The company, recently acquired by Apax Partners and OMERS Capital Partners, says the new name is based on being at the “center of engagement” for its customers worldwide. In addition to the corporate name Cengage Learning, the company will continue to support the brands Heinle, Gale, Wadsworth, Delmar Learning, Brooks/Cole, and South-Western, among others. The company will introduce the Cengage Learning identity throughout the business beginning on August 31, 2007 and in the meantime, will continue to operate under the Thomson Learning name.
