MACTAC IS NOW OFFICIALLY ARMOR'S MOST RECENT PARTNER

Armor is partnering with Mactac , a worldwide leader in the manufacture of self-adhesives for labelling, decoration and visual communication. The purpose of this partnership is to enhance Mactac’s existing portfolio of Underwriters Laboratories (UL) approved durable films with thermal transfer ribbons. It includes the addition of Armor’s AXR 7+ thermal transfer ribbon to Mactac’s MH26726 UL file.


A partnership enabling the introduction of premium quality products:

Mactac Durable Films are high-performance adhesive labels designed specifically to resist the extreme hot and cold temperatures, moisture, UV light and chemical exposure often found in durable goods labeling applications. While Armor's      AXR 7+ thermal transfer ribbon is a super-premium resin ribbon with excellent print quality and known resistance to smudging, scratching and high temperatures.


A great combination for a better labeling experience:

By selecting the approved Mactac/Armor combinations, printers and converters can ensure label suitability and compliance with ANSI/UL 969 testing standards for displaying required safety information on UL-Certified products. Additionally, no further label testing is needed.
Mactac Durable Films with Armor AXR 7+ thermal transfer ribbon combination is intended for durable goods and industrial labeling applications such as power tools, appliances, electronics, compliance labels, and warning and instructional labels. They can be used to identify products, track or relay information, instruct or warn consumers about proper product usage.

Now, each of the following Mactac Durable Films has UL approval listed with ARMOR’s AXR 7+:
  • BDE6914: 2.6-mil white UV resistant polypropylene
  • VDG6911: 3.4-mil white vinyl
  • FCD6914: 2.0-mil white polyester
  • FED6914: 2.0-mil bright silver polyester
  • FFD6914N: 2.0-mil matte silver polyester
  • FJD6914: 2.0-mil bright silver void polyester

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.

INAUGURATION OF ARMOR CANADA

A 2nd subsidiary in North America with big ambitions

ARMOR is establishing its 8th international subsidiary for slitting Thermal Transfer ribbons (TTR) in Toronto, Canada. This development is an integral part of the ongoing expansion strategy by the French company, the global market leader in the design, production and slitting of Thermal Transfer ribbons. ARMOR's sole motivation: to support the dynamism of its partners through ever greater efficiency and proximity.

With a presence in North America since 1999 via its subsidiary in Cincinnati, USA, ARMOR has forged a place among the leading companies on the US market by offering its expertise developed in Europe since the early 1980s.

With its new Canadian subsidiary, ARMOR is the first manufacturer of Thermal Transfer film to invest locally in ribbon slitting and distribution activities, thereby becoming the largest producer of rolls on the Canadian market.

Canada is not a new market for ARMOR; it has been covered by ARMOR USA since its early days. More recently a local and experienced sales manager, Barry Bowsher, has been responsible for this region. Determined to continually improve the quality of service offered to its partners, a stock of finished product was established late last year. And the prospects presented by the local market fully justify the installation of local manufacturing facilities by ARMOR.

With this new entity, ARMOR is offering significant support to its Canadian partners, helping them to achieve their growth objectives:

- Access to the most extensive TTR range;
- Guaranteed same-day shipment of stock items;
- Customer pick-up availability;
- Drop shipment support and capability;
- Same-day production and shipment for Preferred Partners*;
- Eliminate import delays and costs;
- Transactions in Canadian dollars;
- Local customer service;
- Canadian sales manager;
- Technical field support.

ARMOR Canada in figures:

- 1,800m² of floor space;
- 2 semi-automatic slitting machines;
- 15,000 roll configurations available;
- Initial stock of 60 items to cover most needs of the Canadian market;
- All products sold are manufactured by ARMOR;
- 15 employees.

The official opening of ARMOR Canada is scheduled to take place on Monday 3 July.
