Markem, an American company, and Imaje, a French company, were two global leaders in marking, coding, and traceability products. Because they were fierce competitors, bringing them together to form the largest product identification solutions provider in the world required a strong brand story and careful integration of corporate cultures. This project was created with strategic partner, Catalyst, Inc.
