What does murex mean?
murex, lat. snail. During our search
for a company name we have happened to find the name murex, the latin
translation for purple snail (a kind of sea snail). It was very
important to us to find a name for our company which has a
relation to our main product - the screw or, in German sense, snail -
which mainly had to be short and concise. It also had to be easy
expressable in the languages (D/E/F) of our target market. The name
murex seems to be a good decision to us.
