SQM Club Identity in the Begining

Sqm club Identity in the begining

Square and black letters represented the image of the company between the 70s and 90s, as a sign of its solidity and its determination to play a decisive role in the growth of agribusiness. The ear of wheat in the Q marked during this phase the orientation of the company towards agriculture. The objective of the company could be seen in its logo: the spike was born at the bottom of the letter Q and grew outwards, standing out above the acronym, in line with the mission of the Chilean Chemical and Mining Society, which was the growth of the field and businesses, to yield more fruits and reap success.

SQM Club Identity in 90’s

SQM logo in 90's

The logo took color in the 90s. And the one chosen was not accidental: green, which represents its intimate relationship with nature, the source of its products, and where they ultimately direct their contribution. The acronyms were simplified towards the basics: the square shapes reflected the industrialization that marked this period. Soquimich had started to grow rapidly, expanding its product lines, discovering and applying new production processes, and modernizing its plants. Soquimich stopped being oriented only to agriculture and began to integrate industrial products that were successfully marketed. It was then that the five main lines of business that it still maintains were developed and stabilized: fertilizers, iodine, lithium, industrial chemicals, and potassium.

This logo, with more movement, reflects the evolution of the company towards a new approach: the focus shifts from the product, towards the customer and their needs. Its upward curves are a metaphor for the accelerated development of the company, which in the face of the vertiginous growth of the world economy and its new requirements, began to rethink its structure and position and redefine itself in 2004. The color green was maintained, considering that SQM Club is nature , it is life and it is movement. But a more intense and more modern green. And a new slogan was added – “The Worldwide Business Formula” – reflecting a business formula based on high-quality products and services to satisfy thousands of customers around the world.
