EMCO Building Products Corp. Changes Name to Building Products of Canada Corp. - New name evokes history, reinforces commitment to Canadian market



    MONTREAL, June 20 /CNW Telbec/ - EMCO Building Products Corp., one of
Canada's leading manufacturers and distributors of quality home building and
home renovation products, today officially announced it has changed its name
to Building Products of Canada Corp.
    This name change represents a return to roots, and evokes a rich history.
The company was first incorporated as Building Products Limited, and in 1964
became Building Products of Canada Limited. The company then joined the EMCO
organization and underwent a subsequent renaming in 1987.
    The BP in the oval, though modernized over the years, was retained
continuously as a corporate trademark because it had become synonymous with
integrity, quality and service to the Canadian building industry. Today,
Building Products of Canada Corp. has officially reclaimed that visual
identity. The company's new logo places the BP inside an open oval, evoking
the letter 'C'.
    "Our new name channels over 100 years of history. It represents both the
brick-and-mortar and emotional investments we have in this country, as well as
our commitment to our customers, suppliers and employees. It says much about
who we are and where we are going as a company," said Yves Gosselin, President
and CEO.
