SLS is a leading provider of mechanical components and high quality bearings and related products. However, its reputation is primarily driven by and over shadowed by its principal product brand. In light of plans to further expand its regional presence, there was a critical need that SLS build its own brand and market presence.
We created a new strategic roadmap and a differentiated positioning for SLS that anchored the brand on the promise of ‘Creating Advantage’, expressing the tangible edge that SLS brings to its stakeholders. This is supported by its unmatched expertise in bearings and solutions, its experienced and qualified people, processes and an extensive strategic network.
The promise provided a catalyst for building internal brand culture, uniting staff across the region, attracting new talent and encouraging better talent management.
A strong and modernised identity was also created to reflect SLS’ new positioning and to support communications.
Riding on the brand strategy and recommendations, SLS has gone on to set up SLS Pro and SLS Academy, respectively the services and training divisions of the business, and continues to establish itself as a forerunner in the space of mechanical components and engineering.
