Why this name?
The new name for the merged packaging and distribution companies is Novio Packaging BV. Novio clearly refers to ‘new’, and is also a reference to Noviomagus (the Latin name for Nijmegen), that literally translated means ‘new market place’. Nijmegen is the city where the two Novio directors come from, and is close to Wijchen, where the company has its new head office.
