Beltton-Group Plc proposes the business name change to Wulff-Group Plc to Annual General Meeting

The Board of Directors of Beltton-Group Plc has decided to propose to the Annual General Meeting that the business name be changed to Wulff-Group Plc. The new name will strengthen the company’s renown as a trustworthy forerunner of good quality and as the market leader within the office business. The general meeting of Beltton-Group Plc will convene on 4 April 2008, and if the proposal is accepted, the change of name will officially come into effect in the middle of April. Heikki Vienola, the CEO of Beltton-Group Plc: ”The long history of Wulff, established in 1890, is a story of reliability and quality. The over-hundred-year-old company and its services have succeeded, despite changes in the market situation and even world wars. Cherishing and developing an exquisite brand is a privilege for Wulff and Beltton. Leading the way, quality and first-class service have always been the cornerstones of Wulff’s business and Beltton-Group has built its business on the very same cornerstones.” In the future, the Wulff brand will be clearly visible in all marketing operations of the Group. The change of name will not change the operations of the subsidiaries. The names and businesses of the subsidiaries of the group and Wulff Oy Ab will remain the same. Wulff Oy Ab sells office supplies and computer accessories to companies, municipalities, cities and to the Finnish Government in line with its contract customer concept. Over a thousand of Wulff’s MiniBar office solutions can be found in Finnish companies. Beltton-Group Plc acquired Wulff Oy Ab, at the time a part of Mercantile Group Oy Ab, in November 2002.
