Voltaix Announces Trademarks, Redefines its Business Strategy
Voltaix, www.voltaix.com, a leading manufacturer of chemicals and gases for the semiconductor and photovoltaics industries, today announced its federal filings for three Trademarks:
“Improving Semiconductor PerformanceT”
- an encapsulation of the Voltaix mission,
T - the corporate logo, which has been used on correspondence, products, trade show graphics and various business forms since the founding of the company in 1986, and
- which has a long history of use in describing the unique products of Voltaix.
“Looking to the future, we see a need to go beyond our present business model - ‘Market to end-users; sell through distributors’ - and become more directly involved with the end-user community,” commented John P. de Neufville, Ph.D., President and founder of Voltaix. “‘Improving Semiconductor PerformanceT’
encapsulates the mission of Voltaix, which is focused on providing leading edge products for the industry. VoltaixT describes the unique products of Voltaix. Regarding the company logo, we are sentimental about its history. It was created by Lou Orcini, a little-known retired illustrator from Life magazine who knocked on our door during the summer of 1986 when the company was in its infancy. He was a true graphic artist and created our first ads, business cards, stationery and the Voltaix logo, and we want to acknowledge Lou's contributions to the company.”
