DuPont rolled out a new logo as the company prepares for a spinoff next year from DowDuPont.
“For over 200 years, DuPont has been synonymous with life-changing discoveries and scientific know-how, reinventing ourselves along the way. As we take the next step toward becoming the new DuPont, we are unveiling a fresh global brand identity and logo that recognizes our heritage while conveying our focus on a customer-led innovation strategy and purpose-driven culture,” a release stated.
DowDuPont announced in February that its Specialty Products Division would carry the DuPont name when it becomes an independent company, which is expected about June 1, 2019.

“Our new branding is one of many steps we are taking in DuPont’s transformation and amplifies what we do; help our customers solve complex problems, and turn their best ideas into real-world products and solutions,” said Barbara Pandos, chief communications officer, Specialty Products Division of DowDuPont. “It preserves the legacy shape of the iconic DuPont Oval, which for more than a century has provided a seal of quality, performance and trust, but it will no longer be constrained by an elliptical border – signaling a collaborative and open flow of ideas and innovation.”
DuPont’s best-known product brands include Kevlar fiber, Tyvek high-performance materials, Sorona renewably sourced fiber and Danisco food ingredients; and the new DuPont portfolio includes Great Stuff insulating foam sealant.
Beginning today, the new logo will appear and be featured on our digital channels, the release stated. Packaging and signage will be changed over gradually following the launch of the new company.
