ARMOR Hosts Open House
ARMOR hosted a customer open house to showcase the company’s new international headquarters and share its success in making such a monumental transition. Attendees of the event included customers from the area, local media, a large contingent of ARMOR international partners who were onsite for the company’s global sales meeting, and ARMOR employees, family and friends. Open house guests were invited to take part in guided building tours, a custom car and motorcycle show, a meet and greet with Frank Fritz of “American Pickers” on the History Channel, food, drink and a formal ribbon-cutting ceremony.
ARMOR formally established and debuted its employee volunteer program named VALOR, Volunteers of ARMOR. As part of VALOR, all ARMOR employees are given 24 hours of paid work release time to participate in volunteer opportunities that serve and support the community.
Through ARMOR’s consumer division Workshop Hero, ARMOR partnered with Bar’s Leaks to bring Metal Rescue Rust Remover Bath and Dry Coat Rust Preventative “down under” to Australia and New Zealand. The Bar’s Leaks brand is widely known in Australia and New Zealand and offers a full line of automotive cleaners and chemicals.
To wrap up the year, ARMOR was named a Michigan 50 Companies to Watch winner by the Michigan Celebrates Small Business Association celebrating innovation, job creation, growth and community impact.
