A&P Group has moved from its insignia of over three decades and created a new bold logo and two sub brands of A&P Marine and A&P Energy, alongside a company tag line “Engineering Strength”. The brand strategy and design was undertaken by UK branding and communications agency TDG Integrated who have previously worked with shipping and marine clients. A&P Group have launched a new corporate website www.ap-group.co.uk and a corporate video.
