CVTech Group inc. officially adopts the name NAPEC Inc.

Shares should trade under symbol NPC effective September 11, 2014

DRUMMONDVILLE, QC, Sept. 9, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - CVTech Group Inc. ("CVTech" or the "Corporation") (TSX: CVT) announces that it has officially adopted, effective today, the name NAPEC Inc. ("NAPEC"). The change follows shareholder approval at the Corporation's annual and special meeting held on July 23, 2014.

The change of name of the Corporation is required following the sale, in October 2012, of its operations in the CVT systems and related products segment. Pursuant to this transaction, the Corporation had notably undertaken to proceed with the change of name within two years. Furthermore, the Corporation believes that the new name will be more representative of the sector in which it currently operates and the image it wishes to project in its target markets.

The name NAPEC is drawn from the Corporation's field of business and geographic reach: a North American Power and Energy Corporation. The new logo, more modern in style with rectilinear, regularly spaced lettering, reflects mechanical precision and discipline, two conditions essential for excellence in NAPEC's industry.

  • The stylized yellow lightning bolt symbolizes energy.
  • The triangle replacing the letter A represents stability, the structure of a powerline pylon and a will to aim high and stand out.
  • Bright yellow symbolizes what people have in mind when they imagine the colour of energy.

"The adoption of this new name reflects a vision of synergy, teamwork and renewal. The new brand image will also reinforce the efforts being made to gradually implement our new business model across our North American network", said Pierre L. Gauthier, President and Chief Executive Officer of NAPEC.

NAPEC shares should trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol NPC effective September 11, 2014.
