Protecting people and property through product traceability.

ARMOR Industrial Coding and Printing designs and produces inked films used in the technology of Thermal Transfer
Thermal Transfer is a printing technology ideal for industrial environments and used for marking variable information on labels and flexible packaging: barcodes, logos, text, expiry dates and batch numbers. Such information identifies products and guarantees traceability. The global market leader, ARMOR is proficient throughout the chain, from ink design to the production and marketing of thermal transfer ribbon under the Inkanto brand. It is therefore able to offer customers guaranteed quality.

Automation benefiting employees
The Thermal Transfer business of ARMOR includes transformation units in the US, Canada, Brazil, Mexico, India, South Africa, Kenya, Colombia, China, Turkey and Singapore.

Semi-finished products are manufactured in France at the plant in La Chevrolière, near Nantes, and then transformed locally as close as possible to customers' needs. This unique co-industrialization model generates dual benefits for the business at the local level and in France.

The group's investments in training programs and in the latest generation of machinery and robots increase production volumes to meet strongly growing demand.
An original industrial model: co-industrialization
ARMOR recycles all inked film waste from its production site in La Chevrolière (France) into solid recovered fuel (SRF) which is then used in cement plants to replace fossil fuels.

ARMOR has also established Rec’Pet, a collection service offered to users for the recycling of their Thermal Transfer ribbons.
