"A guiding element of our strategy was designing a differentiated position in the mind of stakeholders, customers and competitors," said Gregg O. Lehman, president and chief executive officer of MGC Diagnostics Corporation. "Historically, we have operated with three separate identities - Angeion® for the investment community, New Leaf®, in the fitness business and MEDGRAPHICS®, in the cardio-respiratory business. Of these identities, MEDGRAPHICS commanded the strongest identity and value position. Thus, maintaining MEDGRAPHICS heritage, remaining loyal to our customers and leveraging our long-standing brand equity, were critical success elements to our branding strategy.

MGC Diagnostics will execute a public launch of its new corporate identity at the European Respiratory Society (ERS) Annual Congress 2012 on September 1-5, 2012 in Vienna, Austria. The ERS is the largest international gathering of respiratory professionals, brought together to learn about the latest scientific developments, innovation in cardio-respiratory technology, newly released products, clinical practice and patient care.

Todd Austin, executive vice president – global marketing and corporate strategy of MGC Diagnostics, said, "Our new name, MGC Diagnostics® is instantly recognizable to customers, competitors and the cardio-respiratory marketplace. Our new identity is an everyday reminder of our purpose: Provide unmatched customer service and support; Relentlessly make improvements; and Anticipate and solve unmet customer needs. The three vertical elements of our logo represent these pillars of commitment. The circle encompassing the pillars represents our market, because we believe that everyone who interacts with, uses or benefits from our products is our customer."
