Watteredge was originally started in 1949 as the Watteredge Company and then became known as Watteredge-Uniflex in 1972. In a total modernization effort of the company between 2000 and 2006, new company branding logic resulted in new marketing strategies and corporate identification policies for a consistent graphic representation of Watteredge.
