With this initiative, we will strengthen the link and express the alignment between our products and our company identity.
Our Peractive® TAED will remain unchanged as Peractive® TAED stands for proven quality and performance.
Please find below the list of individual products that will change their name:

Current product name              New product name, as of October 1st 2018

These brand name changes do not affect the product itself, the manufacturing process,manufacturing location, raw materials or packaging.
