WESTWAY GROUP ANNOUNCES CORPORATE REBRANDING; CHANGES NAME TO CONTANDA LLC
Houston, TX—[October 31]—Westway Group LLC today announced that the company has changed its name to Contanda LLC, effective immediately. The name Contanda (pronounced con-tahn-dah) captures the journey that the company has embarked on as it transforms the organization into a major provider of bulk storage and terminalling services with expanded product lines and markets.
G.R. (Jerry) Cardillo, President and CEO of Contanda, said, “Building on the proud 60-year history of this company, we are excited to continue our transformation with this re-branding. Moving forward, the Contanda brand will provide the organization with a new and more accurate identity, furthering our expanded growth strategy”.
Contanda is committed to maintaining the same level of operational excellence and customer satisfaction it has provided throughout its history, and looks forward to bolstering the company’s focus and service base to include a broader range of petrochemicals and other energy markets. To that end, the company recently completed an important step in its transformation with the relocation of its corporate headquarters from New Orleans, Louisiana to Houston, Texas, enabling Contanda to be geographically closer to its business and customers.
Geoff Roberts, Chairman of the Contanda board, stated, “The new Contanda name reinforces our strategic commitment and focus on managing petrochemical and hydrocarbon products, providing innovative services, and serving new and expanded markets. We want to build on our legacy of safety, service, and quality while we remind both our existing and new customers that Contanda has the expertise to deliver capabilities far beyond our foundation in agricultural products – to include a full range of petrochemical and hydrocarbons.”
