PM&M / Resources / Vocabulary :

vormals

(abbreviated vorm.) and its related form ehemals (abbreviated ehem.) are sometimes found as part of company names. Both can be translated as either formerly known as or formerly owned by and are fully interchangeable.

This is even today still used to introduce a name change for a factory or business whilst keeping the well known name of the predecessor for marketing and/or legal purposes.
