Logo and descriptive narrative of PFT
The Logo Colours (Sunrise Orange & leaf green) are the house colours of PTC Group Companies. Leaf Green represents our concern for the environment and community. Sunrise Orange represents the eternal source of energy. Together the two colours represent the harmony between the energy of business enterprise and its symbiotic relationship with the communities that its businesses serve.
The Orange part of the logo signifies PTC Group as a live being; joyous and aspiring to expand its presence in every aspect of communities and their lifestyles. This part is extended in harmony with the green part of the Logo which represents the needs and beliefs of the communities. The extended shape of the green part stands for commitment to the communitys sustainable growth. The uniform and transparent space between the two parts of the Logo represent confidence, faith and trust which allows both parts to co-exist as a whole; in harmony.
