Start of a new era: DIC Asset AG is now Branicks Group AG
Frankfurt am Main, 4 October 2023. DIC Asset AG, ISIN: DE000A1X3XX4, one of Germany’s leading listed real estate companies, has been renamed: The specialist in office and logistics real estate presents itself on the market under its name Branicks Group AG (“Branicks”) since 2 October 2023. After a unique 25-year success story, the company is starting a new era with the new brand and wants to set an example for stability and profitability in the real estate industry, expressed by the distinctive “B” of Branicks.
“The new Branicks brand is a clear performance promise to our customers and a reminiscence of our employees. Branicks is the self-confident wordplay of the term ‘brains’ – expressing the unique competence and commitment of our teams – and the term ‘bricks’, expressing what we create for our clients in terms of real estate values. Finally, the name Branicks also sounds more international, which is a clear sign of our aspirations for our future,” says Sonja Wärntges, CEO of Branicks.
The previously differentiated brand messages of its sub-brands, GEG German Estate Group GmbH and DIC Onsite GmbH, will be subsumed under the unified Branicks brand from now on.
New corporate design – iconic use of space and light
An entirely new corporate design was developed as part of the renaming process. The “B” of Branicks serves as central symbol of the new brand, which it uses to present itself with confidence toward the outside. The open construction of translucent flow surfaces is reminiscent of a three-dimensional projection of spheres and building envelopes. At the same time, the figurative mark signifies transparency, openness and creativity. The light theme, being one of the key design elements in architecture, serves as guiding brand element. Another characteristic aspect of the new design is a distinct colour spectrum. Today, the new brand identity will be presented to a peer-to-peer audience at the real estate fair Expo Real in Munich for the first time.
