GBL International has announced that it has changed its name to Global Brands Limited.

The name change will be company wide and will effect all of GBL's current livery from its fleet of transporters and website to company stationary and promotional vehicles.

Steve Perez, Founder and MD of GBL, said: "This name change is more than just a bit of corporate posturing. We felt that it was time that GBL's' identity evolved to represent what the company has become and how we intend it to grow in the future. Global Brands Limited was chosen to reflect the growing strength of each of our brands both domestically and internationally - especially now that we export to over 30 countries around the world."
