Is reflected in a team culture that is committed, professional and hardworking. We are respectful and passionate in all that we do and we place high values on clear communication and excellence in service.

In December 2020,  KEW had a two-day retreat at Taumeasina Resort to review its strategic direction. This resulted in a revised vision and mission. Our desire to move forward also meant that we had to re-brand our company image. This meant a brand-new way of thinking, a brand-new way of doing things, a brand-new set of uniforms – ultimately a new KEW! That is not to say that we have discarded everything that helped build KEW up since 2003. The challenges our company has experienced over the years have made us what we are today.

As part of the re-branding exercise, we designed a new logo.

The LOGO took a number of design attempts to ensure that it represented our vision and mission. After 3 months, we all agreed on the design that we are now using.  If you look at the logo there are two arrows – a small one merging with the larger one. The arrows indicate a forward motion. The smaller arrow symbolizes humble beginnings, resulting in bigger rewards. With the name KEW connecting with the arrows, it symbolizes our vision of moving forward while not forgetting our modest beginning.

Beneath the name KEW is a line that separates it from the slogan “innovate, design, solve”. The line represents balance. In other words, KEW always needs to be balanced in its aspirations to be innovative, design-focused, and solve problems in the engineering industry.

The words that the late Founder and Managing Director of KEW Consult, Latu Sauluitoga Kupa, kept using during the logo design phase was “Massage le logo ma toe massage”. Keep molding the logo to achieve the desired result. At the time the company was preparing to launch its logo, Latu, passed away in March 2021. We wish to acknowledge this great man who was visionary and founded this company on God. He left us with this inspiring logo.

God bless everyone.
