■About the new trade name

The Japanese word hennge refers to the transformation and subsequent appearance of a person, animal, god, or Buddha. The word also refers to various other types of changes in appearance. In these turbulent times, we want to use ever-evolving technologies as a tool to enjoy helping people facing the challenges of all kinds of changes without fearing those changes ourselves. As an IT company born in Japan, we want to bring excitement to the world. We have chosen to call our company "HENNGE" as a symbol of our commitment. The new company name denotes transformation, changes, and the resulting challenges.

■New logo


■About the new logo

The new logo's design combines the letter H (the first letter of HENNGE) with the shape of a change-triggering big bang as it expands. The logo was designed by positioning four circles to the top, bottom, left, and right so that they touch each other and then taking the central circular portion. The logo expresses our resolve and wish to extend our reach from the center of the circle (Japan) to the continents of the world in order to build a relationship (GOEN) ― five (GO) circles (EN) ― with everyone there.
