- From March 2015 .A.S.A. starts to introduce the FCC Environment brand to Central and Eastern Europe.
Changing the brand but not the values
The brand (logo) .A.S.A. will be changed to the global brand FCC Environment provided by the parent company FCC, who has been the owner of .A.S.A. since 2006. .A.S.A. represents the environmental services of FCC and citizen services sectors in Central and Eastern Europe.
By introducing FCC Environment in this area, FCC expresses the importance of .A.S.A. concerning their future development strategy, especially in connection with the internationalization process of the whole FCC Group. FCC growing plans are focused on environmental services and water. .A.S.A. expertise boosts that international development.
The brand will be changed, but there will be no changes in company name (legal trade name), as well as in company and contact data.
.A.S.A. profile turnaround
This change of the brand goes hand in hand with the company profile turnaround. .A.S.A. was promoted as a “Waste management company” for many years. The current change also supports the strategic re-orientation to "Resource Management" and "Citizen Services". The focus being on a customer based approach, which is the core strategic direction of the FCC Group.
