New logo and web address
To underscore its commitment and ambition, the company introduces an updated corporate identity.

The corporate web site also has been updated and can be found under the new domain name www.esko.com.
"The shorter 'Esko' brand has a dynamic, modern emphasis and corresponds in fact to how our customers and other industry participants refer to us", continues Knudsen.

The legal company name will remain "Esko-Graphics".
