History

The company was formed in 2005 as Scotia Gas Networks. In September 2014 they changed their name to SGN. The rebrand was driven by a desire to present with a greater unity between the two distinct geographic areas of its business.[3] Those are Scotland and the south of England, where SGN owns and maintains the gas network.

2014 Rebrand

In 2014, Scotia Gas Networks, Scotland Gas Networks and Southern Gas Networks was rebranded to SGN.[4] The company believed the previous names did not represent the business as "bright, forward thinking experts", and that the name "SGN" would be better for customers to understand what SGN does as a company.

The logo was also changed. From 2005, the logo was originally red and blue dots forming a shape of the United Kingdom. The red dots covered Scotland and the southern area on the "Scotia Gas Networks" logo, just Scotland for the "Scotland Gas Networks" logo and just the southern area for "Southern Gas Networks". This was to highlight where works are carried out by the company. The new logo shows a cylinder filled with orange, blue and purple dots.
