2013 Name & Logo



NIBA-The Belting Association

Logo: 2013_NIBA_Logo

After searching and discussing for over one year, the Marketing Committee presented the 2013 NIBA logo. The two main search criteria for the updated logo were: 1) to have a more modern look and, 2) to convey the idea of motion. It was also discussed changing the color but thought that the correct color (Pantone 221 C), is part of the NIBA brand, and would be a tie to the past.

Several member companies submitted designs to the Committee for consideration, which were improvements on the existing logo, but didn’t have that “wow” or cool factor. In the Fall meeting, the group agreed to find an outside company specializing in Branding and Corporate logos. Jennifer and a Graphic Designer at the NIBA office submitted some concepts before we found an outside company to work with. Jennifer’s design was well accepted by the Committee who were unanimous in presenting to the Board for approval. The new logo was approved by the Board after several days of good discussion.

The new logo accomplished the initial goals of an updated look and showed motion. It also provided a better overall shape and presented a balance which represents the synergies between Distributors and Manufacturers.


The mission of NIBA-The Belting Association is to promote the common business interests of all distributor/fabricators and manufacturers of conveyor and flat power transmission belting and material that enhances/changes belt.

Guiding Principles:

  • NIBA provides a forum for the exchange of information and new ideas among members in order that the belting needs of the market place can be served in the most effective and efficient manner.
