ARMOR is introducing a brand-new offer...

Check the video!


With the objective of effectively promoting our new activities in their respective markets, the ARMOR Group recently established distinct brands: OWA for ARMOR Office Printing, ASCA© for ARMOR Beautiful Light and En’ Safe® for ARMOR Films for Batteries. These brands embody the identity of each of our organisations and help to transmit the values they seek to promote, in harmony with those of the Group (www.armor-group.com).
 
Until now our Thermal Transfer business, AICP (ARMOR Industrial Coding and Printing), has not been part of this process.
 
Yet the expansion of AICP outside Europe, notably via new slitting subsidiaries (both recent and to come), alongside the desire expressed by our partners to have additional means of creating loyalty among their own customers and the wish to initiate a new dynamic, have led us to develop a new identity for our range of Thermal Transfer ribbons. By naming our range of Thermal Transfer products we will be able to create a strong identity which will convey the values to be shared by both internal and external stakeholders: quality, reliability, innovation, customer service, commitment, leadership, partnership and adaptability.
 
Our partners will now be able to exploit this identity to promote their range of Thermal Transfer products and create customer loyalty with even more arguments than those on which our success to date has been founded: quality of products and services, an ethical approach to the market and a comprehensive range with competitive and hi-tech solutions.
 
Accordingly, this new brand will replace our neutral range of products with the following objectives:
 
  • To enhance our image as a specialist and world leader:
    • By differentiating the products we produce faced with ever increasing global competition;
    • By creating a strong and recognisable visual identity for our ribbons in a market where nothing more resembles a roll than just another roll;
    • By improving our range of associated services that support the added value offered by rolls made by ARMOR, for both customers and consumers.
 
  • To increase end user loyalty:
    • By confirming the identity of the product and its manufacturer;
    • By offering new product functionalities and innovative services.
 
  • To offer more tools and arguments to our partners; it is much more than a simple name change...
 
We are looking forward to revealing the new brand and numerous associated services this coming September.
