  • The above applies in both interior and exterior applications, notably when exposed to aggressive liquids (oil, solvents and gasoline) and in extreme environments (sunlight and humidity)

All the following AVERY DENNISON/FASSON receptors are now approved by the UL for use with ARMOR’S AXR 1.

This award recognizes innovating companies that have developed groundbreaking projects within their production processes, for a more modern and attractive industry.

ARMOR is highly committed to innovation and has been developing a permanent process of automation and digital transformation of its industrial facilitiesWithin its production plant based in La Chevrolière (Loire-Atlantique), ARMOR has fully robotized the slitting process for inked polyester films. AGVs (Automatic Guided Vehicles) have been used in the production units to meet the increasing volume of workflows and to reduce the manual labor required for certain tasks. For these projects, ARMOR integrates its digital and industrial robotics systems internally "The objective of the program is threefold: to support a fast-growing and competitive market, to reduce production costs and to ensure that the core business continues to be located in France”, explains Christophe Derennes, ARMOR's Industrial Director.

To support the skills development of its employees, and to meet new training needs, ARMOR has developed bespoke programs through the ARMOR University. Since its launch in 2011, more than 200 employees have been trained and have acquired new skills.

This ambitious and continuous program of the automation and digital transformation of its industrial facilities has seen ARMOR strengthen its position as global market leader with a growth rate that is twice as fast as the market on a like-for-like basis. “I am very proud to see ARMOR receive the Industry of the Future Showcase award. We are committed to maintaining a promising future for this industry in France through our many technological and digital innovations", stated Hubert de Boisredon, CEO of ARMOR.
