Values & commitments

A company committed to defending its values

ARMOR builds its growth and its industrial project on the values of humanism, innovation, commitment and customer focus with the objective of responding to society's many challenges.
ARMOR demands excellence and performance with an objective shared by its entire workforce: to be the best in their profession. What gives a company its strength is its vision, its people, its culture and its values. ARMOR bases its activities on four fundamental values inherited from its history and which provide it with its soul. ARMOR achieves its ambitions by incorporating these values at the very heart of its day-to-day activities.

Our four values

ARMOR believes in management through trust, team spirit, respectful & constructive labour relations and the well-being of its employees. Every employee is encouraged to initiate progress and change. We aim to be socially responsible and to build a people-focused company based on consistency between our actions and our convictions.
ARMOR has decided to adopt a long-term vision and invests in responsible Research & Development, seeking out technologies capable of meeting the needs of future generations. We ask our suppliers and service providers to join us as we tackle the challenges of the future, against the backdrop of competitiveness and the shared values of sustainable development.
Our objective is excellence and performance. We commit ourselves to creating a collective spirit of success enabling each individual to develop their own potential within the company and ensuring that people are proud to work at ARMOR.
Placing customer focus at the heart of the company means a culture based on understanding and serving customer needs. ARMOR strives for perfection in the manufacture of its products. Throughout the world, we can count on enthusiastic and responsive personnel for whom customer satisfaction is the No. 1 objective.
