About: (Est. 2013) Axiall Corporation is “the new industry leader created by the pending merger of Georgia Gulf and the commodity chemicals business of PPG. With enhanced vertical integration and portfolio diversification, Axiall emerges as a Fortune 500-size company with tremendous growth opportunities.

Ed.’s Notes: Haven’t seen a vertical logo in such a long time. Now I remember why. Logo detail and applications below (or after the jump).
Select quote: “The vertical orientation of the letters signals Axiall as a new and different kind of company. It symbolizes our enhanced vertical integration, a key component in our business strategy and a significant benefit of the merger.
The unique placement of the double ‘ll’ at the bottom of the logo symbolizes the two organizations being blended to form Axiall: Georgia Gulf and PPG’s chlor-alkali and derivatives business. These twin columns represent a solid base and merger of equals, giving the logo structural integrity and a feeling of unification.”
Plans are in development for coming back to Europe in Spring of 2018 with the current top contender host city of Barcelona.
