New logo: AMSC
The energy technology company American Superconductor announced yesterday that it would start referring to itself as AMSC, elevating its stock ticker abbreviation to company name. American Superconductor develops electrical grids and wind energy, and is often mentioned in discussions about the future green economy. Although it started out in the United States, it now has activites in Europe and Asia, which might explain why they are dropping "American" from their name.
The name change brings a new logo, incorporating the symbol from the previous logo in a blue square.
The previous logo was introduced in the late 1990s.
