a globally unique production process

Automation benefiting employees​

An original industrial model:

ARMOR has developed a globally unique production process enabling Thermal Transfer rolls to be manufactured without the use of solvent: SolFree® - a concrete example of ARMOR's investment in innovation in support of sustainable development.

This major breakthrough for the industry in the area of environmental protection also represents a guarantee regarding the long-term availability of SolFree® Thermal Transfer ribbons should any domestic and/or international regulations impose any limits on the use of solvents.

In addition to the design of Thermal Transfer consumables, ARMOR also develops its own production processes.

Thanks to an ambitious training programme in keeping with the evolution of production methods and in association with consistent investment in our production facilities, ARMOR's production capacity is constantly growing while maintaining stable personnel numbers.

Currently a market leader in the Thermal Transfer consumables sector, ARMOR is active worldwide through its sales offices, as well as through its transformation plants in the USA, Brazil, Mexico, India, South Africa, China and Singapore.

Nearly 100% of semi-finished products are manufactured at the French site near Nantes, and subsequently transformed to order as close as possible to the market being served.

So any gain in market share benefits both the local business and the plant located in France. A unique model of its type, the opposite of delocalisation.

This technological leadership makes us unique in our industry. We are committed to stay at the forefront of innovation in both product and Social Innovation. ​Our expertise in ink technologies and thin film coating is an opportunity to develop new activities, particularly in the field of renewable energies.
