Rolls-Royce Power Systems Business Unit to Restructure its Brands PVA Associate member Rolls-Royce Power Systems business unit, with its core brand MTU, will present itself more clearly in the future as an integral part of the British Rolls-Royce engineering group. A new brand architecture is currently evolving, which will be visibly implemented as of autumn with the launch of the new MTU website. Rolls-Royce will be the corporate brand and the employer brand. Consequently, the companies within the business unit that include MTU in their names will be given a new designation. MTU, as the brand name customers are familiar with, will continue to be used to identify the companys products and solutions. The current MTU Onsite Energy brand for decentralized power supply systems will be integrated into MTU.The new brand architecture will provide clarity and improve the recognition of our company and its products, said Andreas Schell, CEO Rolls-Royce Power Systems. Our new profile is a clear commitment to Rolls-Royce, as its second largest business unit. By the same token, Rolls-Royce is committed to our MTU brand, which is something we are proud of, Schell added. nSEPTEMBER 2019FOGHORN 41'
