and engineered components – in a way that was easier for our customers to navigate and understand.

Why no longer “Vehicle Systems”?

Our strategic direction has changed from primarily automotive to now having expanded into 14 different markets. This expansion requires a separate, tailored approach for our automotive customers and each of our other customer markets. Each approach has one thing in common: We focus on solving their problems. So, our new brand is appropriately named MacLean-Fogg Component Solutions.

What does the new logo stand for?

This modern brand mark is steeped in heritage – based on the iconic two hexes. The inside hex is made up of three key components representing fit, form and function – the keys to manufacturing precision component solutions. They also point outward with optimism and direction for growth, symbolizing the integral roles of our clients, investors, and associates. Each facet of the brand mark also highlights an aspect of the MacLean-FoggCS business. The trim of the Hex represents aluminum control arms; the base is a hot forged wheel or axle nut; the precision surfaces call to mind those found in formed and machined components; fasteners are embodied in the hex; and polymer technologies in the dome.
